Many children at the Orchard School find it hard to express emotions, so in this project we used clay as a way of expressing feelings. Students had no help in deciding what to put on their stones; it was completely independent.
Apart from guidance on how to form the ceramics, they completed this work on their own.
Some students find writing and spelling difficult and frustrating; it was a conscious decision to allow them to make mistakes so it is clear that the children led this project.
