My son attends the University of Dundee Nursery, and invariably we get chatting about the various kinds of activities they are exploring. Following a conversation we had a few months ago, and enthusiasm expressed by our youngest campus members, Anne McIntosh, the Deputy Manager for the Nursery, decided to build on the topic of the River Tay with a group of the children. We are delighted that the project has been a catalyst for a pilot project through which the children have demonstrated wonderful artistic and literary skills! We are aiming to build on this activity and continue the collaboration.
The short film below shows some examples of the poems, artwork and stories that the children have developed about their Ties to the Tay.
