After storms come rainbows at Footsteps Watermead
At Footsteps, we love to take a theme for our learning and see just how many ways we can incorporate it into our huge range of activities. As ever our amazing team of staff have come up with a whole host of ways to bring a little colour into what has been a cold and wintry week at Footsteps.
Colour is an incredible topic as there are just so many ways to explore it. Sorting, bricks/building, songs, stories and puzzles have all been part of the colourful mix over the last week as we really have gone through the entire spectrum of fun to be had.
Both inside and out, there are so many colours to be found. Of course a feature colour was white with the snow we had at the beginning of the week and the children loved playing with the coloured hoops outside which looked even more colourful against the snow. We also had lots of games using our colourful parachute – a great way to keep warm too.
As you would expect our arts and crafts played a huge part in the week. We were so proud of the children’s creativity. We did lots of painting, drawing and we have been exploring what happens when we mix two colours together, as well as making some fabulous coloured spinning wheels.
We hope to have bought some yellow sunshine into the children’s lives this week, some red love hearts, green outside space to play and that we have chased any grey clouds away in time for all the colourful adventures yet to come!
