All children will take part in small group, paired or one to one adult focus groups.
These activities are linked to the early years curriculum called 'Development Matters'.
An adult focus group supports children to try a slightly challenging task that they may not choose, or be able to do independently, but develops their skills, knowledge and understanding.
For example, an activity could be portrait painting.
Children love to paint, particularly turning themselves into monsters or painting make believe. However, with adult questioning, encouragement and peer discussion children are able to make closer observation of their features, make comparisons and select appropriate colours for the task at hand. For example, purple might be your favourite colour but is your hair purple? What colour do you need to choose? Is it the correct shade? How can we make it darker? lighter?
