Art -For our 'WWW' we are learning to produce a self portrait with a background and foreground.
Over the last couple of weeks the children have been practising the different art techniques. Can you remember what they were?
line pattern shape space texture
This week I would like them to apply their techniques when they create a self portrait. The portrait must have a background and something in the foreground so that they can demonstrate their use of space. The picture can then be carefully coloured using crayons. Crayons will help the children work on the techniques of line, texture and space. Jill Murphy use Crayons to great effect in her illustrations. See below and in Tuesday's topic pencil.
Please send me a copy of the completed portraits so that I can create our own art gallery and the children can try guessing which picture belongs to which friend. If you could then send a picture of your child holding their portraits, I can create an answers gallery to see if we were correct.
Please send them to me via the puffins email before 3.15pm on Wednesday.
Thank you and have fun.

English -For our 'WWW' we are learning to produce our own non-fiction text.
I would like the children to produce a non-fiction text about St. Mary and St. Chad First school.
Last week they produced a contents page. They can use this as a starting point when trying to think about sub-headings and things to write about. If they need to research the school and the surrounding area further then please use kiddle the safe search engine for children. In the finished piece of work I would like to see:
*Beautifully written and punctuated non-fiction sentences
*Illustrations, including a labelled diagram
*A simple index
*A title page
As this is our weekly work and there is a lot to complete, it will form the English lessons for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. You may want to approach this an area at a time eg, Sub-headings and writing, labelled diagram, title page and index or start with title page and work through to index.
You can do it in the yellow books, or you may want to create a book with it own pages so that all the information is in one place.
Have fun and I look forward to seeing all your non-fiction pieces of work, by Wednesday 3.15pm please!!

ICT-Today we are learning to use word to create correctly punctuated sentences.
Last week we explored the Microsoft ‘Word’ programme. We looked at how to create text, capital letters, spaces, new lines and then as an extension how to change the font style, colour and size of the text.
Today log onto word and produce at least three, correctly punctuated sentences about how a bike works. You may copy the sentences you produced for your English work this morning or you can write some new ones. Think about how you use the keyboard to create capital letters, spaces and full stops. This is the focus of today’s lesson. If you would like to try changing the colour, size and font of your work then you can. This is not essential.
Use the prompt sheet in the topic pencil if you need to.As this is ‘Wonderful Weekly Work’ please remember to send the completed activity, via email, to Mrs Lloyd by Wednesday.
