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! smiley

English: Picture and questions.

Look at the following picture and answer the questions below. 

 

  1. How do you think the boy is feeling in the picture?
  2. What has caused the car to stop moving?
  3. Why is he all alone and being chased by a dinosaur?
  4. Are there other dinosaurs or people close by?
  5. How will he manage to escape?
  6. If you could bring back the dinosaurs, would you?
  7. Might it be possible to bring them back one day?

 

Sentence Challenge:

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.

 

Picture Challenge:

Imagine you are in charge of designing a dinosaur theme park. Can you design a visual plan? Think carefully about making it safe for the public and the dinosaurs.

 

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!

Georges Seurat. A Sunday on La Grande Jatte. 1884-1886.

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…

 

What you will need:

  • Pencil to make a sketch with.
  • Paint, watercolours, or felt-tip pens
  • Surface to paint on- a canvas, carboard, card, or paper (you could even use the back of a cereal box.
  • Optional- Cotton swabs to make paint dots with

 

Steps to create your piece of art:

  • Start by thinking of the subject you would like to draw. You can draw anything you like: a nature scene, portrait, flowers, animals, a sunset, a piece of fruit or vegetables.
  • Sketch this out on your paper/canvas/cardboard.
  • Use cotton buds to paint in your sketch- do not mix your colours! If you need a purple car, use blue and red dots to paint the car in. Play around with colours and have fun! 😊

 

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