Half class assessment by teacher observation.
Discussion with the children – which tools/buttons have you used and why? Recording their use
and understanding of the technical vocabulary.
Children save and printout their work.
The children will work independently to demonstrate their understanding and capability to use a
range of paint program tools/buttons to complete the assessment task.

Introduction ( 10 mins)
Explain to the children that they will each be creating a portrait picture of themselves using the
paint program. Their portrait will show an emotion and all the portraits will be put together to create
a class ‘feelings’ wall display. Discuss the different feelings/emotions that they have felt e.g. happy,
sad, angry, puzzled, shocked, bored etc. LSA to write these on the interactive whiteboard. Ask the
children to facially express these emotions one after the other and to look at the child next to them
– does their face express e.g. happy? If so how?
Main activity ( 40 mins)
Pupils working individually/independently: 1st assessment cohort – all the more able pupils
Ask the children to remind you how to change the size of the tools?
The teacher will make the children aware of the support posters on the walls.

30 mins The children will individually and independently create a self-portrait picture, using the
paint program to demonstrate their understanding and capability to use a range of previously used
paint program tools. The children will decide which level of the paint program to use.

The more able children will manage independently.
Some children may need support to remind them how to operate some of the paint tools.

10 mins When they have completed their portrait picture, the children save their work.

After asking permission, the children will print out their paintings. Ask them how they will do this?

Assessment session 1: LSA will supervise/support the remainder of the class during the
assessment session. These pupils will have the opportunity to draft their portrait pictures and to
discuss with the LSA, which paint tools they could use to successfully complete the task.

Assessment session 2: LSA will supervise/support the remainder of the class during the
assessment session. Children will create warm or cool coloured pictures using pencils, crayons,
chalk. The LSA will discuss with the children warm and cool colours - cold colours are generally
considered to be in the range of blue and grey, while warm colours are those such as red, yellow
and orange. The LSA will relate the colours to how they make children feel. The children will draw
a picture to depict e.g. ‘icy day’ or ‘sitting by a bonfire’. Which method do they prefer to use and
why - computer generated graphics or hand-drawn?

Plenary ( 10 mins)
Ask the children which paint tools they used e.g. pencil tool? – put up your hand if you did and so
Who saved their work?
Who printed out their work?

Give the children lots of praise…
