The Rainbow Fish!


The Sweetpeas have taken an interest in the story ‘The Rainbow Fish’. We have been reading the story, practising our colours and pointing out each time we can see the fish which the Sweetpeas found to be so much fun. We also spoke about sharing and how it is kind to share with our friends.
After reading the story as a group some of the children then sat independently looking through the pictures together. To extend the children’s learning we did some mark making using cotton balls as the fish scales. The children selected which coloured paint they would like before adding the different colours to the fish, showing good fine motor skills and great concentration throughout!
Lots of love,
Everyone at Leighs xxx
