Early years clay play sessionsI seem to have spent the majority of the Autumn term whizzing up the M5 to work with the children and staff at x3 of the most creative Nursery Schools in Birmingham.

They are Washwood Heath Nursery, Brearley Nursery and Lillian De Lissa Nursery.

Although the driving is tedious at the best of times, the rewards far outweigh the time and effort it takes to get there. Here are a series of photos of clay creations made by the young and totally inspiring minds from all three settings.
