We have enjoyed making our

We pushed matchsticks into our clay to make our hedgehogs’ spines.  They felt quite prickly!  The clay was very smooth and cold.  

 

What could we make next?

Our Elmer and Wilbur display

We used the rollerball paints to write the initial letters of our names.  We think they look brilliant!

We went on a Wilbur search in our Outdoor Area after reading the story

Elmer and Wilbur.

 

In the story Wilbur had been hiding from Elmer and was found stuck up a tree! 

The children thought the story was funny and then enjoyed making their marks on paper every time they found a picture of Wilbur in the Outdoor Area.

"I found one!" the children kept shouting.
