The Dream Project- September 2016

One of our mini projects this year has been about ‘The Dream’! Some of our Garden Room children had the opportunity to visit ‘The Dream’. The children walked right to the top of the hill where they found the statue towering above them. The children’s faces showed that of awe and wonder as the gazed upon the structure that they had discovered. We spent the day talking about the statue, drawing pictures, taking photographs and exploring the area. The children noticed a door at the back of the statue… we wonder what might be behind the door…

When we got back to Nursery the children created their own representations of the statues using materials of their choice. Some children wanted to manipulate clay and some children chose to create box models. They looked carefully at the pictures they had taken to recreate smaller models.
