Set of images of William Morris patterns - saves time sourcing them yourself. Would have been nice to include some info about William Morris, what he did, when he lived etc. This file caused my PowerPoint to crash the first two times I tried to open it - quite a bit of hassle for a resource that is a decent starting point but needs a fair bit of extra work to knock it into shape.
This provides a brief history of William Morris, the artist/designer at the forefront of the Arts and Crafts movement. An ideal subject when looking at textiles in art and design. Also an excellent cross-curricular subject linking with the Victorians in England (history).
This power point show the work of a group of children from two classes who studied William Morris and the Arts and Crafts movement in a four days project. We considered wallpaper, fabric designs and printing repeating patterns. We also looked at how the Victorians used decoration and patterns on surfaces, including china ware. We designed and made our own individual sketchbook to show our ideas and design objectives, and to present the cultural thinking at the time of the Victorians.<br />
Powerpoint showing several photos of Roman shields that I made leading into an activity where children design their own Roman shield based on certain criteria.<br />
The children went on to design their own Roman Shields and then made then with cardboard and painted them.<br />
Perfect for giving them ideas!
This 6 lesson unit comes with an editable MTP plus 6 separate lesson packs. We have endeavoured to use: new, unconventional, creative and modern ideas that will really engage children, but also use familiar materials for teachers that are common to all schools or easy to obtain. <br />
Children will build, discuss, design, plan, create and evaluate throughout, as they construct 3D models including a flint axe, a mask and a Stone Age cave. 2D art includes an impressive Skara Brae scene and a lesson full of experimentation involving studying animal fur. Every lesson has some cross-curricula elements including: reading comprehension, writing, and of course history plus they all come with a custom reflective self-evaluation sheet, all designed to perfectly compliment the new 2014 curriculum. <br />
This whole unit is easy to teach, rewarding and will provide many items that children will treasure for a long time. Adaptable for KS1.
