The children worked in teams to create characters which were then projected using torches and a big sheet. The children really enjoyed seeing their work displayed in this way. Another time, Michael asked the children to pick two contrasting adjectives. These adjectives created the basis for a ‘tree character’ . The children had to think creatively about how they would convey their adjectives in their characters. This led to an independent piece of work, where all children drew around their hand. Again, this was the basis for another tree character They had to choose their adjectives and create their character from the outline of their hand. We added details such as branches and leaves. The children enjoyed this task as everybody’s character was different. When placed altogether, we had a wonderful, weird looking forest full of very interesting looking trees!
