Before the lesson
- To create a mood board
Pupils should be taught to:
- Develop their techniques, including their control and their use of materials, with creativity, experimentation and an increasing awareness of different kinds of art, craft and design
- Create sketch books to record their observations and use them to review and revisit ideas
- Improve their mastery of art and design techniques
Pupils needing extra support: Ask these children questions that will prompt them to create their mood boards:
– Is there a special place you’ve been?
– What colour are the walls of your room?
– Do you have a favourite band/ team/sport/TV programme/hobby/game/app?
Ask children to justify their mood board choices verbally, rather than in writing.
Pupils working at greater depth: Encourage children to write their words as calligrams (letter style or word shape represents the word itself).
Use a thesaurus to add synonyms to the board for words chosen.
Provide reasons as to why they have chosen the selected items on their mood boards.
