Nursery Trip to the Shoe Mender

The Field Mice have been learning about “The Elves and the Shoemaker” story and in order to reinforce their learning, they visited Mario’s Shoe Care (off Portobello Road) for the afternoon.

The children were very excited to get to see all the tools and machinery for mending and polishing shoes in Mr Osman’s shop! They even saw Miss Dianne’s boots getting a new sole put on them and being polished.

The Field Mice had lots of questions for Mr Osman, including: “Do the elves come and help you at night?”, “What’s this machine for?” and “Do you make your own shoes?”
