Wednesday 3rd February

Today's 'Express Yourself' activity is to have a go at origami, where you can make your own paper dog.

Origami requires patience but once completed, the sense of relief and achievement you feel is great! However, even if you aren't successful (Miss Elcoate is terrible at doing this BUT she still has a go), it helps develop your perserverance skills. 

Here is the video link of step by step instructions on how to make a paper dog: How to make a Paper Dog - Easy Origami for Kids - YouTube 


An additional activity linking with expressing yourself, is to look at the image below and use it as a discussion tool with your child. You needn't print it off and you can simply use it as a talking point, but if your child really wants to recreate this image, they can easily sketch it in their notebooks. I have also attached a word document version, if your child wanted to add a textbox in front of the mirror to add text (completely optional).
