Website Y Kids Art Blog Free I have just started up a new blog project based on an activity I used to do at my previous school. During Guided Reading sessions I had a couple of other activities which some groups carried out whilst the others were reading. One of these was an art project in which I gave the children the title of a famous painting and asked them to create a piece of art with that title (without showing them the original). The kids loved this and it created a fantastic art gallery in our cloakroom.   @chrisleach78 @teachesict

Website - noupe.com   Logos that speak for themselves Free A creative logo design plays a vital role in portraying the brand identity of any company. It is not only the name of the company, but also the brand’s message that communicates with the customers. Therefore, you should keep in mind that it is also the logo design that makes your business memorable and distinguishes it from the rest!

It is for that reason that designers put a large amount of effort and time in designing creative and unique logo designs for their clients. In this post, we present to you some very cleverly designed logos that we hope will inspire you to try out something different! Feel free to share more interesting logos with us in the comment section below.

Design and construct 3d nets / models

For their final ICT lesson of the year, I decided to show Year 3 the fabulous 2Design and Make application on Purple Mash. This basically allows you to paint nets of 3D shapes which can be previewed on the screen and then printed out onto card to be assembled together

Reception 2DIY Jigsaws

Another nice activity I've done with reception for the last couple of years is to teach them how to create a jigsaw puzzle using 2Do It Yourself.

They already play jigsaws I've made for them on the school website and are becoming familiar with the range of painting tools that are availble in the 2Simple Software collection, so I try to give them as much independence as possible when making their jigsaws up (just giving them a quick tutorial at the start to inpsire them with some ideas).

  @simonhaughton @teachesict  
Website Y 2DIY   Reception have been creating jigsaw puzzles on the computers. They have used a program called 2DIY to create pictures that can then be turned into jigsaw puzzles. Here are some examples of the children at work.   @chrisleach78  @teachesict

Year 1 - Creating robots

This morning Year 1 used 2DIY to create robots. They began by drawing different sections of their robots such as heads, bodies, arms and legs and then dragged and dropped these sections to create different robot designs
