On Monday 9th March the children celebrated the Hindu Holi festival of colour and throughout the nursery activities were planned to include colour exploration. Preschool learnt about the festival of colour through research on our touch and tilt table and extended this by making their own colour collage using paints and a large white sheet. The children had lots of fun making marks and splats to explore the colours mixing and the different effects caused by the different paintbrush manipulation.
