I am changing the order of the learning this week. Can you think why?
See if you can draw every day this week. Just spend 5 or 10 minutes sitting quietly sketching some objects in front of you. Use a pencil. look at the lines. Draw what is there.
Do you remember how we made observational drawing in class. How much you needed to concentrate and how quiet it was? Choose an object or collect a few together and try and make a pencil drawing. Start by looking carefully. Don’t worry if things are not perfect. Here are some examples from previous years:
Post the ones you like to your e-portfolio and the one you want to share to the Biggies Art Gallery.
You need to try and take as many of these photos as you can within half an hour. Spend some time planning first if you like.
- Your favourite smell.
- Make a photograph of the front of a building.
- Create a photograph that illustrations connection.
- Take a picture of anger, or something that makes you angry.
- Make a creative photo of paired opposites.
- Get closer and fill the frame.
Add your photos to a gallery on your blog. Make sure and try to add a caption. Here is mine.
Make a Fish
I know some of you have cardboard and glue sticks you could make a fish:
We have not had much of a response to the work on the Scottish Parliament. So I’ve have uploaded this NHS topic from North Lanarkshire. You could work on this over the next few weeks. Try to organise the work you do. You could make a folder or put it on your e-Portfolio and make a NHS category. There are some Social Science tasks, Health & Wellbeing ones and some Expressive Arts.
Minecraft Education Edition
Virtual Banton is coming along nicely. Well done to those involved so far. If you want to join in check in Teams for times the server is open and the join code. There is a school, houses, roads and a pub.
Health & Well Being
Think of a creative way to keep fit. What can you do differently this week. Can you make an obstacle course in your garden or a creative routine of exercises. Take photos, write a list or draw a plan.
Post to your e-Portfolio.
Choose one exercise. Do it for 5 minutes everyday. Do you get better? fed up?
If you need a book you can go to Free eBook library | Oxford Owl I have emailed you and your parents the class password.
Share a Book
Choose a book you have read during lockdown and tell us about it. Think of an interesting way to do this. You could make a comic, record your voice, create a presentation, make a movie or even write about it.
Don’t just try and do this quickly, take your time and make a really good job of it. Start one day, look at what you have done the next and see if you can make it better.
Write a recount or report. Think of something you have done since lockdown began where you have learnt something you would not have learnt in school. Here are the Features of a Good Recount.
Sumdog We are not using Sumdog very much! Might be an idea to start practising for Sumdog’s mathematics contest for North Lanarkshire which starts next Friday, May 15.
