Mount Pleasant Nursery - Polaroid From UKAEA To Help Literacy Initiative
UKAEA Dounreay recently sponsored Mount Pleasant Primary School Nursery with financial assistance enabling them to purchase a Polaroid instant camera for their new early literacy initiative "Adventure Ted".  "Adventure Ted" is a teddy, complete with rucksack and pyjamas, which goes home with each child from the class in turn over the course of the season and takes part in family activities.  The child takes a photograph of one of their 'adventures' and this then becomes part of a class book or display.  It aims to encourage children to share their experiences with others orally and visually and build home/school links.  Pictured are some of the nursery children who will benefit from this new initiative.
