Class 3

Mr Taylor will be sending children home with a unique personal code for Seesaw. This will link to their current account but most importantly it will allow children to have full access to uploading their work - pictures, text, video (just like they can in school). Please note, at home they will not be able to see anyone else's work. All Home Learning activities will take place on Seesaw - children will be able to complete this however they want to and can upload their work to Seesaw. Please log out of Seesaw and enter the private code on 'Student Log in'. A pack of work will be available alongside Quizizz, Neapod a A Chapter a Day Story. 

Dear Class 3,

 

This page is for me to post additional fun activities for you to do at home. If you send me photographs of your work, or examples of things that you have done, I will post them here so that you can see what each other is up to. Have fun, and be creative! 

 

Stay safe,

 

Miss M

Lots of children across the UK are creating pictures of rainbows, the symbol of hope, and placing these in their windows for others to see. Please do this, if you like. Be creative! We all love to see rainbows. Can you also take a photograph of your rainbow, or you with your rainbow, and send the photo to me, so that we can create a rainbow wall on our website for anyone to see. Let's make people smile!
Class 3, on the morning of the day we had to close, you did some fantastic artwork on the theme of Hope. I will be adding it to this page. What I would like you to do is to create two list poems on the theme of Fear and Hope. Each line starts the same ie Fear is … Each poem should be at least 4 lines long (but can be longer). I will add them with the photos of your art work. Class 2 have an example on Hate and Love on their page (you can do this as well, if you wish).
You might enjoy the next bit too, although I really designed it for the younger people. I think I'd have fun doing it!

Isla's stunning writing as we closed

The Blue and Green Ark

 

The Blue and Green Ark is one of my absolute favourite books. The art work is simply stunning, and the words evoke such images and emotions. The hyperlink is to the author reading his book aloud. It is 9 minutes long.

 

Usually, we try to read the book each year either in class or assembly. We talk about what the Blue and Green Ark is, and discuss the animals and plants the book mentions. If we have the opportunity, we write our own version. We haven’t had chance this year. So…

 

Maybe you would like to listen to the poem. If you have a copy of the book, you could read it too, and study the art work (the book is even better than the video for that). Perhaps you could choose a letter or two, and create your own page. Use whatever media you like – in Brian Patten’s book there are many different styles and formats. How about having a go at the whole alphabet? Don’t forget to send me photos of your work.

Book Review

 

What is your favourite book? Can you write a book review that really, really persuades me to read it?

 

Why is it so good? Why does it appeal to you? Why might I enjoy it?

 

I will post all book reviews so that your classmates will have lots of recommendations. Maybe you could include an image from the book, or draw your own front cover?

The Anti-Colouring Book

 

The Anti-Colouring Book is a book of ideas to stimulate a

picture. Each image can be used as an idea to create a larger picture of whatever size you want. I have gathered several pencil drawing images from the internet in a similar way, to start you off with an idea. See what you can create!

 

Virtual Museum Tour

 

Below are links to some of the world's museums:

 

Visit the website

Do a virtual tour

Choose an exhibit or a section of the museum

Create a presentation to tell someone about it (use an app that will send via email/dojo and upload onto the website – I can upload video using a private YouTube account. If in doubt, ask Mr T)

Line Drawings

 

The artist, Pablo Picasso, created some amazing line drawings of animals. They use only one continuous line to create an image.

Other artists have used the same technique (these are taken from the internet and are anonymous)

Again, they are created with just one continuous line.

 
   

 

This one is an abstract design, created in the same way. Sometimes, the shapes created are coloured in.

 

Have a go. You could draw a shape, an object, an animal. Or you could ‘take a line for a walk’ and see what shapes you create. Colour parts in or not – it’s up to you.

 

Don’t forget to send me your photos.
