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.
