Year R continue to practise joining materials within their art lessons. Over the last two weeks, I have been shrinking each child to the size of an insect! Whilst small, the children have been imagining the exploration of strange and colourful gardens. They have considered space, shape and three-dimensional form and have pictured themselves walking through tunnels and arches.


To make their own imaginary gardens out of card and paper, the children have learnt about sticking with glue, making tabs, folding, rolling, cutting and shaping paper. They have also used tools (scissors and hole punchers).


This project is designed to encourage creativity and imagination; it was an opportunity for practising fine-motor skills (precision, dexterity, and coordination of the hands). 


I love these! Please view our gallery below:
