The children in Howes Road nursery class have been exploring lots of ‘Things That Go’ in their play and have been engaged in a series of art opportunities.
We have explored painting with balls of different sizes and textures on a big and small scale – a big group session where there was lots of fun throwing, dropping and rolling and as individuals where we used trays – some children chose to move the balls in the paint independently and others had lots of fun tipping the trays to make them roll.
Driving toy cars through paint and using rollers of different sizes had us working hard on controlling our hands as well as watching and tracking the movement. Toy cars on the ramps outside combined with paint was a great experiment too… ‘ready steady go’ and lots of laughter could be heard from afar!
There has been so much creativity and a lot of very active participation in these sessions as you can see from the photographs.
