Most of the children at Washwood Heath Nursery have settled in and are enjoying the creative opportunities offered to them by the industrious staff. There is little need for the parents to stay behind now (see previous blog entry – Smooth Transition).
However, so taken by the arts and crafts based diversions laid on for them during their child’s transition to Nursery school, a hardcore group has evolved who still remain at the nursery to practice their pottery skills. So, Jon carried on working with the grown-ups making a large vase form on the potter’s wheel for the ‘gang’ to decorate.
The children in small groups and individually, came out to experience the potter’s wheel, the parents taking obvious delight in watching the youngsters feel their way around the spinning clay.
