The young toddlers who attend Brògan Beaga in Ullapool are really getting into their food. A few of them are just beginning to explore the textures and tastes of solid foods and love the variety and the surprises that lie in store for them. Oranges after sweet red peppers, houmous after cream cheese. One loves black pepper crackers and another just can’t get enough of pomegranates.
The children all took different learning experiences from today’s activity: one spent a while exploring the texture of houmous with his hands while two wee boys delighted in the surprising way their snack looked back at them. We sang ‘Cluasan, sùilean, sròn is beul’ which helped the adults to support the children’s language learning.
