This week Reception had a Learning Challenge afternoon. It was inspired by the story ‘Leaf Man’ and focused around using natural resources to make art.
The children took part in activities such as creating leaf pictures, dyeing cloth using berries, leaf rubbing and making transient art using things they found outside like sticks, leaves and stones. The children were able to access as many of the activities as they wanted and then we all met back together to share our work and discuss what we had done.
Here are a small group of children dyeing cloth using berries!
