Last week Olsen House School in Liverpool celebrated St. George’s Day with the children and staff who are in school. It was a good opportunity to combine English and Art into a fun kinaesthetic task. The children learned about the history and then made St. George’s Day shields using mixed mediums and textures.
The children then had a discussion in groups around the design, size, proportion and the shape; they were all very proud of their shields, taking them home to show parents/ Carers.
Children and young people from diverse backgrounds come to Olsen House School because they cannot continue in mainstream education for various reasons. The school provides a safe learning environment for pupils with social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) with associated needs including deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and autism (ASC), moderate and specific learning difficulties (LD).
Great work, those shields look brilliant!
