Tuesday: Good Morning Unicorns
Mindful Hand Awareness Exercise: Grasp your hands tightly for five seconds, then release and notice how your hands feel. Keep your attention focused on the feeling for as long as you can. This is a wonderful exercise for getting out of your head and into your physical awareness.
TT Rockstars – time for you to practice your times tables. For those of you that need an extra challenge I have attached times tables worksheets below. Or have a go at the ‘144’ Challenge – I have also saved the multiplication grid for you in the documents below.
Lesson 2: Forming expressions. Please follow the link to the video for today’s lesson: https://vimeo.com/425603866
I have attached the Home learning video links for the week below and please find the worksheet for today’s lesson attached with the documents below.
Think back to the chapters you read of Wonder yesterday. Particularly pages 19-33. What new characters did we meet? Look at the PowerPoint saved at the bottom of the page for you and work through the tasks on there.
- Complete the first impressions sheet (slide 2)
- Have a go at the ‘Hot Seating’ questions, which will lead you on to the diary entry activity.
Have some time to read a book of your choice at home today – find a quiet spot where you cannot be disturbed.
I would like us all to have a go at re-creating our own ‘Wonder’ inspired portrait. If you have not yet seen it have a look online at the book front cover to see this very abstract type of self-portrait. Think back to our art lessons when Mrs Harrison taught us how to draw a face or take a photo of yourself to carefully trace the outline of your face. Try not to let your portrait be any larger than A5 in size. In terms of detail it will just be your hair line, one eye and your ears if they are not hidden by your hair. Have a look at these:
Next, take an A4 piece of paper – draw a small circle in the middle of the blank page with a pencil. Then, take a ruler and draw rays coming away from the circle. Take a look at this photo:
Once this is complete colour your rays in with felt tips, coloured pencils or paint if you can.
Finally, cut out your wonder-self-portrait and stick over the blank circle in the centre of your A4 paper (make sure it is dry first) Take a look at these:
You do not need to write anything on your portrait like you can see in the above picture – you can add to this later in the week. You will see
