SCIENCE:

 

Hopefully, your experiments are working well with your celery so that you can understand how water is transported around a plant.  Just in case (mine is being very slow sadly!) you weren't able to do it, I have uploaded a video below which shows you what should have happened.

 

We have looked at plants for several weeks now, so this week we will start to look at our other science topic 'Animals'.   We will start this week with learning about animal nutrition.  Sorry - the powerpoint is too large so it is being emailed to you.  There is also a link to some BBC Bitesize clips to have a look at.

 

There are lots of different activities to try - you can see what nutrients the foods in your cupboards have, label the different food groups and even keep a food nutrition diary if you want to?

 

Don't forget to send me your work and photos!

 

 

***Celery experiment video - to save you waiting any longer (it does take a long time!) I have uploaded a video below to show you what will eventually happen with your celery or flower in your coloured water.  

ART:

 

This week we are going to look at our final artist: William Morris.  He was a very famous artist and used repeating patterns in a lot of his work.  He also made beautiful and intricate wallpaper.

 

Have a look at this powerpoint to find out more about him and the photos of his work.  Then have a go at some of the tasks below to create your own work based on William Morris.  Have fun and don't forget to show me what you make!

Task 1:

 

Practice repeating a pattern using this sheet.  Once you have drawn the pattern in the bow below, can you colour or paint it?  Be careful to make sure you copy the colours and patterns exactly.

Task 2:  Keep perfecting your skills with some intricate mindfulness pattern colouring.

Task 3: Have a go at creating your own repeating pattern wallpaper.  Use this template or simply divide an A4 piece of paper into squares - the more squares, the more you will need to repeat your pattern.  Remember the pattern in each square needs to be identical and use the same colours or paints to make it look really effective.

Task 4: If you are feeling really creative and your family don't mind, have a look at this video for some inspiration.  Printing is a lovely way to create a repeating pattern and you can use different fruits and vegetables.
