Time stops for no man – not even us!
This half term, we’ll meet people from different generations to find out what life was like in the past and we’ll predict how things might change in the future. Using real portraits from the past for inspiration, we will be drawing/painting our own self-portraits. We’ll create a timeline of our lives and watch a time-lapse of human development. By taking close-up photographs, we’ll be able to create our own Andy Warhol style prints and experiment to see how photographs can be changed and enhanced. Smile, please! We’ll also create clock artwork based on the style of Salvador Dali.
At the end of the Imaginative Learning Project, we’ll make a time machine and decide if we are going to travel back to the past or to the future…
There is a wealth of knowledge about history in your own home. Why not look back at photo albums to see what your parents and grandparents looked like at your age? What clothes did they wear and what toys did they play with? You could also ask family members about their favourite memories and what school was like when they were a child. Alternatively, you could visit your local museum (virtually) to look at toys, packaging and other objects from the past.
Working together in harmony to develop confident, well-educated learners with healthy minds and bodies, who are independent, resilient, motivated and committed to lifelong learning.
