Owl Class have been exploring 3d art. We explored shredded paper, added water to make it a pulp and then blended it in the food processor. We squeezed the water out to make pulp and created a heart using a mould. Wildflower seeds were added and the heart and it was given as a present for mothers day! This has been a great way of exploring and developing hand and finger strength with different textures and consistencies of the media. A present that will grow with love!
Make a transient art picture using different media. Go on a hunt in the garden / park for natural objects, explore the different textures and put them together to make different pictures. Have a go with different household objects and items.
Sensory exploration is a great way to stretch, strengthen and extend range of arm movement. Some ideas include;
Make some playdough, explore the ingredients, encourage mixing at different stages and then play with the playdough. Try different actions to different music or you can follow (adapt) some of the videos on youtube:

Owl Class have really enjoyed immersing themselves in a day at the circus. The children have played carnival games, recreated circus acts under the classroom big top and even had a go at some circus skills.
