We have been having lots of fun practising our scissor skills this week.
We filled the water tray full of scraps of paper, fabric, ribbon and wool.
We thought carefully about the materials we used; choosing cards and papers of different thicknesses, ribbons and fabrics of different lengths as well as different types of scissors.
What are children learning?
Children shared the over sized pieces of fabric and material
They talked to each other about what they were making and helped each other to hold their scissors
Children developed their scissor skills using different pieces of material
Children talked about the size and shape of the pieces they cut
They made puppets, characters, objects and animals
Children made decisions about the type of fabric they wanted to try and cut and challenged themselves and peers
