The new Screen Printing table arrives.......

Friday 15th August.

Today there was much excitement at Kindergarten!

A big truck pulled up outside the gate, a man opened up the back and lifted a very large article up onto his shoulders.  We were impressed with his strength!
In the gate he came like the Pied Piper with a group of enthusiastic children dancing around him, "What is it?"  "What have you got?"
He came inside and placed the item down.

 Yay! it was our new Screen Printing table.

The children were eager to unwrap it so we set to work.

We used our 'team work' to pull off all the plastic.... reveal a fabulous work station!
We look forward to the children creating many more wonderful prints
 on our new table.
Monday 18th - 19th August
The new screen print table is in full many children have visited it and demonstrated their independence in using a much more child-friendly table.

Left alone Grace painted up to her elbows and announced "Princess Elsa's gloves!"

Screen printing is so much fun and allows children to express themselves in a creative way.

Wednesday 20th August

Ciara starts her day with a print.
Henry is an avid printer
He knows the steps well.  First, he writes his name on the back of the paper

Boston created a new print....

...and embellished an old.

Zane observed Boston and was eager to follow suit...

James made a print, "this is for my Mum"

Then of course, there is the embellishing....
