1A Lesson 3

Individual Lesson Plan Format
Lesson: Art and Design – Lesson 3
Date: ……………..
Previous Experience
Children have been introduced to ‘Scottish Culture’ through cross-curricular learning in preparation
for a whole school event on St Andrews Day – ‘A Celebration of Scotland’s Culture’
Children, in groups, have researched the origins and design of tartan and compiled a mood board and
proto-type tartan design.
Children have created a 2D image of their group tartan design using the technique of wax resist,
whilst exploring the visual elements of Art and Design and the deployment of different media tools.
Working towards outcomes of a Curriculum for Excellence/5-14 Attainment Targets
EXA 2-03a - I can create and present work that shows developing skill in using the visual elements and
EXA 2-04a - Through observing and recording from my own experiences across the curriculum, I can create
images and objects which show growing awareness and recognition of detail
Learning Intentions
Success Criteria
Children are learning to;
Children will be able to;
Build on their previous
knowledge of the visual
elements by exploration of a
wide range of media,
examining the
appropriateness of methods
and tools selected in relation
to the technique paper
Demonstrate an
understanding of the
technique of weaving,
through the adoption and
deployment of appropriate
Demonstrate an
understanding of the visual
elements, namely; Colour,
Pattern and Texture in
relation to the tartan they
have created.
Visual- Production of a
2D image of the group
tartan design
Presentation -Peer
Observation of
individually/in group
Setting the context/ Beginning the lesson (Introduction)
Revisit knowledge gained in previous lessons, and across
the curriculum, in relation to the culture of Scotland.
Introduce lesson activity – producing tartan design from
previous lesson (Lesson 1) using the technique of weaving.
Display/Provide examples of weaving and hold a short
discussion with the children to ensure they understand the
process involved.
- Do any of the children have prior knowledge of the
technique? If so can they demonstrate to the class?
- Where might we see examples of weaving?
- What types of media do we think would be used in
Stimuli (will be used
throughout lesson)
Scottish Music
Reference Books –
Tartan Patterns
Sample of Tartan –
to allow children
to examine texture
the technique of weaving?
WALT – (see LI)
Teaching the learning intentions (Development)
Introduce the technique of weaving by modelling an
example to the children.
Short class discussion on what types of media (namely
Paper) the children think would achieve the most aesthetic
and effective results when using the technique of weaving
to produce their tartan design.
Demonstrate the different types of media which can be used
for weaving – highlight the varying levels of effectiveness
for each tool – i.e;
- Sugar paper achieves a better result than tissue
paper/newsprint – why is this? Ask the children
(properties of paper/different gsm – what does this
mean, question children and explain)
- Medium thickness card achieves a better result than
cardboard – again explain the reasoning for this
- Different gsm of paper will provide different results
in the technique of wax resist.
 Formally set the activity – Children are to experiment with
different media types (namely different types/gsm of paper
 Tissue, newsprint, sugar, card, cardboard) before
selecting a combination of paper types which they feel will
produce the most effective result for weaving.
 Children to be given 5mins to experiment with different
types of media (paper types) before moving on to begin the
production of their tartan.
 Children to be advised that each person in the group will
produce an image of their group tartan. All completed work
will then be displayed in the school hall as decoration for
the whole school event; ‘A taste of Scotland’s Culture’ on
St Andrews Day
 Upon selection of their paper types the children will then
have the opportunity to decorate/colour their paper, in
accordance with their proto-type tartan design, using a
variety of media tools – crayon, oil pastels, paint, chalk,
coloured paper (if available in their chosen paper type) etc.
 Children will now move onto weave their decorated paper
together to form their tartan design.
 Upon completion/production of the tartan children will
place finished work in the drying racks which will act as a
storage facility until designs are displayed in the hall.
Examples of Weaving –
Cloth, Leafs, Roof
Building (images of)
Cardboard/ Newsprint,
paints, palettes, paint
brushes, water/water tubs,
oil pastels, crayons, chalk,
Ending the lesson (Plenary)
Review/discussion on observations noted during the activity
- What worked well, why?
- What did not work, why?
- What paper types worked most effectively
- i.e. Card/Sugar/Tissue/Newsprint/Cardboard
Completed tartan images
will be examined on
drying racks.
Peer assessment of completed tartans (this will be done
within groups  Group A will assess B and vice versa,
Group C will assess D)
Two stars and a wish will be used as an assessment strategy
