We have been painting lovely Autumn pictures

We used our senses to explore a variety of herbs and spices. The children helped to mix them with a variety of wonderfully warm, Autumn inspired coloured paint. The children carefully painted beautiful pictures inspired by the abundance of natural objects we had collected previously. We talked about colours, textures, shapes and lines. We have made a display in our classroom of the finished work, which still has a fabulous scent long after drying!

“This one smells so sweet!” Toby (lemon)
“This spice makes me so sneezy!” Faith (cinnamon)
“You can use these when you’re cooking a meal!” Finley
