PDF | 2 pages | Years: 3 - 6

A creative getting-to-know you activity to complete in the first days of a new school year.

Use this activity to help students introduce themselves at the beginning of a new school year.

Students draw a personal coat of arms that represents their individual skills, interests and goals.

How to create a personal coat of arms

  • Explain to the students that they are going to design a personal coat of arms that reflects who they are. If possible, show the students a sample coat of arms that you have designed.
  • As a class, brainstorm some categories that each section of the coat of arms might represent e.g. personal strengths, passions and interests, goals for the future.
  • Allow the students to choose a personal coat of arms template (two are provided in the resource). You may wish to enlarge these to A3 size.
  • Once completed, encourage the students to share their personal coats of arms with the class. These could remain on display in the classroom throughout the school year.
