Over the last two weeks, Year R have continued to explore joining materials; they have considered space, shape, three-dimensional form and have been manipulating and sculpting with paper.


The children designed and made their own insect garden/playground; this links to the Year R term topic - insects. Whilst the gardens are small, the children have been imagining the exploration of these strange and colourful gardens. What would an insect find exciting?


 The children have learnt about sticking with glue, making tabs, folding (including making fans), rolling, twisting, cutting and shaping paper. They have also used tools (scissors and various hole punchers).


This project is designed: to encourage creativity and imagination; to give children an opportunity to visualise form and space; for small hands to practise fine-motor skills (precision, dexterity, and coordination of the hands). Please see the gallery below:
