If we add white to a colour, we can make tints.

 

Paul Klee was an artist who experimented with all different types of colour.

Paint with tints. Use an A4 piece of paper and lightly draw lines to create blocks like the image above (shade painting) Then:

  1. Paint the top strip on your paper in your chosen colour. Swish, wipe and blot your brush.
  2. Now mix some white paint in to your colour to make a tint. Notice how the paint turns lighter. Paint the next strip down in this colour.
  3. Carry on mixing a little white with your colour and painting a strip until all your strips have been painted in tints. Don’t forget to swish, wipe and blot!

Creative / Mindfulness task: Make a calming glitter Bottle

Preparation

  • Fill a bottle or jar with water, leaving 2-3 cm of space at the top.
  • Add a generous amount of glitter glue to the bottle (or a combination of PVC glue and regular glitter).
  • Seal the bottle well!

Directions

  • Shake the bottle well to mix the glitter, water and glue and repeat these words as you shake it… “Imagine that the glitter is like my thoughts when I’m stressed, mad or upset. See how they whirl around and make it really hard to see clearly? That’s why it’s so easy to make silly decisions when I’m upset because I’m not thinking clearly. Don’t worry this is normal and it happens in all of us.”
  • Now put the jar down and watch what happens when you’re still for a couple of moments. Keep watching. See how the glitter starts to settle and the water clears? Your mind works the same way. When you’re calm for a little while, your thoughts start to settle and you start to see things much clearer.”

Spring Break Challenges

Throughout the two week break please continue to work on your on-line core skills as these will be so important to you when we return to school:

  • TTRS
  • Numbots
  • Bug Club
  • Nessy

Maths:

We are going to take a break from the White Rose Hub lessons for these two weeks to allow everyone to have a break and those who didn’t start at the same time to catch up. We finished on Week 2 Lesson 4 Step 3 – Add Equal Groups. However White Rose have added some great fun maths lessons that they are updating each day to keep you going throughout the holidays if you would like to try any. Click here to try them out: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/easter-fun/

 

Science – Lost and Found - Materials

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xNgh3Q58QoI – listen to the story Lost and Found using the link to YouTube.

Look at the tasks below and select which one you would like to investigate – you can of course choose more than one if you like.

 

Before you start watch this video to ensure the children have a good understanding of what materials are: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rAkQT1IgNdU

 

Task option 1:

In the story the boy and the penguin have to travel across the sea to the South Pole. Can you investigate what materials would be suitable to make a boat out of? Could you have a go at making different boats using materials around the house and test them?

Remember:

Your boat needs to float – which materials around your house float? Which sink?

Your boat needs to be waterproof – what does this mean?

Your boat needs to hold the boy and the penguin so it needs to be strong – can you add a small weight to your boat to test it?

 

Task option 2:

Research how do penguins stay warm in the freezing weather? - Can you show your research in some way. 

Thinking about this how could the boy keep himself warm? What materials would work best? Can you design an outfit for the boy on his journey?

Draw your design and label the different materials you have used and why you have chosen them.

Spring Break

Now we have reached the Spring Break, we think everyone needs a well deserved rest (teachers, pupils and parents !!), therefore we will not be setting daily tasks on the website. However, we will set a project to complete over the two week holiday as we normally do. As with any holiday period we still expect children to access online learning at home (for help with logins etc check the info page by clicking here). Teachers will not be checking who is going on this daily but will check at the end of the two week holiday.


Please feel free to still add photographs and videos to Tapestry/Dojos as the staff would love to see what the children are getting up to and we know the home school link is now more important than ever. Staff won't be responding to these but will add them to the children's online portfolio.


Daily tasks will resume on the website on 20th April.


Mrs O'Neil Edwards will also be adding a headteacher's challenge to the website for children to work on over the two week holiday.


Have a wonderful Easter, be kind and stay safe. πŸ£πŸŒˆπŸ’–

Maths Update:

As the messages said yesterday, please do not use the Power Maths books, put them somewhere safe in your house and keep them there until the schools re-open.

 

White Rose Hub are a team of teachers and mathematicians who have for a number of years been supporting schools with planning, lesson ideas and resources of a very high standard.

 

They have just released a website to support all those children who are affected by the school closures with a daily lesson which includes:

  • A short 'teaching' video to watch first which explains the daily topic.
  • A number of activities to practice this skill and a few to challenge you further.
  • The answers for these activities which also shows how they worked out these answers.

These lessons are released every Monday and are organised by Year group (from Foundation Stage through to Year 6)

 

If you don't have printer at home, just use whatever paper you have and write the question out yourself.  Remember, it's all about having a go and doing your best, don't worry if you get stuck and don't give up because as each day goes by they will be going over the same topic / skill and you will get there πŸ‘πŸ».

 

You do not need a login or password, just click here or visit (https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/)

 

They did struggle yesterday due to the number of visitors to their site and have been working through the night to increase their capacity but if it isn't working just leave it for a while and try later.
