Next, think about the following:

  • What is your nature? Are you calm, lively, noisy etc.?

  • What do you most enjoy doing?

  • Do you have a favourite animal? Why?

  • What is your favourite colour? Does it say something about you?

  • What would you like to do in the future?

  • Is there anything you really care about?

  • Who do you admire?

Your Task: Design a Collage(a work of art made by gluing pieces of different materials to a flat surface)

Design a collage which shows visually who you are...

You should include pictures that show your hobbies,

favourite colours and shapes, friends, family,

favourite films, food, books and much more!

You should also include anything else which

represents or symbolises who you are. For example:


A Dove

Plan your Collage:

  • What are you going to add to your collage which will tell others about you? Remember: colours, pictures, words and shapes will be used for you to both speak and write about yourself...

  • What images will you use and why?

  • Which colours and shapes and why?

  • Which words?

Telling the tale telling your own story
