Art

Remember when you are doing art and craft activities, the end product is not important, it doesn’t matter if what you make doesn’t look like it should.  What is important is what your child does, learns and explores during the process.  Have fun, get messy and get creative.

 

We would love to see some of your creations if you are able to email them to us at school.

Activity

See Individual Learning Plans for individualised activities to work towards targets

NOTE: Finished work does not need to look like the pictures- let the children do the work! They are learning through the process and it doesn’t matter what their finished artwork looks like as long as they’ve done it as independently as possible J
