This week in the messy room the children have been creating different people in their family or themselves using different materials. The children have been practising their cutting skills to cut out different materials such as, coloured paper, tissue paper, shiny paper and wool. Some children also chose to use coloured pencils and crayons to add faces. There was lots of creativity and individuality in full flow this morning.
What materials do you think you would choose to use?
“I’ve made me wearing shorts and a top.”
“That’s me, I’m wearing a hat.” “I’ve made my daddy and used lots of wool for his hair.”
“I’ve made my brother wearing a yellow top.” “Look I’ve cut my bit of wool into a smiley face for mine as I’m happy.”
“It’s me wearing a hat and a bow in my hair.”
This week the children have been talking about their own families and sharing their ideas and information with other children.
“I have one brother, one sister and mummy and daddy.”
“I live with my mummy, daddy, little brother and sometimes my grandma comes to stay.”
“My family live far away and we have to go on an aeroplane to see them.”
The children also looked at a book about families and talked with each other about the different families they could see in the pictures and linked them to their own.
“That family had 4 people in it like my family.”
“My family is small like that one as it’s just me and my mummy and daddy.”
The children enjoyed talking about their own families and hearing about others.
