I sat with some children as they analysed different Picasso prints and, it seems that we are not short of astute art critics, some offering insightful observations.Being brutally honest, I have always found measuring a rather difficult concept to grasp but, had I had the opportunity to measure objects using unifix cubes, as our children in Reception have, things may have just been a little different!Miss Bridget
