Challenge from Sir Bradley Wiggins
As you know, the Tour de France is starting with
the Grand Depart in Yorkshire in 2014, and I
think it would be great if we could have some
creative artwork along the route, just like they
do in France. You saw the Farmers moving bike
from 2011 didnt you? I think it would be a
great idea to use people, and see what words we
can spell out, and to see what pictures we can
make! I look forward to seeing what you can do,
and hopefully see you lining the route in 2014!
People and shapes
What shapes can we make with our bodies when
lying down on the floor?
Activity 2 Planning art with people
Draw stick men over the words on your activity
sheets to plan out how you would create words
that could be seen from above using people
Activity 2 Illuminating the route
  • How would you create the words below using the
    people to spell out the letters?
  • Draw people over the letters below.
  • Write down next to the word how many people this
    word has used.
