Pupils needing extra support: Provide shapes out of coloured paper to help the children consider the different shapes and colours they will need, and in what order they should layer them (for example, large oval, small brown/blue circles).
Pupils working at greater depth: Encourage pupils to use a variety of different tools to make their self-portrait more interesting. Could they also draw a picture of their friend, teacher or a family member?
