Tall Tales and Wild Gales 6th June 2017/ Learning Team This week, our Littlesparks got lost in a magical world of fairytales and fantastical creatures. Inspired by Alec Finlay, our projects revolved around seeds, trees and storytelling, and not even Tuesday's wild weather could dampen these creative minds and spirits. What better way to shrug off the rain, than to gather around the proverbial fire and tell tales of magic bean stalks, giants and happy ever afters. Stories and art were interwoven seamlessly by the children, with every bean planted triggering thoughts of wild and wonderful worlds, and magical clay creatures emerging from small hands and big imaginations. Every artist we introduce the children to inspires wonderful work, but we never quite know what we'll get. The twist in the Alec Finlay's tale is that the children found so many links to sculptures and narratives they already knew. We can't wait for the next chapter in our Littlesparks' story...
