Today in the home room we were exploring our mark making skills.
we got our trays, paper and paint all set up and decided to use the Lego blocks to print the marks and patterns they made.
We picked different shape sizes, colours and shapes of blocks.
We had lots of fun dipping our blocks into the paint, and exploring what print it would make.
When we finished using the blocks ,we then decided to use our fingers to design the rest of our picture.
We had lots of fun getting messy and mark making our block pictures.
Can you make your own block prints at home? What else can you find that you can print patterns with?
In the nursery today the children explored and developed their fine motor skills and science through colour mixing.
We were mixing colours and mark making using our fingers. ‘ It feels squishy’ ‘ I made brown by mixing red and yellow’
Making clouds of soap for bath time.
We talked about changing matter and used lots of descriptive language.
‘I like how it feels’ ‘It feels soft’ ‘It’s a bit slimy’
