Are you ready to start the week with some fitness activities with Joe Wicks?
1st lesson: Numeracy
Watch the video, then download the activities and complete them. You can then check your work against the answers.
If you find the review part at the beginning of the video tricky, you can re-watch videos from Week One to help you.
2nd lesson: Literacy
Write down your first impressions, responding to the questions below:
1) What do you see? Here are sentence starters to help you:
"I notice..." "Looking closely,..." "On closer inspection, I see..."
2) What do you think?
-Do you think it is somewhere real or imagined?
3) Does it remind you of anything you have seen before?
4) What questions does it raise for you?
5)Using your knowledge of other stories, you have read, or films or television programmes you have seen, consider what kind of story this might be.
6) What predictions do you have? To help your prediction, think about:
-What do the words and images in the map suggest about what might happen in the story?
-Where do you think the story might take place?
-Who do you think the characters might be? Why?
Tomorrow, we will share the opening of the novel.
Matisse was inspired by nature, and would 'paint with scissors'- he would use scissors to cut the shapes he wanted. You can try this too!
But don't worry if you don't have scissors, many artists use careful tearing to create the shapes they want. And you don't need coloured or special paper; old newspapers, magazines or food packaging can make very interesting collages too.
You don't need to stick your collage down if you don't have glue- in fact not sticking down your shapes means that you can be more playful and keep trying out different positioning.
The artist Susan Harrold has made use of newspaper and magazine print in her collage, and has also torn paper to create shapes.
