This task is going to run all week. I would like you to choose a different skill from this menu every day. Choose something that you cannot do or something that you find a little tricky. I would love to see some photographs or videos of you practising the skills that you choose.

We will be exploring how different feelings affect us and what makes us feel this way. We will be using Expressive Arts to be creative.
