Lovely to be back at the incredibly creative early years establishment that is Brearley and Teviot Nursery School in Birmingham. I have spent the last couple of sessions working in Green & Blue rooms, introducing the children to clay and simple hand tools.
The session starts with a full sized, unopened bag of clay positioned in the middle of the table. Once the grey mass has been revealed the children work their magic, using their creativity and imagination to take the material in all kinds of directions.
Stories are told and narratives are played out with every session a unique experience. The owl (above) became a forest of lolly pops & ice creams, a mobile phone, several birthday cakes and best of all a comedy nose & moustache combo!
I love my job!
