In Reception we have noticed that we have lots of artists, so with this in mind we decided to let our children experience ‘still art’.
We placed a blue vase with a bunch of daffodils on our table. We then called groups of children over and asked them why they thought we had done this.
We got some fantastic language from this, Spring, flowers, stem, petals, pollen, trumpets etc.
We asked our children to choose what colours they would need as they were going to sit, look at the vase and flowers and try and paint the vase and flowers.
We were very impressed by their artistic skills and concentration and they are now proudly displayed in our classroom.
