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.
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:
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.
Food – a Fact of Life also has lots of recipes to inspire you. Just looking makes you hungry!
You might have your own family favourite recipe that you would prefer to make. Have fun and enjoy! Bon appétit!
Art – A Sense of Place
What makes Southampton special to you? What is it like to live in Southampton? What do you know about the history of our city? Think back to your learning in Year 5 when you found out about Southampton’s history and significant events.
As it is Children’s Arts Week, we would like you to create a piece of art inspired by where you live. It could reflect your personal life and experience of the city. You might want to include photographs or even create a collage. You could use key words in your design that mean something to Southampton. You are the artists – the choice is yours. Have fun being creative!
