Flying Start @ Saltash Explore Russian Culture for the World Cup!

Flying Start @ Saltash have been exploring Russia, after they were drawn it out of the Flying Start World Cup sweepstake!

To join in with the World Cup, each of our nurseries have been given a country from the final 8 football teams in a Flying Start sweepstake, to explore the food and culture of!

So they kicked off by looking at Russian art… they copied some of  Wassily Kandinsky’s art, who is a Russian artist who does artwork with lots of circles!

The children used all different sized circles and different media to make their masterpieces!

Then in the true spirit of teamwork, the children all joined in together to collage a big Russian flag, for their display!

Well done Saltash!
