Nursery Africa Prints

Nursery

The Nursery children at Michael Faraday have been continuing to carry out plenty of work all based around our current class reading book of Handa’s Surprise. We have made our own selection of fruit, using a combination of paper mache and clay. We asked the children to think about the different sizes of fruit, and to try and keep our own fruit in proportion.

Another of the themes in the book is that of costume and traditional African dress. We decided that it would be a great idea to add some African prints to a white piece of material. Each child in the Nursery came up with an African design, similar to those that we have been seeing in the book. We then sketched these out, before adding some bright African colours to our pattern. This has been a great exercise in helping the Nursery children to think about other cultures, and how life might be different for other children.
