Week 4

Self Portrait Competition

We have an exciting competition for you with a mystery prize. Can you create a self portrait? That means a picture of yourself. You can draw it (paper or computer) , paint it or create it in any other ways that you want. We are looking for likeness and creativity as well showing the WHA values. Remember to have the courage and positivity to submit your entry even if it didn't turn out exactly how you imagined it in your head. Looking in the mirror at yourself is a great place to start. Have fun!

Deadline: 4pm Friday 1st May 2020

Send a message to one of your Nursery friends. Record the message in a video and upload it to Tapestry. Add the name of the child you are sending your message to in the comments box and Miss Savage will tag the child so they can see your message. If they send one back, you’ll get tagged so you can see it.
