Have a look at this painting by Salvador Dali. Think about how he uses clocks in his painting. Are there any other artists you can find that use clocks in their paintings?
Have a try at sketching different clocks yourself by using the images attached below or any other images you like!
Once you have practiced sketching some clocks, we would like you to create your own painting with the theme of time. We are intrigued to see what you come up with!
This week, on 8th May, our country will be celebrating the 75th Anniversary of VE Day. Below is a powerpoint that will tell you all about it. Once you have read about VE day we would like you to have a go at the following activities:
Lots of people, including people in Newark, will be having a garden party on Friday to celebrate- this could be a perfect opportunity for you to display some of your work from the above activities!
We have also attached some other activities you could do to celebrate VE Day. You might even think of another way to celebrate that we haven't thought of! We can't wait to see some photos of your celebrations!
If you do have a printer, there are some good resources on this website that can be printed to help celebrate: https://www.thepurplepumpkinblog.co.uk/free-printable-ve-day-decorations/
Click on the image below for a video explaining all about VE Day. There's also some additional information below the video- on the website.
Lots of the images are from the Imperial War Museum- where we visited in September!
By clicking on the image below, you can visit another fantastic website! There are quotes from Churchill's speech on 8th May 1945, as well as a recording of part of his speech! Make sure you take a look- it is such a massive day in history! Perhaps you and your family could learn the song that the people are singing- Land of Hope and Glory (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i_ROlkMOL9s).
To continue our Science Topic, Living things and their habitats, this week we would like you to create a poster explaining the life cycle of an Amphibian. Some of you might have frogs visiting your gardens, you could take pictures of them to include in your poster!
Once you have created your poster, we would like you to compare the 3 life cycles we have looked at (Mammals, Birds and Amphibians) You could create a comparison table of similarities and differences or even write a paragraph, it's up to you!
To help with your research, we have attached a powerpoint and a poster about the life cycle of an Amphibian.
