Last Friday Nursery had an opportunity to explore mark making on a large scale (a very large scale!). Often we talk about size as an abstract concept and it is vital young children explore the differences for real. The children could run up and down as they made marks or choice to focus on a smaller area.
The hall floor was covered in very long strips of paper. The paper was different colours and textures and the children had to decide whether to use crayons, pens and florescent pencils.
