Close observational drawings
Talking and describing to a partner
Word bank of descriptive words generated by pupils (‘wow words’)
Poetry writing as response, shared with partner and then with someone else who chose same object/s.
Pupils engrossed by drawing
Spoke freely and animatedly re collection
Many ideas came from children including questions to follow up later
Opened up possibilities for further creative activities such as making own cups and teapots using variety of materials, learning to make tea.
More information on collection online would be useful re stars and re craftsmanship.
Would like to pursue global citizenship possibilities eg ways tea is made by different families within class / cultures represented
Perhaps have a ‘tea party’ event to encompass learning: showcase art, read poetry, invite parents/ families in.
