Here are some videos and activities to inspire you.
Dali really divides people- its like marmite- you will either love it or hate it!
Dali clearly had the most amazing imagination and he expresses it through art. His type of art is called Surrealism.
Find out all about him here.
Here is some of his famous pieces.
Sadly, we can’t have a class trip to Spain just at the moment so … here is a virtual tour of the Dali museum in Figueres, Spain.
On your virtual tour can you find the real car? What is inside?
What do you think of Dalí’s artwork? Is it funny, weird…scary?
Mrs Green art.
Farmer Joe :
A quick update. We face timed Joe today. He was enjoying the lovely weather, keeping busy in the fields. Small bird has grown again and is now 102 cm! On Thursday morning he had just ‘borrowed’ a brand-new tractor! He has it on demonstration for 1 week! Its massive, green, can drive itself and also has air conditioning! Can you guess how much it costs?
Here are some pictures of inside the cab and of small bird, she is the second from the right looking straight at the camera.
Enjoy! We hope you have a lovely Half term Holiday.
Mrs Lloyd & Miss Owen.
Week beginning 11th May 2020
Hello Year 6!
We hope you are well? Did you celebrate VE day? Send us any pictures you managed to take to show us what you got up to – we would love to see them!
Remember if there is anything you would like to ask us, send us or just want to say hi and have a quick chat, we have our very own email address. We miss you and it would be great to hear from you!
So, here is the home learning we would like you to complete for this week. It has been brilliant receiving emails with all the activities you have been up to related to our set tasks but it has also been super to receive questions about anything you’re having problems with!
Don’t sit and struggle – please do ask us for support!
Here are some of the pictures we were sent this week:
Time for a bit of Harry Potter
5 a day challenges
For our Home Learning this week we have decided to try out MyMaths.
We have set you some addition, subtraction, multiplication and division tasks – they will be accessible from Monday 11th until Monday 18th May. We hope you have your passwords! Remember you stuck them in your reading records? If you cannot find them email us and we will send you your log in details.
These are the first level log in details:
User name: aclestedmund
To get into your own account and the work we have set for you, you will then need your own log in details.
The tasks shouldn’t take very long but remember to make jottings if you need to. If you go to the actual lesson page too, there are some games to play if you fancy having a go at these too.
Go on, you all know you are pretty amazing with your calculation skills!
Continue with Mrs Lloyds’ challenges and also have a read of the Open Up Science Newsletter
which has more exciting Science tasks for you to have a go at!
Artist of the week: Piet Mondrian
Another artist I particularly like is this Danish artist who just loved his straight lines and bold colours. He was into his dancing too, so I like him even more! I have a mirror inspired by his work:
But I particularly love his brightly coloured pieces – especially the ones with yellow in them!
So art challenge for this week:
Find out about this brilliant artist here
Have a go at recreating his work but with a twist!! Have a look around your house or garden for items you could use instead of the obvious! So maybe instead of bold lines you could use spaghetti, wool or sticks? Instead of paint you could use your clothes, books or a towel?
I always like to have to go at the challenge myself first, so here’s my Mondrian Make Do.
What do you think? I am absolutely convinced you can do better! Do remember to ask before you ‘borrow’ anything. I made sure I ate all the cucumber, put the fruit back in the fruit bowl and gave the scourers to the next person to do the washing up! Have fun! Miss Owen
Next Tuesday (May 12th) is the 200th anniversary of the birth of Florence Nightingale and is the International Day of Nurses.
To find out more about the incredible ’lady of the lamp’ click here and explore! There are lot of fab tasks on offer for you to perhaps have a go at to celebrate her and all other fantastic nurses!
I particularly like the look of the design a medal activity.
Another brilliant opportunity to learn more about our local area. This week the focus is Trading Wherries. Lots of facts and wonderful things to have a go at!
Have a great week Year 6. We look forward to hearing from you.
Miss Owen and Mrs Lloyd
