Self-portrait Challenge

We are asking you to take part in our self-portrait challenge!

When creating your portrait, we want you to be as creative as you can. You may want to use feathers, pens or pencils for your drawing. Or, you may wish to use natural resources, such as sticks or leaves.

For an extra challenge, can you write your name too?

Please then bring your self-portraits into school on your first day in September.
