Grade 1 Torn Tissue Me!

The grade 1’s did a self portrait each, earlier this year, and I think they are exquisite!

 There is something special about the torn tissue that allows the children to add such character to therir portraits. And one grade in poarticular had a fun time – we had been experiencing some particularly hot weather, so without thinking, I  switched the fans on high and the squeals of delight were deafening as about a squillion pieces of torn tissue paper took to the air in a whirling, swirling dancing rainbow!!!

    Dear Mrs. Menhennet and students,
    I have just been looking at your tissue self-portraits and have to say- well done on your fabulous work!
    I could even recognise some students as they looked so much like their portraits!
    I imagine that you all had a wonderful time tearing up and scrunching all that crunchy tissue paper, I know it’s one of my favourite things to do!
    I can’t wait to see what you create next!
    From Mrs Russell
