We can make patterns!

As our numeracy focus this term is patterns,  children used transient art with pom poms to copy and complete a simple pattern.

To provide challenge for the children, we introduced tweezers for them to pick up the pom poms.  This helps to develop their pincer grip and fine motor control.

”this pattern is green and pink”
”this one is quite tricky but i can do it”

”I can make this pattern, pink, yellow”

Transient Art

The children using the Art and Design area have been looking at combining  different materials to create a piece of art. We selected a variety of loose parts and the children chose which ones they wanted to use and created their own artwork in the frames.

We discussed how we can re-use the materials to make other things too!

”I can make a doggy, they have four legs”

”I’m making my daddy”

”I’m making a stick man, he has two legs and two eyes”
