Self Portraits!


Happy Friday everyone!

Recently we have been focusing on our self portraits and talking about what makes us unique. The children enjoyed looking at their reflections and talking about what makes them their own person. They talked enthusiastically about their different features in detail such as eye colour, head shape, hair colour and how they look compared to their peers. Here at Leighs we strongly believe that differences should be celebrated and we strive everyday to instils that in the children. It’s so exciting that every single person has their own individual appearance and personality!

Learning about and understanding self portraits is so important at a young age as it actively promotes self confidence and can help children to connect with each other. The children took the time to observe what they could see and strengthened their observational skills. They then used fine motor skills to copy what they saw and drew self portraits of themselves naming all of their different body parts. This was such a lovely activity to observe!

We hope you all have a lovely weekend in the sunshine!

Lots of love,

Leigh and the team xxx
