“Far out in the sea lived a fish, No ordinary fish
His scales shimmered with all the colours of the rainbow.”
This week in Nursery we have been exploring lots of creative ways to represent the beautiful Rainbow Fish, from play dough and handprinted fish to an outdoor collaboration.
We chalked the outline of the fish and chose to use celery to print the curvy and colourful scales. We have been using a wide variety of tools for mark-making and the celery created an interesting pattern. The children had lots of fun working together and they were very proud of their end result.
Back inside nursery we shared the story and chatted at length about all the different characters; why the Rainbow Fish didn’t want to give his scales away; and why he had changed his mind by the end of the story
