Spatial reasoning and creative story telling
The children have been taking their creative inspiration from the book Junk DNA by Care Thompson. Junk DNA is a wordless comic created from the arrangement of recycled loose parts including nuts, bolts, old scrap metal items, keys, spanners, spark plugs, light bulbs, watch parts and torn paper. The children have made imaginative pictures of their own from loose parts and told us all about the story behind them. As well as encouraging their creativity they have also applied lots of spatial reasoning skills to support their maths development.
