This week, I was lucky enough to be part of Curtis Jobling’s Dubai school visits, organised by the Emirates Airline Festival of Literature.
The young children loved his readings from My Daddy and The Sheep won’t Sleep. Their teachers particularly enjoyed Old MacDonald has a Zoo.
The multi-talented Curtis Jobling is also the man behind Bob the Builder.
Here are Spud-inspired scarecrows made by the young crafty crafters. We had great fun filling plastic bottles with an assortment of beans and pulses #sneakylessonsinnutrition
Sorry Curtis – Our scarecrows have carrot noses
My youngest daughter loved the film Happy Feet, after which we read Jill Tomlinson’s ‘The Penguin who wanted to find out’. She loved the characters, and learning about how penguins look after one another and survive.
We made these penguins with plastic water bottles, cotton wool balls and a handful of bits and bobs.
