Within our Rumble in the Jungle topic we have been learning about Oxfam and how they help people in Africa. The children were encouraged to bring in items from home that they no longer need and we then took these items and donated them to Oxfam.
The children are thilled to have started their nursery saving scheme. Parents and carers are encouraged to allow their child to add in any spare change and once they reach a reasonable amount they will have the opportunity to look in catalogues and go on-line and choose something they would like to buy for themselves. This is encouraginng the children to look at each coin and find out about it’s value as well as seeing the advantages of saving. We would like to thank The Royal Bank of Scotland for their very kind donation of the piggy banks.
