Good morning everyone!
First of all, go to the Daily Routines page to join our new P.E. teacher, Joe Wicks, who will start your day off energetically. I've heard it's a fancy dress session on Friday, so make sure you get those photos of your costumes on the blog!
I've not set an English lesson today, as I'd like you to just have some time to continue your nature diaries and daily diaries, when ever you feel like it!
So, see below for today's learning opportunities!
LO: To calculate the area of compound shapes
I'm suggesting year groups for these activities based on what is expected of the different year groups, but as always, you are free to decide where you start on your journey, through the wonderful world of Compound Area.
RE / ART
LO: To make links between the washing of the feet and what Jesus wanted to teach his disciples
1) Watch the first video for the story of Jesus washing the feet of his disciples
2) Open the PowerPoint (or PDF) and follow the instructions - the last slide has some tasks on it ...read it carefully...then...
3) ... watch the second video which will help you with one of the tasks, which are to:
4) Create a comic strip storyboard of the story (use the first video or the text in the PowerPoint to help you) - there is a sheet to print but you could also do it in your book instead
5) Complete the response task - there is a sheet provided but you can do it in your books if you can't print
6) And here is the art...look again at all of the paintings on the PowerPoint. Can you create your own piece of art, telling the story and showing the reactions of the disciples?
LO: To create your own sounds by recording, editing and playing
Below, is a PowerPoint (or PDF) which you need to follow for today's lesson. The activity sheets tell you how to use Audacity during the lesson and there are also two help sheets for you and a special guide for your parents!
Don't rush to get this done; have fun with it during the holidays. I'd love for you to send some short recordings though, maybe with your voice included, which we can save on the class web page for everyone to hear. (Make sure you say something lovely, Brunel Class!)
Something a bit different for our mindfulness session today...
I keep hearing the expression "All in this together" on the television and as a result I've had this High School Musical song in my head all week. Singing and dancing are scientifically proven to improve mood, reduce anxiety and increase happiness. So, get your family around you and join in with the song - the lyrics are on the screen - get your parents having a go at the dance, even grab those instruments if you have them, and let yourselves go!
