Fish, Fish and More Fish!

Over the past couple of weeks children have been making fish for the wall, giving them more ownership of Fish philosophy and bringing it to the fore again. Some wonderful fish were made using colourful dyes, children referring to a book for ideas about what type of fish they would like to make. This led to lots of thinking and discussion about shape, size, colour, and the various features of the fish. This week more fish were created using sheets of under-painted paper and black felts. Some children were content just to help with the under-painting of the paper while others explored both that process and the drawing of fish and other creatures. So do check out the fish wall in the blue room. And if your child comes home with a special fish it means that they have been a kind friend and made someone's day.
