Easter Homework

 

I have added a few fun art and D&T activities for the children to try over the Easter Holidays. It would be great if the children could really focus on their reading over the holidays. To help with this I have included a few 60 second reads with the answers.

 

Another way to help push the children forward with their reading is to log on to https://www.getepic.com/ to read. Log onto STUDENT and enter the class code: trp0521. If required, enter the class pin: 4444.  Children can read a book in their Accelerated Reader ZPD and can take some quizzes on the site. Some of the titles also have quizzes on the usual Accelerated Reader site- don't forget to use the school log in: https://ukhosted90.renlearn.co.uk/2244910

Easter Homework - Art and D&T

 

Look at the Death mask template and copy it into your work book. Draw a copy of the Egyptian Death masks. Look at examples of Death masks on line - think about the colours you could use and the design to create a Death mask of your own.

 

Use the template and copy the cartouche into your work book. (A cartouche is a name plate attached to coffins. The ancient Egyptians wanted to make sure that their two souls - the Ba and the Ka - could find their way back to their tomb at night, after they died) Using Hieroglyphics write you name on the cartouche and colour it in just like the Ancient Egyptians.

 

Or why not try designing a catapult just like the Romans.
