One of this week’s tasks in Nursery was the making of Father’s Day cards, and the children put a lot of effort into producing some very attractive personalised creations. Their work was inspired by last week’s activities during which they studied different animals’ skin and fur patterns. This time focussing on snakes they produced some brilliant repeating patterns using two, three and four colours. After creating their snakeskin patterns, the children finished them with flourishes of glitter and sequins before assembling their finished cards. Last but not least, they signed their names inside, with a huge amount of concentration in evidence as they worked to hold their pens and form their letters correctly. Judging by the number of kisses, hugs and hearts in the cards, there will likely be some very happy fathers in Gloucestershire come Sunday.
Still on the animal theme, the children have also enjoyed drawing and painting pictures of animals this week. The two examples below are of a beautiful giraffe and a self-portrait with a bear.
At the time of writing the Cotswold Wildlife Park trip is in full flow. We promise and update and photos next week!
