Term 2 Week 7 – Man Made Patterns

During this week we explored patterns made by man with particular focus on what children might create using different media.

The following are some examples you might want to experiment with your children.

Starting from the left hand side painting/drawing with cotton buds, chalk, finger painting, plate washing sponges, bottle corks and rope.

The children watched a sweet story called I ain’t gonna paint no more written by Karen Beaumont.

The children worked on a project in small groups where they painted away on cardboard sheets using different shaped stamps.

Part of these painted cardboard sheets were transformed into lovely colourful butterflies which are hanging in our class garden   :).  Other painting patterns created by the children will be transformed into little crafts which the children will bring home at end of term.

Here are some photos of the children experimenting with paint.


The words paint, led us to the first letter we worked with this week – p for paint.  You can find more information under the literacy blog.
