Oak Tree pre-schoolers in Wokingham make ‘Veggie superheroes’
Everyone is a superhero at Oak Tree Day Nursery in Wokingham where even the vegetables come with special powers thanks to parent and children crafting.
Taking home a vegetable and craft materials from the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ day nursery in Nine Mile Ride, Finchampstead, children and parent teams produced a range of ‘Superheroes’ and made up stories about their adventures.
As Jo Allen-Dann, Oak Tree Manager, explained the competition was designed to ensure that fun and learning isn’t confined to nursery and that parents have the opportunity to share in the magic staff experience every day.
“This is not only a fun activity but a great opportunity to develop creativity, imagination and fine motor skills in our children. It also inspired lots of story-telling with the children using their creations to act out superhero stories and adventures.
We were absolutely overwhelmed with the enthusiasm and quality of entries. Definitely a day to remember,” she said.
Prizes and certificates were awarded to all category winners with staff and parents picking ‘Thortato’, who has the power to summon rain clouds to water his veggie friends, as the overall winner.
