Thank you Hollies Pre-School in Poynton for your Hands of Friendship and the mosquito nets some of your mums and dads and teachers have bought for the children in Uganda. These photos start in the school office – my teacher friends might find it quite interesting! They loved the Friendship Tree of hands you made for them and have sent their own hands of friendship back to you. It was the first time they had ever painted! Of course we had to play the Hokey Cokey and sing the Jambo Song but they are not as good as you yet! Handa’s Surprise made them smile. They looked so shocked as all the animals stole the fruit! See you all when I get back to Poynton. Sending lots of Jambo’s from Uganda! Just click on the first photo to view.

My little pal met me in the school office every morning!
Lots of hands reaching out for friendship
The children at the Brain Trust Nursery want to be your friends too!
Hand printing is a new experience for these children
Open our fingers!
One, two, three, four, five fingers!
Wow, that’s a colourful hand!
They’re painting quicker than the teacher can help them print!
When is it my turn?
The blackboard shows they were learning about shapes before Madam Gerry turned up!
Madam Gerry says this is fun!!
They enjoyed using the crayons donated by friends and schools in the UK. Please start saving pencils, pencil crayons and was crayons for my next trip to Uganda!
A helping hand from an older school friend
Lots of Friendship Hands which will travel home with me to Poynton and then to the Hollies Pre-School. They are held down with stones in the warm breeze
Moving the heavy desks to the outside play area
Many hands make light work!
With the help of their teachers I taught them rhymes such as 5 Little Peas in a peapod pressed
One grew, two grew and so did all the rest
They grew and they grew and they did not stop
Until one day the pod went POP!
Handa’s Surprise – I don’t suppose these children have ever had a story read to them before.
Head, shoulders, knees and toes!
Hokey Cokey in the midday sun!!
You do the hokey cokey
Knees bent, arms stretched

I will bring the Hands of Friendship to the Hollies when I return to the UK
