Cameo I

Wayne, aged 6, selects a cotton reel from the box of objects in
order to tie it into his piece of cloth. Fiona, his teacher, helps
him to tie the string around it. Wayne has cerebral palsy and
needs a little help. He watches excitedly as he puts his tied
bundle into the bowl of red dye. The other children in the group
look equally fascinated. They begin to guess what will happen and
are caught up in the experience. At a nearby table Anthony
watches intently as the colours of marbling inks diffuse and
spread across the tray of water. The expression on his face
shows a sense of wonder and concentration. Anthony needs an
aid to help him hear. His deafness has enabled him to perceive
more sharply, and the visual impact of the science work has a
special meaning for him.

Cameo 2

Year 2 children have been to the Imperial War Museum at the
weekend to see the exhibition on the commemoration of D-Day.
On Monday morning they are keen to discuss this and to draw
pictures of the war in their diaries. Margaret, their teacher,
allows these ideas to be explored. Over several sessions
discussions are held about D-Day and about the Second World
War, allowing the class to reflect on whether or not diey would
have liked to have been in a war. Children's comments range
