DO YOU THINK IT WAS PAINTED ON PAPER?
Several said no and guessed plastic, glass, wood and clay. We talked about hard shiny materials and one child nearest the label shouted copper. Three of the children knew this was metal.
Introduced the task of making a collage using different papers and cloth.
Most of the children had made a collage in the past and one child explained it very well.
What can you see?
One boy thought it was washing on a line with the sky behind. I’d never considered that idea but it’s a good one. Three others agreed but the rest thought it was a beach scene with clothes drying. We briefly discussed the absence of figures.
The children arranged a towel, costumes etc. on the floor.

Didn’t they do well!
