Rainbow houses in Nursery

In Nursery we have shared the story of Mrs Rainbow. We worked together to create our own rainbow village just like in the book. The children chose their colours thinking hard about keeping them different from their friends and carefully painted the roofs, bricks and windows. We think it looks like a wonderfully cheerful place to live, even though there is a big rain cloud in the sky!

The children were learning to retell the story with us, to choose their colours for a purpose, to explore mixing colours and making lighter and darker shades, to use a brush with control, to negotiate with their friends to share the pots and take turns and to follow simple instructions. Well done everybody!
