Chikae, you continue to work extremely hard at school and have produced some outstanding work this week. Well done!

If you would like to challenge yourself with some new learning on multiplying decimals using a formal written method, then click here.

Writing

Today you are going to apply everything that you have learnt this week and last week into writing your own non-chronological report. On Friday, you had a go at creating a report on whatever you liked. We particularly loved reading Promise’s report on Roblox. This week, we would like you to compare your reports and see how much you have improved.

Click here to remind yourself about how apostrophes are used in contracted forms of words.

When you have watched the videos and read the information, we would like you to write 6 sentences. 3 of your sentences should include a possessive apostrophe and 3 of your sentences should include a contraction with an apostrophe.

Topic - Art

Today we are going to look at 3 famous artists, Andy Warhol, Wassily Kandinsky and Jan Van Eyk.

When painting, it can be difficult to imagine how your work can stand out from others. It can be useful to look at famous artists and get inspiration from how they achieved it. Today, we are going to look at topic, technique and style to understand how artists incorporate their personal touch within their art.

Click here to get started – watch the videos, read the information and choose one activity to complete. We would love to see your finished art work!

 

Have a fantastic day everyone!
