Topic: ‘Why should we remember the Mayans’

Jade investigation

Jade is a metamorphic rock consisting of the minerals jadeite or nephrite (although the jade in Mesoamerica only had jadeite, as nephrite is from China)

Jade was very precious to the ancient Maya people who used it to create items of jewellery and mosaic masks among other things.

Your task is to investigate just how important jade was to the ancient Maya people and create a presentation to show what you have learnt.

Can you create a jade mask?

Lesson 4: Monument

Link to open Lesson 4 (when you open this it will say Lesson 5, this is because we omitted a lesson from this website)

https://www.kapowprimary.com/subjects/art-design/upper-key-stage-2/year-5/formal-elements-architecture/lesson-5-monument/

Resources you will need

  • Drawing pencil and colouring pencils, pens or crayons
  • Paper

Introduction

What is a monument? Why are monuments made? (To remember people or events from the past). Can you think of any, for example Nelsons Column in Trafalgar Square, London.

Main Activity

You are going to design a monument. Watch the video in the lesson link above to find out about monuments and how you will design yours.

So, to recap chose one of the following to design:

  • A monument to yourself – What would you like to be remembered for? How would this structure tell people in the future about who you were? Represent aspects of your personality, like favourite things; eg: a pizza-shaped monument, images based on football, places, dancing or music and family.

OR

  • A monument to a famous person or event in history – What do you know about this person or event? Why should it/they be commemorated? What could future generations learn from them/it?​​​​​

TIPS TO GET STARTED: Note down a few key things about who or what you have chosen. Think of images, symbols and shapes that could represent these key things and include them in your design. Also, think about the shape and size of your monument, will it be tall, wide, round, simple or have many parts.

To end

Open the link below to The imperial War Museum website. It’s all about The Cenotaph memorial that was constructed after World War One and includes information about the architect and his design.

History/Geography/RE - ​​​​​​​RE Unit- Christianity Could the lord’s prayer be universal?

Today, we will be looking at the Lord’s Prayer- the special prayer that Jesus taught his disciples, the words of which can be found in the New Testament part of the Bible.

The Lord's Prayer, taught by Jesus to his friends, is the most popular Christian prayer. It was written nearly 2000 years ago, but people all over the world still say it in churches every Sunday and in schools and in their homes. The Lord’s Prayer is used all over the world and in hundreds of languages, the prayer is well known.

Prayer for Christians is all to do with a relationship with God and communicating with him.

Look through the Lord’s Prayer powerpoint.

Task:

Over the next two tasks you will be looking at the key beliefs of the Lord’s prayer. Try to answer these questions.

Why do you think that Jesus calls God ‘father’?

List the qualities of a perfect father.

"Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven".

What would you ask God to do in this world to change it?

Art - Lesson 1:  Looking Closely

Over the next few weeks, you will complete some activities that will help you to look closely at the things you are drawing.

Resources you will need:

  • Pencil or black pen -no colours
  • paper
  • an object to draw (maybe a plant, flower, trainer or shoe, pencil sharpener, mug, anything!)

Warm Up

Once you have your chosen object, take a little time to look at it - notice the shapes you can see and the different textures.

Draw your object only by looking at it and not the paper and pencil.  Keep your eyes on the object the whole time.  As your eyes move around the object try to move your pencil in the same directions.

Main Activity

You are going to make another picture of this object that will help you improve your hand eye coordination, so this time you must look back and forth between the object and your paper.

You are going to complete a continuous line drawing.  This means when you draw, your pen or pencil will stay touching the paper until you have finished your drawing.  Try to represent the textures of your object, think about the marks you might use for this but remember, don’t take your pencil off the page-It’s trickier than it sounds!

Watch the Access Art video that explains the technique.  This includes 5 minutes of music for you to time yourself as you draw.

https://www.accessart.org.uk/continuous-line-drawing-exercise/

To end

If you want to practice your hand eye coordination why not try using a continuous line to draw the room you are sat in now or someone in your home.

[NOTE: If the weblink does not work, go to www.accessart.org and in the search bar type ‘continuous line drawing exercise’. Click ion the first activity where you will see the video for today]
