As part of our ‘People Who Help Us’ topic the Oakwood House pre-schoolers have been enjoying reading lots of books. The particular favourite being ‘Zog and the Flying Doctors’ by Julia Donaldson. We have been talking about how Princess Pearl becomes a nurse and flies around with Zog the dragon.
The children wanted to learn how to fly and suggested we could do this on a “broomstick like a witch!”
Outside the children collected lots of sticks to make their own broomstick. They found a wide variety of sticks and measured them on their arms to see if they were long enough. The children then joined the stick (with help) together and enjoyed pretending to fly around the garden on their own broomstick.
