Joint Art Project
This was the children's first week back together after the summer holiday so we decided to get them used to being together again by creating a joint piece of art work that involved them working together to share both the space on the paper and the available resources.
I provided the children with some blank paper and they each chose the colour of pen that they wanted first and found some space on the paper. They talked to each other about what they were drawing, making up stories ranging from details of their families through to wales in the sea!
After the children had finished their art work I asked if they would like to do some sticking. They worked to gather sharing one glue stick and taking it in turns through to counting out numbers of eyes and sequins.
The boys were so pleased with the end result that we are now displaying it on the wall. Within this colourful piece we have covered social skills, communicating, controlling pen grip, counting, discussing shapes, talking about the world around us and, of course, being creative!
