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