Learning Intention:To discuss the merits of living within a specific climate.
So That: I can communicate my learning in different ways.
Dear students, parents and carers,
As our half-term comes to a close, we would like students to share what they have learnt from our Geography lessons.
Please choose a country/province or city from a tropical, temperate or arctic climate zone. Using the information and geographical terminology you’ve learnt this half-term, explain to your reader why they should visit this country.
What kinds of information could we share?
You can use the information you gathered last week to help you, or you can choose a completely different place to discuss!
** Think about what makes this country so appealing! Is it the temperature? Beaches? Deserts? Vegetation? Etc.
It is a brand new week which means a brand new topic. This week we will be focusing on money and refining our knowledge so when we visit the shops we know what our change should be!
Learning Intention: To understand that money can be represented in different ways
So that I recognise the same values
– To know the value of a coin/note
– To know what ‘p’ and ‘£’ represent.
-To use the key to calculate the correct total
Introduction to the activity
Let’s recap everything we know about money. Look at the image below which shows all the different types of coins and notes that we use in the UK. For each coin/note, write the amount it represents. There are some key words to help you if you need it.
Some of these bank notes are older but still represent the same amount. To see the new banknotes click on the links below.
We hope you had a wonderful and peaceful weekend and are now ready for some more fun home school learning. This week you are going to be Creative Writers and create your own fictional story. We hope you are well, in good health and keeping safe.
Write you plans in your Blue Book as a mind map or present it using bullet points – the choice is yours
LI: To gather ideas for a story
So that I can plan a story
A beginning – what happens
A middle – the problem
An end – the solution
A setting or settings
Where the story is going to take place?.
It could be somewhere fictional or real, it could be a planet, a country, a town or a house – anywhere!
When the story is taking place?
Now? In the future? In the past?
What is going to happen?
An adventure story
A mystery story
A pirate story
Fairy tale Story
Here are some pictures to help you with your Stories ideas and you could also use them for your setting for Tuesday’s lesson. Click on the link below ‘ Pictures to Support your Ideas’:
Today we are going to look at three notable female artists. We are then going to have a go at making our own self portrait in the style of ONE of the artists.
You’ll need a mirror for today’s activity (or any way of seeing your own face!)
What Makes A Good (WMAG) portrait in the style of another artist
Drawing what you see, not what you want to see.
Copying the artist’s techniques and not just making a drawing.
Thinking about what makes the artist unique and putting that into your portrait.
First let’s look at each artist and one example of their work.
Carlile lived in the 1600s and is known as the first professional female painter.
This painting is from roughly 1650 (the exact date isn’t known) and is of Lady Dorothy Browne and Sir Thomas Browne. You can see a very strong light and shadow effect with the faces almost appearing greasy. Her subjects tend to have a bit of emotion showing on their faces.
Mary Beale is known as the first female artist to enough money to pay for her whole family after spending a life practising her painting on many of London’s most notorious people.
This painting is from 1697 and is of Nell Gwyl. Beale’s work is characterised by her use of light and shadow, with her subjects appearing three-dimensional. Her use of bold colour contrasts her models’ neutral faces.
Killigrew was born into the upper class of British society in the 1600s. She is famous for a portrait of King James II and was also a well respected poet.
Here we see a self portrait of Killigrew. Despite lacking colour it has a lot of detail (see the hair) through the use of thin and thick lines. Light and shadow are important too to emphasise the detail of her face (look at the nose and eye lids.)
Now we’d like you to have a go at sketching a self portrait of yourself in your sketch books. Choose one of the artists we have looked at and do a self portrait in their style. Think about what makes their paintings unique; how do they use light and shadow? What effects do they get out of it?
Try and have three goes at this. After each attempt, think about what you could do better, and how you could make your self portrait look as though it were made by your chosen artist!
Leave a comment telling us which artist you prefer, and why.
Write on a spare piece of paper everything that you can remember about 24 hour time (don’t worry if its not much or nothing at all!). Today we will be looking at 24 time and reading digital clocks.
Use your timeline from yesterdays lesson to help you. We’re going to draw this timeline again however after 12am instead of writing 1 o’clock P.M , 2 o’clock P.M., 3 o’clock P.M. etc.. We are going to continue counting on from 12, this is 24 hour time which is usually shown on a digital watch.
Using the example below convert these times into a 24 hour format:
1 o’clock P.M. = 13:00
2 o’clock P.M. = 14:00
3 o’clock P.M. =
Keep going until you reach 11 o’clock P.M.
IMPORTANT: Once you reach 12 o’clock again, it becomes 12 A.M. this is represented in 24 hour time as 00:00.
Use your newly written timelines to help you with Task 1.
