I have created a set of art activities that can be used with work undertaken in the Literacy Hour. They are designed to introduce the children to a range of tools, techniques and materials as well as to create pictures as a stimulus for storytelling and creative writing. Each activity is linked to a passage of the story to encourage children to respond imaginatively and for describing characters, settings and events. I have used this method many times in KS1 and the writing produced by the children is always remarkable!
There are 6 activities including 1 for creating a cover to create a story book.
Use the PowerPoint:
• as a starting point - images can be used to encourage descriptions and use of adjectives.
• to see list of equipment and to follow instructions for each art activity.
Follow up activities:
• The children write a passage of the story that relates to each picture (use writing sheets template if needed).
The set includes 1 x PowerPoint with introductions, list of art equipment and instructions for each art activity, planning with examples of each art work and Art Curriculum Teaching Objectives and Learning Outcomes, captions, blank writing sheet, story sequencing and story plan worksheets.
Hope that you like and find them useful. If you have any comments or recommendations to make, please do not hesitate to do so.
