ART - OBSERVATIONAL DRAWING

There is some cartridge paper in your pack with a picture of a robin clipped to it. Obviously, we can't use a real robin and this little bird certainly won't stay still long enough for us to draw it. Luckily, you have a photograph.

Observe the picture closely and draw the robin. Fill your page.

"Preposition" by The Bazillions

Up, down, all around -- learn your prepositions as you sing along with The Bazillions' hit song! Find out more at http://www.thebazillions.comPreposition by ...

Today we are going to write some sentences with a prepositional opener. Look again at the beginning of the Waitrose advert. Concentrate on the images that show the shed and the woods.

 Using the shed and its surroundings  as inspiration,  complete the sentences below. Don't forget to write the date and title.

 

Using a prepositional sentence opener   (title)        

 e.g. Under a cold, wintery sky, there stood a neglected, dilapidated shed.

 

  1. Between the frosty branches 
  2. Inside an large, metal teapot
  3. Outside the derelict shed 
  4. Through the gap in the roof
  5. Into the frosty air
  6. Beyond the dense, dark forest

 

Can you think of two more sentences of your own that have a prepositional opener?

THE BIG OOPS  

Apologies everyone. Yesterday, the wrong maths video was attached. This has now been corrected. You should have been working on ' Multiplying by 10,100 and 1000'. I have updated Thursday so that all the correct resources are there for you. I am so sorry for the confusion. 

If you  have already completed 'Dividing by 10, 100 and 1000', you will be ahead in maths for next week. 

 

OPTIONAL

If you have time,  you might like to have a go at making an origami 'Flip Flap' (sometimes called a 'Fortune Teller').

However, I would like you to make a Times Table Flip Flap. 

Put four different colours on the front.

Inside write eight different numbers (less than 10)

Open up the flap and write eight different times table questions. Four from the 3x table and four from the 6x table.

 

How to play

1. Ask your partner to choose a colour. Flip flap (as shown in the video) to spell out the colour. 

2. Ask your partner to choose one of the numbers displayed. Flip flap the number chosen.

3. Ask your partner to pick one of the new numbers displayed. Lift the flap and read the question.

Can your partner answer the question correctly?
