Tuesday 21st April
Hope you had a good Monday and managed to have a productive day. Hopefully you managed to get out for some fresh air, it was a bit chilly with the breeze but at least it was sunny again. What did you get up to in your free time? I enjoyed playing junior monopoly with my little boy during our break, it’s one of his favourites and he always seems to beat me – I end up bankrupt every time!
Today’s theme for Tuesday is: ‘Tuneful Tuesday’.
Ask the people you live with what their favourite songs are and spend time listening to them. Talk about why you like the songs and how they make you all feel.
Don’t forget anything if you are unsure about anything or if there is any work you wish to share please email us.
I have also enclosed an extra activity in our resources section that you could do this week on any day. It’s an outdoor nature activity. It is purely optional but you may like to give it a go and also enjoy the fresh air whilst completing it. It’s called ‘Scavenger hunt’. Hope you like it! I’m certainly going to encourage my children to have a go at this one.
The BBC launched on Monday 20th April live lessons which can be accessed online or via iplayer or the red button. They have a week’s worth of lessons covering a variety of subjects. Each lesson has video links to watch and activities to go alongside the learning objective. Miss Barrett and I will highlight ones that are particularly useful for you to look at, and of course if there’s anything there that takes your interest feel free to explore some of the topics to extend and enrich your learning further. To access the site visit https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize
We recommend using the suggested timetable to organise your day, however if you wish to complete learning activities in a different order that’s absolutely fine. Today’s learning includes an art lesson (creative) but you may have other creative things that you may want to also include in the day.
Have a good day!
Mrs Ashby and Miss Barrett
Tuesday's Learning tasks:
1.Start your day with an Active Start, we have made lots of suggestions for you to have a go at and it would be super to continue with Pav’s challenge, as it builds up through the week.

9. ART –
Today, I would like you to open the document called, ‘Art lessons 2 to 6’ (in Resources and Web Links – see yesterday’s document) focus on the pages 15 and 16. We are learning how to create a close observational drawing using the techniques we have learned over these lessons (texture, tone and shading).
Activity: Ask an adult or older sibling to take a photograph using a smart phone or digital camera. The photograph needs to be a close up picture of your hands eg both hands clasped together, a hand holding an object such as a pen or lolly etc. Try and make the picture interesting. Then using the image, carefully sketch what you see using all the sketching techniques you have been learning.
You may want to do a pencil sketch first and then have a go using pencil crayon.
Once you have completed your sketch, look carefully to see what techniques you used.
You could create a colourful frame to go around your sketch.
I would love to see your creations, take a photo and send to the class email – we can put your examples up on our class page in the section called ‘Your Work’ which is in each week’s page.
10. Remember to build in some quiet time, creative time and outdoor time!
Have a good day!
