Art and Craft with PCF 858 Kindergarten – First session (Lo3, Lo5)

LO3-Demonstrate how to initiate and plan a CAS experience

LO5-Demonstrate the skills and recognise the benefits of working collaboratively

This year I joined the Art and Crafts with PCF 858 Kindergarten service, where we provide engaging arts and crafts activities for kindergarteners every weekly visit. During our first session at school, we got to know one another a bit better, discussed the goal and purpose of the service, and began to plan future activities we would do with the kids. The first thing we did was play some ice breakers in order to get to know everyone. This allowed us to learn one another’s strengths and weaknesses which helped us decide the roles and responsibilities each of us would have. Since I already love arts and crafts, I knew that the role I would take on would be to come up with a lot of the activities and maybe demonstrate them for the kids as well. In addition, being in an arts and crafts kids service last year, I have prior experience and knowledge that I shared with the group. For instance, I told them about an arts and crafts project where not only did the kids really enjoy, but it also encouraged them to use recycled materials (where they used recycled toilet rolls to create miniature models of animals). Lastly, we began to jot down our ideas for activities on our learning action plan document as well as our goals for this service on our goal setting document.
