Before we go any further, I just wanted to share with you Homayra's picture from the art activity last week based on the view from a window. We think it's fantastic.
Lesson 1: Literacy
If you don’t know what these words mean, you could look them up in a dictionary (online or a book version of a dictionary).
Lesson 2: Maths
Which number between 1 and 100 has the most factors?
Which number between 1 and 100 has the least amount of factors?
Do all numbers have an even number of Factors? Explain your answer with an example.
3 Spend 15 mins at least on Times Tables Rock Stars.
It is important you watch the video lesson first and then have a go at the activities underneath the video screen as we haven't looked at factors for a while. I have added a link to the lesson PowerPoint slide below.
I have also included the answers for you to check once you've completed as much of the activity as you can do. This is a self marking activity, once you've completed the activity of course. Please let us know if you need any support with any of the activities.
Remember you can write out the activities and calculations on paper, you don't need to print them out.
Lesson 3: Art
You have been learning about the Ancient Maya civilization. Apart from designing majestic cities, being great mathematicians, designing their own form of writing and communication, they also were artists. Today we are going to be looking at and drawing Mayan Masks!
Mayan Masks were a symbol of divinity. Mayan masks had a wide variety of uses, and the importance of the masks dictated how intricate the designs on various masks were. The most sacred Mayan masks featured complex and delicate mosaics made out of jade, wood, stone, and other materials.
Take a look at this mask. Do you see faces? Animals? What colours are being used?
The Maya used masks for a variety of reasons and occasions. These included:
Other masks were designed to be worn during important events such as weddings and birth ceremonies. These masks often used heavenly beings, animals or designs for entertainment purposes. These masks used amazing designs with bright, vibrant colours painted onto wooden surfaces. What do you notice about these masks? What animals or shapes do you see? What colours?
Finally, those masks used to adorn the faces of the dead were often seen as the most sacred and therefore were the most elaborate. These masks used a mosaic patterning of the beautiful greens and blues of the Jade stone to show the close sacred connection between the people and their Gods. Can you see the intricate detail on this jade mask?

Blue Gate Fields Juniors' entry to the presentation competition was based on 'Pie in the Sky'. Children in Salma's literacy group had great fun filming it, and it is very funny! We made some amazing masks – and we had a special Book Award cake, too!
