Making friends across the globe at Knowle Green Day Nursery
Children from Knowle Green Day Nursery in Staines were delighted to receive a special delivery, all the way from their pen pals in South Africa.
After originally starting the project to mark ‘National Make a Friend Day’, children and practitioners from the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery in Knowle Green were thrilled to receive a response, complete with written messages and pictures from the young students of Ikamva Labantu in Cape Town.
In the letters, the children’s pen pals introduced themselves and wrote of their favourite things, which included cars, toys and dogs.
Knowle Green Day Nursery Team Leader, Hannah Willis explained;
“We are so happy to have received our letters from Ikamva Labantu and can’t wait to continue this journey. This project offers so many wonderful benefits such as learning about other cultures, forming friendships and improving skills such as handwriting in readiness for school.”
