A very wet Tuesday

Tuesday 01 October 2019

We had a great time outside in the rain today. We put our waterproof trousers and jackets on and ventured out into the very wet weather.  Children enjoyed using powder paints to mix colours on the floor; it was interesting to see the colours running together on the playground and into the puddles. They painted lots of patterns on the floor using brushes. Giant mark making is great for developing muscles in the shoulders and arms; all of which are essential for writing as children get older. (It helps that it’s fun too!)

We also spotted that our wellington boots were leaving footprints in the paint and mud.  Can you see the different shapes and patterns on the soles of the footprints we made?
