Students choose from nine homework tasks linked with the topic, Australia. They choose at least one activity from each section (English, Creative, Investigative). Designed to be completed over a period of a half term.

For lower ability/younger children they could just paint the entire foreground black and then show the sunset by changing tones of reds, yellows and oranges. This is essentially two lessons as the tiles need to air dry first.

Leaf  Colour Similes in a Picture - Yrs2-3

Leaf Colour Similes in a Picture - Yrs2-3

Autumn leaves can be as red as juicy cherries or poisonous berries, but your children might think up completely different similes to write and colour round on the leaf. There are other colours to find comparisons for, too, and children will enjoy turning the sheet around to write along the differently angled leaves. There’s a line down the middle for description as well, and some creepy-crawlies to bring the picture alive. Older children can use the sheet as a starting point for extended similes and independent description or free-style verse.

African art - Textiles - Kente

African art - textiles Kente (interwoven strips with geometric patterning) Explains what Kente is and what each of the colours mean and what it represents. Link to a you tube video to watch first. Then there are screen shots of the video and step by step instructions in order to create their own version of kente by weaving strips of coloured paper and then wool with a thick needle. The children have to consider what colours they are going to use and what shapes to add to the piece. This could possibly be two lessons depending on how quick the children complete the activity.
