Children’s Art Week

As you already know, it’s Children’s Art Week and each week has a different theme. This week, the theme is: connecting across generations.

Respond to this theme in a creative way. You might want to work with your parents to create a piece of art or send a drawing to cheer up an elderly relative. What you do is up to you. If you would like some inspiration, have a look at some of the activities suggested by Tower Bridge:

This week, we’d like you to find out about FOOD! During lockdown, more people started to make their food from scratch. Yummy!

When you think about it, there are lots of stories about food. Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and James and the Giant Peach. Many of you will have enjoyed The Very Hungry Caterpillar when you were younger. What other food related stories can you think of?

Watch the clip of Charlie when he enters the magical room where Willy Wonka makes all of his delicious sweets.

How would you feel if you were Charlie? Can you write a diary entry in role as Charlie?

Charlie experiences lots of delicious concoctions however James learns about some very unpleasant recipes in James and the Giant Peach.

james and the giant peach- have you ever seen a juicier peach ...

Using these clips for inspiration, or even other food-related stories, create a storyboard or comic strip linked to food. The food could be imaginary or real. It could even have magical powers!

What’s your favourite food? Can you create an acrostic poem for your favourite food? Think carefully about the most appropriate words to describe your food.  Here’s an acrostic poem to remind you of their features:

Acrostic Poem Examples

Illustrate your poem by drawing a sketch of your chosen food.

Food - Ready, Steady, Cook!

Keeping with the theme of food, we would like you to try and cook something at home. You do need to make sure you have permission from adults at home and only cook under supervision, making sure that you are safe. It’s over to you to rustle up a mouth-watering dish of your choice. Attached at the bottom of this page are a range of different recipe cards. For more recipe inspiration, check out BBC Food Recipes for Kids – there’s so many recipes to choose from including an easy no-yeast pizza, tuna fish cakes and soup. There’s also different collections to explore such as kid’s picnic and teatime treats.

You might have your own family favourite recipe that you would prefer to make. Have fun and enjoy! Bon appétit!

The Mayflower – Continued…

We would like you to continue with your project on The Mayflower this week. We hope that you have found this event interesting. Just think how different Southampton was 400 years ago. Here’s a reminder of the challenge we set you last week:

This year marks the 400th anniversary of the sailing of The Mayflower. The Mayflower set off for the ‘New World’ from Southampton in 1620. This week, we’d like you to discover what you can about this event. At the bottom of this page, you’ll find an activity pack to help you. You can learn about the Mayflower passengers, their perilous journey across the Atlantic Ocean and the Native Americans they met when they arrived in America. You can work through the pack in any order. There’s lots of fun activities for you to complete, including creating your own community rules and designing a Wampum belt.

The Mayflower was an important world changing event which has had both positive and negative impact. The 400th anniversary provides a moment to reflect upon this history. Mayflower 400 is an opportunity to celebrate Southampton and find out about our city’s story. Find out more by exploring these links:

Can you create an information leaflet or poster about the Mayflower?

As it’s Children’s Art Week, we’d like you to create some art inspired by The Mayflower. This could be a stormy sea scene, a sketch of the ship or a message in a bottle. What message would you like to give? If you’re feeling crafty, you could even try and make a model of the ship.
