Drama/ PSHE

Re-read the book and focus on how each of the crayons feel. How would the children describe these emotions? Note down all the emotion words they can think of and discuss the difference between synonyms e.g. how does frustration differ to anger? Introduce new vocabulary e.g. Irritated and help them use it in context. Place all words in a bag/ bowl or similar and get children to choose a word and devise a short mime for their feeling and then others have to guess what the word was.

Explain that they, too, are going to liberate their crayons, to help them colour something differently. Children have to design a scene and colour everyday objects in unusual colours.

Can you create a picture that uses all of the colours in the story… just like Duncan does in the book.
