RE with Mrs. C!
It's Palm Sunday this coming weekend (28th March). What do you know about Palm Sunday? Find out what happened on the very first Palm Sunday - a good place to start is any of the four gospels. (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John)
Below is a clip of how to make your own Palm Cross. Try it! You can use paper as a substitute for the actual leaf.
If you have time look for other Palm Sunday crafts to do.
Science - The Human Heart
Hi Class 6,
This week we are looking at the human circulatory system, beginning with the human heart. Firstly, I would like you to use the links below to find out how our heart works. Once you've completed your research I would like you to create either a paper model, using the template below, or draw your own diagram of the heart. Once you have completed these you need to label the different parts and identify, using colour, the oxygenated and deoxygenated blood. If you really struggle with your drawing/model then there is a worksheet with a diagram on that you may label, but try to be creative and make your own so that we can add it to our art display. Enjoy finding out about the heart.
Let's revise the days of the week. Have a go at writing them and saying them. Why not write them down and write verb next to each one to say what you might do on each day. Use Google Translate to help. Remember the French don't use capital letters for the days of the week.
lundi - nager
mardi - danser
Let’s have a look at some famous art featuring daffodils. You’ll see that each art work looks completely different. There is no right or wrong way to create art: the artist is sharing with the world what they see. That’s what makes art so creative and special. You’re sharing your own view of the world. Remember this when you are painting your version of daffodils – your work will be unique to you.
The art we’re going to look at are all still life paintings. A still life painting can show man-made or natural objects, and often feature food, flowers, and other every day objects. Artists sometimes use still life to share a message about what they think is important, or to celebrate the beauty of life. They also often use still life to test out new techniques or styles of painting.
Google some other artist’s interpretations of daffodils:
Flowers in a Glass Vase by Ambrosius Bosschaert the Elder, 1614
Hand Holding Glass with Daffodil by Andy Warhol, 1957
Daffodils by Edwina Sandys, 1974
Four Flowers in Still Life by David Hockney, 1990
Bowl with Daffodils by Vincent Van Gogh, 1886
Daffodil by Ellsworth Kelly, 2004
Yellow Jonquils IV by Georgia O’Keefe, 1936
Daffodils by Berthe Morisot, 1885
Either use a real daffodil, search for a picture of one or use the one below.
What colour is it? Look carefully at the petals and trumpet to see how many different colours and shades you can see. Hold the flower up to the window and look again at the petals. If you have a patch of spring sunshine, place the daffodil there and see if the sunlight changes the colour of the flower.
What shape is it? What words would you use to describe the shape of the stem, the petals, the trumpet? Turn your daffodil around and look at it from different angles.
If you have a magnifying glass, take an even closer look at the petals of your flower. What can you see inside the trumpet?
Now to paint your still life...
You might like to sketch out your daffodil first with a pencil. You might like to just use paint.
You could experiment with the watercolours, blending your own colours.
You could paint on to dry paper, or wet the paper with water first and then add your paints on top. You’ll get a very different look, so test out both and see which version best matches your idea for your daffodil.
