Winter or Christmas Diorama DT Challenge

Winter or Christmas Diorama DT Challenge

A great end of term activity for the final week of term 2. I have used this challenge with various KS1 and KS2 classes. Obviously, the support varies. For younger children just creating the scene was enough and they needed more premade elements e.g. printed characters etc. For older children the Further suggestions became requirements. Children could work in pairs/groups/individually. They were great to display and get parents in too. Caution: if using school circuits you will need to brief children beforehand that they will need to dismantle that part of their diorama - this usually meant the circuitry was added to the background rather than within the display.

Art Pride Piece Bookmark (Can adapt to use in any subject)

Use these bookmarks to build confidence in your students and celebrate high quality work. -Print out a PRIDE PIECE bookmark for each of your students. (Laminate if you wish to resuse). The idea is to allow students to reflect on their work, developping self-criticality and celebrating when they complete work to a high standard.
