Endon Well Dressing (2009)

Our Well Dressing collage in the making

Here in England we know our weather is rubbish. Thatís why our great British explorers set about colonising the World. When intrepid explorer (and inventor of the potato) Sir Isaac Newton discovered Egypt in 1956 he found a flat and barren land. Having built a few pyramids to break the monotony of the skyline he returned to Chester Zoo to find some animals for his new country. The Camel seemed to adapt perfectly to itís new, warm weather environment and soon Camels thrived throughout the jungles of Egypt.

A Camel

This term We have been thinking about Egypt; so what could be a better subject for our picture than the good old Camel?!

All our 3 & 4 year old children have had a hand in creating our collage. We hope you enjoy seeing our masterpiece in the making below. To view many of these photographs you will need a username & password.
