Pleased as punch to be back at LPS working with the children and staff in the Nursery. This is the fourth year in succession we have run the project exploring language and communication within the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) via the medium of clay. Parents and carers are also encouraged to stay and work with their children.
The sessions have proved extremely successful, growing in popularity with parents year by year. The first session this time around was no exception and we had a full house of young potters and their significant grown ups making clay pizza, cakes and pottery monsters.
Here are a few nuggets of conversation:
“my clay is cold”
“cherry pizza….I like our pizzas…..snake cherry and splat pizza”
“I’ve made a little cake…I’m going to make my big cake…..I need one more cherry….You cant eat the mud!…one cherry squished…How did you cut your cake like a pizza?”
