At Preschool we spend three weeks in the 2nd term learning about different nations and cultures.
The favourite activity, of course, is playing Red Indians. Each child makes a headband with a (hopefully) suitable ‘Red Indian’ name, which is decorated appropriately. When it is play time, headbands are proudly worn and faces are painted with ‘war paint’. Blankets draped over the triangular jungle gym make an Indian tepee and wooden blocks inside are the ‘firewood’.
Much noise comes from the camp when children take turns at being the Red Indians hunters or part of the buffalo herd!
