Working with years Reception - Year 7

As part of the local authorities Healthy Holidays scheme, I devised and ran a mindful collage workshop for some pupils and Oasis Academy. Working with 30 children with an age range of 5-12 I needed to have an activity that could be accessible to all.
For the workshop, we explored  image making thorough collage and how this process can create surrealist, dream like and funny results. As a way in we focused on faces, combining different features from magazine images, with children encouraged to work on different images for their backgrounds and then push their imaginations by introducing different objects etc.
