Come rain or shine, the weather does not seem to bother Mr Frascina and the children of all three Reception classes. Using a plethora of colours, textures and consistencies, Mr F led a playground-wide colour mixing session. This not only linked with areas of the EYFS statement such as; expressive art and design, social skills as well as confidence but it also gave the children chance to explore a great range of vocabulary. Accompanying the children's physical actions of kicking, splashing and mixing, comments such as "adding white makes it lighter" and "mixing red and green makes purple!" confirm to the Reception teachers that the children are understanding and enjoying this activity.
