Orla

Orla is 7 years old and one of our youngest Brownies. She presented her work in a folder which she shared with us regularly. At the end of all the sessions she shared her folder with the whole group.

About Orla

We asked all the Brownies to start their folders with a short piece about themselves and their familes.

About Orla

Orla drew us a picture of herself.

Exploring Arts

We asked the Brownies what was 'Arts'. Orla did two collages to show her understanding of Arts.
