This week all the classes will be having a teddy bears picnic as well as doing drama and dress up, so we’ll be having a lot of fun! The children will also be making worry dolls – very small and colourful dolls traditionally made in Guatemala, which the child can tell their worries to and put under their pillow before going to sleep, and according to folklore, the doll worries instead of the child who can then sleep well and wake up with their worries gone! While the child is making their worry doll we always emphasise that they should always tell their parents or teacher if they have any worries – the doll is just an extra help during the night! As well as this, we will be making cards for Father’s Day at the end of the week, so it’s going to be a busy one!!
I know a man so big and strong,

D.A.D.D.Y., D.A.D.D.Y., D.A.D.D.Y.,
And Daddy is his name-o!
