What is a Role Model?

Year 1

In ‘What is a role model?’, students explored their new role as the oldest children in the school.

Over the course of this project, the students made welcome cards for their Reception buddies, designed surveys to find out more about them, created a picture frame out of wood and decorated them according to their buddy’s request! The frame was then exhibited at the Reception self-portrait exhibition with their buddy’s self-portrait. We also learnt about different artists throughout the project including, Kusama and Seurat.
