Good morning Kestrels and happy Wednesday! Wednesday is one of my favourite days because I get to see you guys! We will a zoom call at 2pm-I am looking forward to seeing you there! We have a picture and questions for English today, some money in Maths and a bit of pointillism for Art. I can't wait to see your creations! Have a fantastic day!
English: Picture and questions.
Look at the following picture and answer the questions below.
Can you make a list of all of the noises a T-Rex might make whilst pursuing its prey?
Can you use these words in a sentence? They are called onomatopoeia – they sound like their meaning.

Maths: Finding different combinations of coins
Task 1 - What coins could you use to make the amount shown? Can you balance these on the scales so there is the same amount of money on each side (it doesn't need to be the same coins though!)
Task 2 – Choose the correct amount of coins to make the amount. You can either circle these or draw them yourself.
Task 3 – Find 3 different ways of making the following amounts.
Topic: Art Pointillism
Pointillism is a painting technique invented by painters like George Seurat and Paul Signac. While impressionists used small dabs of paint as part of their technique, Pointillism took this to the next level using only small dots of pure colour to compose an entire painting!
We are going to have a go at making our very own pieces of art using this style of painting. You can even give it a go using felt tip pens. I have provided a video showing how to achieve this technique using cotton buds to create this effect.
Here is some inspiration and a list of what you might need and how you can start creating your painting…

Stuck for what to draw? Why not use you fovourite colouring page, then instead of colouring it in use pointilism instead!
