Hiya, hoping for some helpful ideas and/or opinions. I'm trying to get as much planning done for September as I can before the week is out, so I can get on with enjoying my hols. I'm moving into Year 5, which is my first year in that year group. To start us off, the whole school is having a focus on Roald Dahl, and I've already been thinking of some ideas for a short topic on him. I'm finding Art quite difficult, as I don't know what would be too hard or easy for Year 5. I'd appreciate any advice on what I've already planned or any more ideas! - Drawing a portrait of Roald Dahl. We would do this by using an A4 picture of Dahl and splitting it into 16 sections, with children copying section by section. Not sure how easy or hard this will be for Year 5 as I come from infants and Y3! - An alternative is to look at the drawing style of Quentin Blake, and try to draw a portrait (of Dahl of a self-portrait) in his style. Maybe paint it using watercolours. - Design and make our own Dream Jars. I think this might be too babyish for Year 5 though, I'm not sure. What do people think of the ideas so far? Any other ideas would be greatly appreciated!
