Thursday 25th June

Good morning everyone!

 

We have had a great week so far learning about different artists. Today you are going to learn about another artist called Edvard Munch. He painted an amazing picture called 'The Scream'.  We would like to see how you are getting on, so remember you can send us your work on our class email addresses below:

 

Miss Harcourt: falcons@knowle-plymouth.co.uk

Mrs Walters: kestrels@knowle-plymouth.co.uk

 

Enjoy!

From Miss Harcourt and Mrs Walters 😊

English:

 

Today’s English is a creative task and is based on a picture painted by Edvard Munch. Before you start, we would like you to read up on him using the weblink below so that you can find out about the difficult life he lived https://kids.kiddle.co/Edvard_Munch

 

When you have found out about him, we would like you to take a look at a video clip of Sophia and Bella talking about one of his most famous pictures ‘The Scream’.

Your task today is to write a short story about this picture. You have freedom to write any way you want but it must reflect the mood of the picture. We have added a few writing prompts below to help you if needed but if you have a better idea, then go with it!

You could…

 

  • Write the story as if you are there too, standing in front of him on the bridge at sunset.
  • You could imagine that you are the screamer – what have you seen that has scared you so much? Describe the thoughts that are running through your mind as the painting is being created.
  • What is the ghostly character is screaming about? Can he see something dangerous? Are you in danger too?
  • Who are the people behind him on the bridge? Are they following him?
  • Is he screaming at you?
  • Has he forgotten to do something important and has just remembered it?
  • What has he seen?
  • Why is he screaming?
  • Did he always look like this?
  • Is he real?
  • Where did he come from?

 

The possibilities are endless! Enjoy…

Maths

 

This week have been using formal written methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, including with real life contexts. Today we are going to review how confident you feel and use your skills to solve problems.

 

Now have a look at the main maths task below:

Now have a go at this reflection task. You will need to use your reasoning skills and think about the problem.

Now let’s explore our thinking further. Can you solve the power puzzle below?

 

What is the longest chain you can make? What is the shortest?

 

If you think you need more practise at using the written methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division then have a look at the Strengthening tasks below.

If you feel confident with using the written methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division then have a look at the Deepening tasks below.

If you want another challenge have a go at the extra mastery challenges.

Now complete your propeller board using the numbers Side A 30-90 : 81

                                                                                  Side B 10-90 : 81

 

Also remember to keep practising your times tables on TTRS.

Art: Draw the Scream by Edvard Munch

 

Take a look at the step by step video link below and see if you can draw your own Scream picture. If you don’t have the correct resources, don’t worry as it looks just as good if it’s drawn with a black biro and coloured pencils. Have a go – see how you get on!

 

https://www.google.com/search?q=how+to+draw+the+scream&rlz=1C1GCEB_enGB867GB867&oq=how+to+draw+the+scream&aqs=chrome..69i57j0l7.3401j0j9&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8&safe=active&ssui=on#kpvalbx=_-Q_hXv64IqSQ1fAPjrSBcA91

 

If you find it too challenging, we have added an outline colouring sheet; you could try tracing it onto a blank sheet of paper and then adding colour using coloured pencils or felt pens.

Reading: Please do your daily reading and record it in your reading record.  You can now also go on: https://www.myon.co.uk/login/index.html to do your online reading and quizzes too! We can see how many books you have read and how you are doing on your quizzes. So go on, let’s get reading!

 

Spellings:

Please practise your spellings daily. This week’s spellings are below. You will need to see which ones you want to work on. If you can spell all of the Year 3/4 words, then do the Year 5/6. We will be focusing on 10 spellings every week. On Friday, get someone at home to do your spelling test with you!
