Art Learning

Week beginning 1st June

Your Art learning this term will be via the Oak National Academy lessons.  Please watch the lesson here: https://www.thenational.academy/year-6/foundation/texture-treasure-hunt-year-6-wk1-5

 

In this lesson, you will create a frottage patchwork from rubbings of textured objects which you find around your home. You will need a pencil and paper.  I hope you will take a picture of your rubbings and send them to: cameron@shoreham.kent.sch.uk

 

I look forward to seeing the results. 

 

Happy making!

  • Use appropriate language
  • Created atmosphere
  • Adverbials
  • Consistence tense
  • Sentences that are different lengths and start in a variety of ways (with verbs or adverbials) and often multi-clause. I include some 1, 2 or 3-word sentences (using imperatives).
  • use multi-sensory writing: I refer to touch, taste, sound, smell and sight, and express clear emotions through behaviour or action.

Good Morning Cameron Class.

You know what to do now…here are your suggestions for the day!

 

9.00am   Go onto YouTube- PE with Joe Wicks –

 

9.30- 10.30am Literacy- for today and tomorrow.

Please complete the following bitesize links before you start writing.  You could mind map ideas in your book while you are watching the clips for your own learning ( see below)

We have looked at two pictures this week to inspire use to be creative in our setting descriptions. 

Over the next two days I would like you to use one of the pictures to write a story. 

If you wanted, you could use them both!

  

Think back to the starter;

 

A minute later I was standing with my camera at the ready, peering through the hole in the fence, desperate to find out what had happened to all the things from our garden.

 

Now could you continue your story…..

 

You don’t need to use the above as a starting point.... it could be a dare that you are given to go into the garden?

 

Or you could use this picture….is is this what you see the other side????

Here is an example that you could magpie ideas from:

 

The night was still. Not a breath of wind could be felt. An eerie silence filled the warm evening air, broken only by the sound of the crow’s wings flapping as it returned to its nest with food.

 

Combined with the ghostly silhouette of the tower and the rickety pathway that led to it, the ominous silence made Lucy nervous. She felt a prickle on the back of her neck as she thought about what she might find inside the tower, and what might be lurking in the darkness around her.

 

Her heart began to thump inside her chest, seemingly matching the beat of the crow’s wings.

Lucy had always been slightly wary of crows; they had sooty, black wings, piercingly sharp beaks and menacing, staring eyes. The crow had settled down in one of the gnarled branches of a nearby tree. She thought it was watching her. Surely it wasn’t though? Crows didn’t do that. It must have been her imagination.

 

Plucking up all of her courage, she approached the stairs. They looked rotten and crumbling, as if nobody had set foot on them for years and years. The crow was still staring at her, and had tilted its head to one side as if pointing its beak towards the tower. “What was this crow up to?” she thought to herself.

 

“Are you trying to warn me about something?” she asked the crow. The crow did not respond, only shuffling its feet slightly on the branch, head still tilted to one side. She frowned. “Of course you’re not trying to warn me about something, you’re just a stupid bird.”

 

Her eyes left the crow and she ascended the first few steps on the rickety path towards the tower. “It’s just a silly bird.” Lucy muttered to herself under her breath. “Don’t be such a wimp.”

 

The crow watched as she left, and smiled. A wicked, cruel smile accompanied by a cackling laugh. “Silly, silly girl” it squawked. “I must tell the others she is coming.”

 

The crow took off into the night…

Can you continue Lucy’s story as she visits the Forbidden Tower? Where was the crow going? What would Lucy find inside?

 

Don't forget to watch the bitesize clips first- and use these to help generate your ideas.  Use Google to help give you ideas of what the scene might look like.

 

I am also attaching some knowledge organisers to help with some ideas. 

 

10.30am  – class meeting – I would really like some of your examples of writing to read out.

11.00am-   Tune into David Walliams-   https://www.worldofdavidwalliams.com/elevenses/  for a daily story.

Look at the picture...

 

 

I was puzzled. Things just kept disappearing from our garden. At first it was just small things, like my toy car, then larger things began to go missing. Dad’s lawnmower vanished. Mum’s favourite plant pot with her favourite plants in. Gone! Just gone!

A minute later I was standing with my camera at the ready, peering through the hole in the fence, desperate to find out what had happened to all the things from our garden.

 

What was on the other side?  Your task is to write a detailed description of what the boy sees on the other side of the fence.  Be as creative as you can!!

Remember to use a variety of ways to start each sentence...don’t keep saying....’ he could see’....

Think fronted adverbials!

Residential Trip 2019

Friday Update

The children had great fun - soaking Mrs Sheraton... she was wetter than the children when they went raft building and swimming in the pond!

They all slept soundly last night ~ I think everyone was asleep by 11! This is a first for a school trip... and they all had to be woken up this morning. They are now enjoying archery and abseiling before burgers for lunch and the bus ride home!

The children have been an absolute pleasure- the best group of children I have ever taken. We have absolutely loved being their leaders and are so proud of each and everyone. Every child has had a go at everything... in or out of their comfort zone! 

 

Thursday Update

We had a great afternoon yesterday, with giant swing and fencing ( think we have a couple of champions amongst us!) chicken curry or meatballs, salad, bread, apple crumble, yoghurt and fruit - we all had a good feed. Evening activity was capture the flag..,, good job they had stocked up on sweets ( vegetables in bags as they call it!) to give them energy as they continued to run around for an hour and a half.. continuously!
Then bed time... more sweets... lots of chat!!

After a relatively good nights sleep, we have had breakfast of scrambled egg, baked beans, bacon, porridge, cereals, fruit we are now taking part in canoeing and Jacobs ladder.

What amazing children we have with us- to say I am proud is an understatement!

Gaveston Hall Day 3 Update

We’re coming home.... Cameron’s coming home! .....in a couple of hours.  Everybody slept a bit better last night so the general mood is happy and excited.  This morning's activities include field zorbing and tree climbing!!! 

Gaveston Hall Day 3

Gaveston Hall Day 3 1

Gaveston Hall Day 2 

We all had a lovely lunch of sandwiches and we have been learning how to set the table and clear up after lunch.

This morning we have been body-zorbing and karting. This afternoon we have enjopyed the delights of canoeing and buggy building - then racing our vehicles.  Great fun!

Gaveston Hall Day 2 Afternoon

Gaveston Hall Day 2 Afternoon 1

Gaveston Hall Day 2

 

Not a lot of sleep was had by some people (!) but the children were in good spirits this morning regardless.  They had a hearty breakfast and set off for an exciting morning of activities.

 

Zorbing, assault courses and problem solving challenges have been the order of the day so far....

Gaveston Hall Day 2

Gaveston Hall Day 1

if you look in the distance you can see the coach arriving... the calm before the storm!!! Everyone has had a really enjoyable afternoon; the children have all learned how to make their own beds - one more skill to add to their repertoire and no excuses at home now!  At 5.00pm they were playing on the play area before tea and evening activities!

Day Three

We all had a good (ish) nights sleep, and are now packing before breakfast (what a task!!) Earlier on yesterday, one of the instructors said that her group could throw some water on her as it was so hot. The children asked me if they could 'get' me too. I said (because it was hot, a little water would have been refreshing) that they could sprinkle me a little later. The afternoon was jam-packed with activities and fun and then by evening I thought they had forgotten.... oh no.... so, a promise is a promise. At 9.15pm I was expecting a little bit of water from their water bottles - how naive! (I'm still not sure where they got them from but most of the children suddenly produced 2 full bottles of water, and obviously it was both groups by then, ready and waiting!) thankfully, Ms Corlett (my saviour) said only one bottle could be deployed!  

 

We are now about to go off to breakfast, then it is our turn for the zip wire and aeroball! We are looking forward to seeing everyone later xx

 

Day Two

After a reasonably good night's sleep the children were all bright and breezy with a good game of football going on before breakfast.  Then on to the activities.....

Mrs Sheraton said, "We have all had a great morning.  We have been rafting and playing on the giant swing and are right now in the middle of abseiling and archery.  The children are being an absolute pleasure to be with.  I am very proud of their support, manners and spirit."

 

Quotes from the children:

Ellie, "It's been absolutely fantastic."

Amy-Louise and Amy T, "It's amazing here and the staff are really friendly."

Amy T, "This has been the best experience of my life."

All children, "It's better than Bushcraft!"  "I love the giant swing."  "The cabins were nice and clean (until the boys arrived)!"  "The food is great!"

 

Day one

Everyone arrived safely and it is, of course, very hot, but plenty of water has been consumed!  Here is a taste of where the children have been this afternoon....

 

 

Quotes of the day from the children...

"It's better than I thought it would be."

"Loving it."

"So proud of Amy-Louise- her target was to get half way up the pole.... and she smashed it to the top!"

"Amy, Amy, Ellie and Millie- all made it to the top with support from each other."

"Harvey exceeded his target of half way to get to the top rung, just not quite on the pole- but so, so proud of him!"

"Jonathan exceeded his target- he struggled, but he got to the very top..... he's in one of the photos!"

Mrs Sheraton has said, " I'm impressed already with the teamwork and support the children are giving each other - without any prompting. Let's hope it stays that way! They are all looking forward to finding out what's for tea!"
