In March 2021, the Nursery children took part in an exciting collaboration with MADE (formerly MCEP Manchester Education Partnership) and the Whitworth Art Gallery.  Inspired by the concept of an atelier (art studio), an idea taken from the Reggio Emilia Education Philosophy, we set out to create a space in our classroom where the children could work together to creatively experiment with materials and ideas through play.  A film maker came to film the children in action and you can watch the video below 'Boxes of Creativity.'  These resources will be on loan to schools in Manchester, however Alma Park are lucky to keep our 'boxes of creativity' full of exciting resources (as seen in the video) and we intend to continue to embed this in to our EYFS provision at school.  You can also watch the film over on the MADE website:

I hope you enjoy watching the film to celebrate a wonderful year in Nursery.

Have you all have a lovely summer break.

Warm wishes,

Mrs Hand (Art Co-ordinator)
