The Self Portrait
The topic, All About Me, provides children with the opportunity to answer the all-important question “Who Am I?”. Activities as Self-Portrait, Facts About Me, My Opinions, Me Poem, My Hands Can, and Me Recipe are just a few of our planned activities for this term.
One of our favourite activities has been The Self-Portrait.
We needed several photographs of people from magazines or internet pictures, scissors, glue, card.
STEP 1: We pre-cut the body parts of the people from the magazine or internet pictures.
STEP 2: The pupils took a ‘look’ in the mirror and determined what they like best about themselves – a great exercise for building character and self-esteem!
STEP 3: The children got a piece of card and glue. They created a cubist-inspired collage by assembling and gluing eyes, noses and lips from multiple angles.
