The Gallery – Self Portrait

Here I am again cherry picking from the old gallery topics provided by Sticky Fingers

This time I have chosen to look at Self Portraits and again I am using my teaching as a vehicle for this exploration. 

When I taught Year 5, as a ‘Getting to Know You’ lesson I asked the children to make a doll of themselves using lollipop sticks, googly eyes and collage materials.  They had to make the doll as a portrait of themselves, as they believe themselves to be.  Once all the dolls were made we displayed them in our classroom as a reminder of us as individuals working together as a team.  This was a great combination of DT and PSHE that was fun for all involved and a great way for me to get to know my new pupils at the start of the year.

One of the children made a doll of me, I wonder if you can spot me??
