Year 6 Clock project

OCTOBER 2016

RESEARCH COMPONENT:

  1. Using an app of your choice, explain the difference between mass produced novelty items and original, handcrafted artwork.
  2. Using your net books create:
  • A relevant heading.
  • A collage of artistic clocks – these should be limited editions or original art works (NOT mass produced novelty items). DO NOT USE GOOGLE IMAGES!!!!! You will need to research independent sites. Think about effective key words to assist your search, such as ‘handcrafted’, ‘authentic’, ‘one of a kind’ and ‘original’. Then use what you know eg does it look mass produced? If so, it probably is.
  • For each clock, list the materials it is made from, the artist or the website. I should be able to replicate your search.
  • Is there any particular story associated with each clocks production? For example, was it designed as a charity donation, for an exhibition, by a child, for display in a city or town etc?
  • Have your work checked before you print.
