CHILDREN at a village nursery experienced life down under for Australia Day.

Clarecroft Day Nursery, in Long Buckby, celebrated Australia Day on Thursday last week.

Natasha Obee, nursery supervisor, said: “A couple of our families had been to Australia recently so there was an interest from the other kids.

“The families brought some lovely things in like boomerangs, maps and didgeridoos.

“The children had a go at some Aboriginal style art, learnt about Australian animals, and we had an Australian menu as well with damper bread, chilli beef pie, and Anzac biscuits.”

Australia Day marks the arrival of the First Fleet at Sydney Cove in 1788 and the proclamation at that time of British sovereignty.
