Hard and Soft Textures

The Ladybirds explored a selection of different textures in a tray. 

They compared both soft and hard textures and used language to describe them.

Practitioners modelled language such as 'hard', 'soft', 'ruff' and 'silky'. 

Marks were made in the texture using both hands and fingers. 

Meaning was given to marks made such as 'circle'.

The messy play was mixed together and the texture changed.
