Introduction

For my first activity I chose to do leaf printing with 3 to 4 year old children. I did this activity in the autumn because at this time the children were learning about autumn so the teacher thought it would be a good idea to do some leaf printing. The teacher had already collected some leaves so we used those for the printing. I set up the painting area by covering the table with the painting sheet and mixing the powder paints. The paints were autumn colours such as red, brown and orange. Most children were capable of listening to what they had to do without making too much mess. I did this activity in the morning with about three children at a time. We did the leaf printing in the painting area and used paints, brushes, leaves, paper and aprons. ...read more.

Middle

I didn't think this activity was too hard as they managed to create some good pictures to put up in a display. I think this activity went pretty well. However if I could change anything I would of made the paint thicker and give the children some bigger paper. For my third activity I did an activity on the theme of bears. I asked my teacher the previous week if it would be alright to do an activity on the theme of bears. The teacher said this would be fine and helped me organise it. I already had a teddy and picked 'This Is the Bear and the Scary Night' by Sarah Hayes from the selection of books the nursery had to read to the children. ...read more.

Conclusion

Most said that they were afraid of monsters at night. I wanted the children to talk about moments when they had felt afraid or lost. I also wanted them to think about what they should do if they become separated from the adults they are with while they are out. I learnt that having a physical object such as a teddy makes the story more exciting. My planning could have been a bit more organised but otherwise the activity went well. The activity was easy but the children enjoyed it while learning about new subjects. I think the activity was good as the children really enjoyed it. I would of did a follow up activity if I could change anything. An example of a follow up activity could be to ask the children to paint pictures about times they have felt sad.
