Art:

Tie-dye looks super cool, however it can be a messy process. This week we’ve found a cleaner alternative, using things we probably already have at home- baby wipes or face wipes and elastic band or hair ties! Click the link below to see how you can make tie-dye designs!

As we’ve already used fruit, and in school we used cotton buds and forks, to paint, this week we suggest using straws! If you don’t have paint at home, food colouring will just as well for this one! Check out the link below:

Life-skill Challenge!

We hope you all got on well last week sweeping the floors!

This week, as the weather is so nice, we think it would be a great idea to help out with the washing. If you have a clothes line, or a clothes horse, it would be a nice to help hanging out the clothes to dry! Make sure you peg the clothes to the line properly so they don’t blow away!

Best of luck, and as always, we’d love to see some pictures of you completing this weeks challenge!

 

We would like to wish Elisa from Ms. Carmody’s class a very happy birthday.

Keep safe and well, we hope you enjoy some of the above! Get in touch through email if you have any feedback, questions or pictures of your work.

 

Ms. Meskill, Ms. O’Grady, Ms. Carmody
