Art objective: To convey a message about the reducing, reusing and recycling of plastic through art.
‘if children are to see that their ideas are valued and that they are continuously being encouraged to implement them, then the classroom as a whole should reflect the work that is going on’
(Cox & Watts, 2007:99).
‘The key to successful teaching and learning with ICT lies in how the technology is used and employed, not in the teaching of technology itself’
(Williams and Easingdon, 2003: 3)
‘can help children develop skills, understanding and knowledge they would otherwise miss’
(Barnes, 2002: 179).
‘the availability of visual learning aids and making a special effort to involve all the children in creative activities’ is crucial in effective learning opportunities for these children
(Hayes in Arthur and Cremin, 2010: 21).
in this approach children had the highest levels of involvement and persistence and also tried out original and imaginative ideas
(Robson and Rowe, 2012).
'Both cooperative and collaborative learning promote the idea that learning occurs when students have opportunities to learn with and from each other, and are shown how to do so effectively. this can involve thinking and talking together, discussing ideas, analyzing and solving problem; all often without constant teacher oversight or involvement'
'At the same time, children can and do learn from non-expert, mutual peers as demonstrated in socio-cognitive theory'
Kunick and Blatchford, 2014
National Curriculum links
Geography: Links to the human aspect of geography taught at Key Stage 2, looking at the land use when focusing on land fill sites and the effect of this on the environment.
Science: The children focused on questioning and presenting findings from enquiries in the form of a newspaper articles and poetry.
Art: The children used their creativity and experimentation to increase the awareness of different kinds of art and artists.
'important for children to ask questions and challenge ideas, both to enable them to become more effective learners, but also to gain a broader and deeper understanding of complex processes'
How long does most plastic take to decompose?
A) 10 years
B) 230 years
C) 500 years
Alexander et. al. ‘suggested that cross-curricular topic work risked diluting children’s understanding of important concept areas and compromising their literacy and numeracy skills in favour of ‘contrived’ links to broad themes’
(1992, cited in Davies, 2011: 47).
