Mr Findlay-Pidcock's Challenge
Write to an elderly person who lives in a local care home. Tell them about who you are, what you like doing. Tell them about what you have been doing. If a grown up lets you, give your address so that somebody can write back to you. Maybe you could do this every week?
Watch the video above and choose a topic for you to write a piece of performance poetry about – it doesn’t need to rhyme, just tell a story which is special to you and give lots of imagery.
Personal, Social and Emotional Development
Look at the emotions in these zones – Can you identify what puts you in to each zone’s emotions and how you help yourself get back to green?
Mr Collinson's English
Rhyming / Poetry
The pupils this term have been looking at cautionary poetry. The link will take you to a website full of cautionary poems. Please may the learners read them or have them read to them depending on the pupil. Then plook for rhyming words and spot them in a sentence or at the end of the sentences.
Another activity they could do was rhyming card snap. The PDF below is cards of different rhyming words, which you can print out and cut up, and play snap with.
You can also find the matching rhyming words by presenting the word to your child and then having them choose which word rhymes with that word.
Using the same cards, you could also play a rhyming memory game by placing all the cards upside down, revealing two at a time and seeing if they rhyming and seeing who can get the most pairs of rhyming words.
This term 4H has been looking at life events. Research Martin Luther King Jnr, and then create a timeline of his key life events.
PSHCE - Enterprise and employability
In KS4, we have been studying enterprise and employability, so getting pupils ready for leaving school. We were originally going to be given £50 and we needed to plan and idea on how to make a profit.
To continue work on this a good task would be to have your child help you with weekly shops. Tell them your budget and let them help you shop.
Also you can set them a budget and put them on https://groceries.asda.com/ or https://www.tesco.com/groceries/ and have them complete a shop by adding things to your basket. These items do not need to be purchased and can then be removed.
Write a diary every day for the next coming weeks.
- The date
- What you did that day.
- Who you saw.
- How you felt.
- Draw a picture underneath what you have written if you like.
Art & Design
Surrealism and every day objects
We have been creating surreal art and adding different textures and colours to every day objects. Use every day art media to colour your chosen image, then add small objects or a different texture to your artwork. Make it look surreal – this means that it doesn’t look real! You can add a texture to the background as well. If you like, you can practice drawing different lines, shapes, simple objects and draw repeated patterns. Enjoy your art, and have a go! It’s ART, dear!
Patterns and Shapes
We have been making patterned bowls, plates, vases and platters. Choose a shape for your ceramic product. Draw on shapes in rows like the examples I have shown you.
Add lines if you like. Colour in your design for a ceramic product. Practice your ceramic skills by rolling out pastry and using kitchen tools to make patterns!
