Poem of the Day
This week and next we are going to pause our learning and instead look at statistics. We will be looking mainly at pictograms and bar charts. Please look at the pictures below. The first picture contains information and words that should help you in your learning for this topic.
The second picture (below) is the Discover page that we usually look at together after you have written your LO. Have a look at this and see if you can figure out the answer. Once you have done this, look at the Share page next to it to see if you were correct. Did you use the same method as the book?
The third picture (below) is your Think Together page that we normally look at in pairs or groups. Spend 5 – 10 minutes looking at this page, remember it’s not about answering all the questions, it’s about getting your brain started. You can write down as much or as little to help you. The answers for these questions are in a document below. How did you do?
This term our topic is 'Around the World.' We are going to start this topic off by researching different countries. Please watch the Loom video and look at the PowerPoint below to find out more.
Happy New Year, Blue Class!
This term our Art is linked to your Topic, Around the World. We will be looking at art from South America including the textiles and llamas of Peru but, firstly, we are off to Mexico to look at the work of Frida Kahlo and to create your own self-portrait in her style!
For this week, I would like you to really think about how to draw a face; the key words here are shape and proportion. This You Tube clip shows you clearly how to draw a realistic face – notice how the artist measures the distances between the features using his fingers. Watch the clip a couple of times and then have a go yourself – use the dotted lines to help you get the right shapes and proportions. My favourite part is how to draw a mouth!
Practise this as many times as you like; I am not expecting you to colour/paint/shade this week as this lesson is about drawing a realistic face. Have fun!!
