Following our PSHE learning looking at diversity the children spent some time looking closely at their faces in mirrors and noticing what made them unique.  Then they drew a self portrait. 

They took their time to try matching different colours of crayons to their own skin tone by placing them on their arms and then shading a small section of their paper to see if they felt it was a close match. Once they had checked again in the mirror they coloured in their skin. 

Their portraits are now hanging in the gallery in our classroom and it is wonderful to see all the similarities and differences we have that make us who we are.
