It’s CASTLES AND MAGIC week as part of our #SENResourcesSummer (find out more about our free summer holidays activities here)
Yesterday we launched a competition for this week to win a Magformers set by making a cardboard castle. Enter on Facebook here.
Today we are showing you how you can make you very own Knight’s Shield, using some cardboard, paints, string and a few other bits and bobs. Parents/Carers (only) feel free to share photos of your shields on social media using our # #SENResourcesSummer.
