As always I hope you're all safe and well. This week is our final week where the focus is on an individual art style; in your home learning you'll briefly be looking at Impressionism but if you have been enjoying the focus on art recently I'd encourage you to have a good at trying to recreate or create your own art in the Impressionist style or even exploring other art styles, possibly more modern styles such as Cubism, Futurism, Pop Art or Street Art.
We are right at the end of the maths curriculum now, with revision in graphs and the mean this week before we finish off the maths CGP book next week. As I've always said, it's also really important you're still reading while at home!
This week I have also included lessons looking at Morse code. In school, at this point in the year, we'd usually be revising areas of science that you have already learned about. One area we look at is how we can use electricity to send coded messages, a method that was used during World War Two to send secret messages. Though you probably can't create the circuits at home, the fun part is sending and trying to decipher (solve) the secret messages yourself, so there are lessons all about learning and using Morse code and, hopefully, sending a code to one of your friends or us at school!
Finally, just for fun, last week in school we made stop motion animations using modelling clay and I thought it may be something some of you at home would be interested in doing. I know in Year 4 you looked at stop motion, but I've included a video explaining what stop motion is here just in case you've forgotten: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wVjMFU11hVA
You can make stop motion films using toys, Lego, drawings, a coin, some food - almost anything! There are lots of apps that you can download to make your own films with including iMotion and Stop Motion, but there are absolutely loads. Just make sure you ask an adult to help you to choose the app if you'd like to have a go at making your own stop motion animated film.
Enjoy this week's work Year 6 :). I'm missing teach you all!
