This is where Art and Design teachers hang out on TES. The TES Art and Design group is the place to get lesson ideas and inspiration, to share best practice and it’s where you can get your questions answered by your peers.
Am just returning to teaching after a bit of time away and would love to incorporate the Jubilee or Olympics (pref both) into Art and D&T this term. Any ideas big or small would be greatly appreciated.
You could cosider getting your students to redesign the olympic logo (always worthy of debate!) or perhaps design and build their own version of the olympic stadium.
We have just designed our own Olympic school mascots. The children have come up with some really great ideas and given reasons as to why they've chosen the things they have.. e.g. the 5 pointed crown on his head represents the 5 golden rules..
I agree with hyperbunny..Mascots will be a good idea!
What about getting the children to design their own Olympic Medal for an Olympic sport of their choice - the children can spend time researching previous medals and then designing their own using clay or plaster! I have year 3/4 and will be incorporating athletes in motion - creating a montage and then DT to link with Olympic Torch designs and medal making!
Hope this helps!
I do have planning for this is you like??
I'm going to be getting my Art groups to make Olympic hats! They will be based on different sports, the Olympic rings, the bigger and crazier the better and we are going to parade them on our sports day!
We've got resource collections for both the Diamond Jubilee and the Olympics which could come in useful.
Diamond Jubileee collection
London 2012 collection
Just searching for some Art / DT ideas for this half term and came across your post. i'd be very grateful for yr plans too, if you don't mind! Thanks in advance! firstname.lastname@example.org
