An overview of the creative arts we taught in school

We decided to teach an art and a dance lesson to a mixed class of Year ones and twos. We planned our lessons around the year groups’ current topic of Jack and the Beanstalk.

lesson one art c reating a giant beanstalk
Lesson One- ArtCreating a giant beanstalk

What We Did:

The children used printing techniques and collage materials to make the giant beanstalk and individually made leaves using oil pastels and collage materials.

  • Prepared a wide range of appropriate resources
  • Set up work stations outside
  • Asked open questions
  • Used nature as a stimulus
  • Offered appropriate support as needed
  • Enabled freedom for creativity
resources used
Resources Used:
  • A1 sheets of white paper with the beanstalk outline
  • A4 sheets with leaf outline
  • Green, yellow, white and brown oils pastels
  • A variety of green paints
  • Sponges
  • Scissors
  • Textured collage materials
  • Glue
  • Aprons
  • The natural environment

A critical analysis of our lesson

What we thought went well:

  • Children were engaged in the activities
  • They enjoyed the variety of resources and opportunity to use their choice of materials
  • They were keen to share their ideas and discuss techniques with each other
  • Children took inspiration from the surrounding trees
  • Each child used their own ideas and creativity to produce an individual leaf
  • The children enjoyed the freedom of making a mess

What we would like to improve:

  • Weather appropriate resources such as heavier pots and paper weights
  • A larger space
  • A starter activity such as a discussion
  • A stimulus such as the beanstalks they have been growing

What We Did:

  • Provided theme-appropriate warm up and cool down activities
  • Enabled freedom for creativity
  • Offered opportunities for performance and peer modelling
  • Asked open question to stimulate thinking and share ideas

A critical analysis of our lesson

What we thought went well:

  • The use of growing beanstalks, the art beanstalk and nature provided appropriate stimulation
  • Initial questioning triggered thoughts, ideas and excitement
  • The warm up activity prepared children’s bodies and minds
  • The natural environments’ sounds and smells brought the theme to life
  • The opportunity to experience different roles, model individual ideas and perform to their peers
  • No set music allowed the children to create their motif within natural sounds
  • Some unexpected and inspired motifs were developed through the children’s own individual creativity

What we would like to improve:

  • More time may have allowed opportunities to include more characters
  • Pictures from various parts of the story could have been used as stimuli for group sequences
  • If we had more time and technical facilities we would have liked to film the motifs and put them together to the Jack and the Beanstalk story
