Rosettes and Challenges

Paper craft is a passion of mine - the way paper can be manipulated, transformed and altered into something new and dynamic, I always find fascinating. For this blog I want to share a project I have worked on for the past year within my commission with BEST (Basildon Education Services Trust). I was delighted when alongside delivering various projects for the Basildon Challenge, I was asked to create a rosette to record and celebrate the completion of each challenge for the schools taking part.

The Basildon Challenge started in 2011 as an annual programme of monthly challenges for pupils to complete at school, at home and in the community. The process involves motivating pupils to rise to each Challenge and show what they are capable of doing, aiming to instill a sense of pride and self-confidence in our youngsters that will help them to grow and develop as learners.

Challenges included Growing a sunflower, counting the stars, writing a letter, taking part in a debate, photographic challenge and Sing along to name but a few.
