Look at what Hanna’s Class have been doing this week!

This week, Hanna’s class have been exploring their facial features in mirrors linked to our story, Ness the Nurse and the song, Head Shoulders Knees and Toes. The children have thoroughly enjoyed observing their faces in the mirror and some of us identified our features. We have also completed mark making on a Nurses face and displayed out art on our art display.
