It really is amazing to see the pride children take when creating their collages. If another member of staff passes a room and asks what they are doing we often see a whole table of individuals wanting to show off their work. Friends talk to each other about what they are making and it is fun to see them copying each other for example if one of them makes a triangle they all want to!
