On Friday 13 December our playgroup “Teremok” held its last meeting for the year. The children listened to the Russian folk-tale “Repka” (“Turnip”) and ate a “rainbow” of fruit made to celebrate the conclusion of the "Colours and Seasons" theme for lessons and activities during November and December. All present sang New Year songs and joined hands for a traditional round dance. Before leaving, each of the children received a small gift. This year we had three graduates: Isaac Harwood, Ruben Reynolds and Ryan Reynolds. We wish the boys success in their future studies and all the best. The first gathering of “Teremok” in 2014 will be on Friday 7 February, the first Friday of that month. We look forward to seeing you in 2014!
