‘Wild Writing’ in the Nursery

Engaging young children in mark-making is the first step to creating confident and enthusiastic writers BUT it can often be challenging to get the boys on board!

This week we have moved the Literacy activities outside and made them as multisensory and messy as we can and the results have been fantastic.

Al the children but especially the boys enjoyed activities such as mud-painting, mark-making in wet sand, large-scale chalking, painting trees with ‘puffy’ paint and puddle-painting and even the changing weather couldn’t dampen their enthusiasm!


Some boys loved the mud more than others!
