It's FREE WRITE FRIDAY!! You can write about anything you like but here are a few ideas you might like to help you.

Write a letter to the class telling sharing your thoughts and feelings about all the changes we are facing. What are your hopes and dreams for when we can all get back to school? Can you write some advice to help your friends if they are feeling sad? 

Write a story about the jungle! Who will your characters be? Describe the setting. What problem will there be? How will the problem be resolved and who will resolve it?

Choose an object in your house. Write some descriptive clues without mentioning the name of the object so it will be a bit like a riddle e.g. I am soft and cosy and I like to keep  warm. I am always with my partner and I never go outside. I am needed in the cold,winter months but in the Summer I stay away. What am I?

Please bring your wonderful writing to our Zoom meeting at 1:15 to share with everyone. I can't wait to see what you choose to write!! Ronald will be so excited!!

Art 

Today we are going to find out about the Art Movement known as ‘Pointillism’. We will be looking at the work of Georges Seurat who developed the technique in 1886.

To learn more about pointillism read the powerpoint in the resources. 

You are going to have a go at designing and making your own ‘Pointillism’ piece of art. Before you make your artwork we are going to explore the different ways in which you could create the dot effect. You might like to try out a range of resources and techniques before you decide on your final piece. Here are a few examples you might like to try:

•    Use a cotton bud dipped into paint to create the dotty effect
•    Try felt tip pens / crayons / pencil crayons / chalks. Which works best and why?
•    Make a 3d version using tiny rolled up pieces of plasticine or playdough
•    Create a collage by cutting out paper dots or use the paper circles from the hole punch!
•    Use coloured sticky dots

Try out as many different methods as you can and share your ideas on Class Dojo. Write a few sentences to evaluate the different methods you used. Use the following questions to help you?

Which method looked the most effective and why?
Which method was the easiest / trickiest to use and why?
What method will you be using for your final piece in the next art lesson? 

Next week you will be creating your masterpiece inspired by Pointillism!
