  • Paper (two pieces)
  • Fabric Resource Sheet

 

Last week you explored different lines, today you will use different lines and different patterns.

Warm Up

Fill a piece of paper with as many different patterns and lines you can think of. There are some examples at the top and look around the room to spot others.

Main Activity

First, take a piece of paper and fold it to make six sections.  Get a grown up to help you if you find it tricky.  You are going to fill each section with a different pattern inspired by fabric designs.

Next, look at the ‘fabric design’ resource sheet.  Take time to notice the different shapes, lines and patterns you see.  Talk about them and describe them to others.

Now, using these draw patterns of your own.  Create a different pattern in each of your six sections.  Remember you are creating your own so take parts you like from the patterns you see.

Finally, once you have finished, which of your patterns do you like best and why?

If you were designing fabric for an item of clothing which design would you choose?

To end

Some of the designs included on the fabric resource sheet are traditional African patterns.  To find out about African designs read the PowerPoint PresentationHere you will also find additional activities should you wish to complete more.

RE - Year 1 – Task 3: RE Unit - Holy books

Introduction/Discussion:

Do you have a favourite story?

What was the story about? 

What did you like about the story?

Today you will be looking at stories that can be found in the Bible called parables.

Jesus taught using parables (stories with a special meaning).  These can be found in the New Testament part of the bible. 

A parable is an imaginary story used to teach a moral lesson (for example how to treat people in need) or a spiritual lesson (for example what God is like).

The Lost Sheep is a popular parable.  In this parable Jesus is teaching that every person is important to God just like each sheep is important to the  shepherd. 

Christians believe God loves each person.  The shepherd persevered looking 
for the sheep because he loved his sheep so much.

Task:

Think of a time when you have lost something.  It could be a toy, your Mum or Dad in a supermarket, or even a tooth!  How did you feel?  How did you feel when you found it again?

Art - Year 1 - Lesson 6: My Window

Resources:

  • paper
  • pencil
  • colouring tools

Today we will use these artworks by David Hockney, who is displayed in Tate Modern, to inspire our work. Many artists are inspired by what they can see out of their window and Hockey completed many paintings and drawings of what he could see from different windows in different places.

Activity

Look out of a window at home, or in class, and draw the view.  Decide if you are going to draw the window frame as well, like Hockey.  It’s up to you.

NOTE:  If you are in a classroom with frosted windows, either;

  • Think of the view from a window at home and try to remember and draw as much as you can.  When you arrive home, look at the view - what did you remember and what did you miss; or
  • Imagine you are somewhere (jungle, Arctic, city) and draw what you think you might see.

To End

  • You could redraw the same view during a different time of the day or in different weather conditions.  Notice how the things you draw change.
  • If you have a printer, here are some colouring pages of Hockney landscapes.  Will you copy his colours or choose your own?

REYear 1 –  Task 4:  Zoroastrianism

Introduction/Discussion:

Today we are going to look at the Zoroastrian faith.

The founder of Zoroastrianism was Zoroaster, who lived in eastern ancient Iran around 1000 BC.

Zoroastrians believe in one God. The Zoroastrian god is called Ahura Mazda. The holy book of Zoroastrianism is the Zend Avesta.

Zoroastrians believe people are free to choose between good and bad, but that choosing good will lead to happiness, and that choosing bad will lead to unhappiness. So it is the best to choose good. Therefore, the motto of the religion is "Good Thoughts, Good Words, Good Deeds".

Their main temple in the UK is located in Rayners Lane, Harrow.

Have a look at the accompanying powerpoint about Zoroastrianism.

Task:

  • Write down 3 things you have learned today.
  • Write down any questions you still have about the Zoroastian faith.

Art - Lesson 7:  Take a Line for a Curvy and Straight Walk

Resources:

  • Two pieces of paper
  • Pencil
  • Colouring tools

Today we will use very different lines to create two contrasting pieces of art.  One will only use straight lines and the other only curvy.  Compare these two artworks by David Hockney and Piet Mondrian, notice how the lines different.

Activity

Artwork 1 - Curvy Line

Place your pencil somewhere on your paper.  Now move it around your paper using curvy lines and do not lift your pencil from the paper until you have finished.  You could say you are taking your pencil for a curvy, wavy walk all over your paper.  Then, fill in the sections using different colours.

Artwork 2 - Straight Line

Before you begin, decide if you would like to use a ruler or challenge yourself to try to draw lines as straight as you can without one.  When ready, draw straight lines from one side of your paper to the other - draw a mixture of vertical, horizontal, close together and further apart.

Now use only blue, red and yellow to colour some of the squares or rectangles in your artwork.

To End

  • Challenge yourself to combine these two ways of drawing on one piece of paper.
  • You can also access colouring pages of artists to use a mixture of different lines here.
