Children enjoy lessons in self expression
Children from Holy Trinity International School in Kidderminster enjoyed enrichment lessons in self expression, basing their learning and class work on the theme of how we express ourselves.
Pupils were encouraged to discuss ideas and to work in teams, using a number of ways to express what they wanted to say. Some pupils signed a song, producing their own PowerPoint presentation, and others focused on visual art to portray emotions and the influence colour has on how people see and interpret things. The children also created face masks to depict emotion and used dance to express themselves, choreographing the majority of the moves themselves as they wanted to express happiness and energy.
Head of Holy Trinity International Prep School, Jon Brunt commented: “This activity helped the children to understand and realise how difficult it is for some people to communicate and express themselves when verbal communication isn’t an option.
"They have really enjoyed this activity and learnt valuable new skills along the way.”
