Mr Harvey Bear and Yang Visit Children 1st @ St. Peter and St. Paul
The children were delighted to receive a surprise visit from Mr Harvey Bear. What a wonderful start to 2019!
Mr Harvey Bear had been on his travels over Christmas around the world meeting new friends and seeing new places. He arrived back from his travels as a recycling superhero with a mission for the children! Mr Harvey Bear was feeling very sad after seeing so many poorly animals in the sea due to all the plastic that people are throwing away. He came to see the children to tell them all about it and ask them if they too could become recycling superheroes. He brought some materials to feed our recycle monsters which we have around nursery and we discussed how they could be recycled.
Mr Harvey set us some tasks, including making wind chimes during our woodland sessions and bringing in lots of items from home to recycle. All of the children made recycling badges to show Mr Harvey when he next visited that they had completed their activities. The children have a new world map in reception that they are really interested in and love seeing where Mr Harvey has been!
Mr Harvey made a return visit to nursery bringing a new friend to introduce to the children – Yang the giant panda bear. Mr Harvey Bear met Yang whilst visiting China. The children were very excited to meet him and had plenty of questions to ask about China. The children have been talking about Chinese New Year and Mr Harvey and Yang have asked the children if they could put on their own festival, including making their own costumes and finding their own music. This means that everyone has been very busy preparing for our Chinese New Year parade. In the pictures you can see the children using recycled boxes to make their dragon.
