Week 13- commencing 6th July

Monday 6th July

The summer holidays are nearly upon us, and for some of us, that would mean going on a holiday. However, you may have had a holiday booked for this summer that has unfortunately had to be cancelled due to Covid-19. 

For today's task, we would like you to choose your favourite holiday destination. This could be somewhere you have been before on holiday or somewhere you haven't visited but would like to go to one day. It could be a place abroad or somewhere here in the UK. Then, we would like you to create a advert that persuades people to visit your chosen holiday destination. In your advert, make sure you include the different types of activities that are available and the different things that people can do while they are there. You can include bright and colourful pictures/drawings in your advert to make it eye-catching to read and look at. 

If you would like, you can even present your advert as a leaflet by folding up a piece of paper. 

Tuesday 7th July

Pointillism is an art technique that involves creating pictures out of just dots. Take a look at the document below which gives examples of pointillism inspired drawings and paintings. Your task today is to create a picture of the seaside using the pointillism technique. Remember that your picture can only be made out of dots, so no drawing lines! You can decide what you use to make your picture- it can be paint, colouring pencils/pens, chalk etc. 

Wednesday 8th July

Choose 5 countries from around the world and research what their flag looks like. In your exercise book, have a go at drawing each country's flag. Under each flag, write the following information:

  • The country that the flag belongs to
  • The continent that the country is in
  • Whether the country is in the Northern Hemisphere or Southern Hemisphere (or maybe it's in both hemispheres!)
  • What the capital city of the country is

You may have to do a bit of research to find out these bits of information. You can also use https://mapmaker.nationalgeographic.org/ ,which is an online, interactive world map, to help you. 

Thursday 9th July

Today, you are going to make your own kite. Follow the instructions attached below. All you will need it a piece of A4 paper, a wooden skewer or a plastic straw, string, scissors and sticky tape. Once you have made your kite, why don't you decorate it? If you don't have all of the materials to make a kite, don't worry. Instead you can draw/design your own kite. 

Friday 10th July

Can you make a paper aeroplane and have a competition with someone in your household to see whose can travel the furthest? There are lots of different ways to make paper aeroplanes. You can follow the link below which will show you one way to make a paper aeroplane, or if you know a different way to make one, you can use that method instead. Once you are done, why not colour in/ decorate your aeroplane before testing it out!
