Break time/snack time

Exercise – e.g. mindfulness yoga, fresh air in the garden, run up and down the stairs seeing if you can get faster every time!

You need to keep your body active so that your brain can keep active too.

LO: to know how to punctuate direct speech accurately

SC1: I can punctuate direct speech correctly using inverted commas

SC1: I can use commas and capital letters accurately in direct speech

SC3: I can start a new line for each change of speaker

Watch the tutorial looking at Chapter 7 and how to accurately punctuate direct speech.


Look at the sheet: In Conversation with Mr Stink. The dialogue punctuation and layout need to be improved. Read the dialogue and edit to show what changes need to be made (including starting a new line). Lay out the dialogue with a new line for each new speaker. (Dialogue will be a focus in your own story writing to practise this carefully.) Make sure you write it out neatly, beginning new lines for each speaker change and punctuating correctly.

You choose your challenge. You can either choose one of the extracts or you can try and complete both.

Use pink pen to mark the right answers and green to correct your mistakes.

Today we will be focusing on artists who used shape in DRAWING and PAINTING.

Watch my tutorial which explains today’s learning.

Here are the links/ info I refer to, to get you started on making your choice;

See attached fact sheet 'Picasso fact sheet'

Escher – Tesselation Drawing

See attached Powerpoint

Here is the additional video to inspire you!

General example of Geometric art

TASK 1: After watching the tutorial, and browsing the clips and information, you will need to choose which artist you would like to create a fact-file about. You could just use the information provided, or you could challenge yourself by doing some further research on your chosen artist (there is lots out there!).

TASK 2: Use paint or any drawing materials (colouring pencils, sketching pencils, felt tips, markers etc.), have a go at experimenting with their style to create a piece of art that shows the use of shape or pattern. You could copy something they have done and replicate it, or just use inspiration from their work to create your own piece.
