The children now know about the characteristics and properties of different seeds and how they are designed to fly. In the sessions, they conducted different experiments, and worked together to produce some fantastic art work which they can’t wait to show off to family and friends. They have learnt lots about flight, and the introduction of specific scientific vocabulary allowed the children to develop their understanding and knowledge of the world around them. From the sessions the children have gained an enthusiasm for Art, they are eager to do art. Some thought it was boring before but now they think it is great! I have also seen improved cooperation between the children in the class. For staff, the main benefit was seeing science taught in a different way which could be used in other areas of the science curriculum.
The class and staff who worked with Fiona had a fantastic experience. She has even inspired some of the children to want to become artists when they grow up, as she has the best job in the world!
