GRADE 1 WEEK 8 TERM 3
REMOTE LEARNING 2020
31st August 2020 – 7th September 2020
READ ALONG WITH MRS MENHENNET!
This is week 8 of Term 3 2020 and all my Grade 1 students are remote learning at home!
This week we are going to be doing some Visual Arts learning about PATTERN.
Last week you looked for PATTERNS around your house and then you drew them like this.
If you haven’t drawn your patterns yet go to the Grade 1 week 7 blog post for instructions.
This week I have a read aloud for you of Bronwyn Bancroft’s beautiful picture story book ‘Shapes of Australia’. It is full of magnificent patterns and a feast for your eyes to devour!
READ ALONG WITH MRS MENHENNET PART 2
Oh that was just glorious to look at! All those wonderful Australian shapes decorated by author and illustrator Bronwyn Bancroft.
Now I have something special to show you. These are my new boots.
Yes, they have rainbows on them and yes, they are now called my ROY G BIV boots!
Do you like them?
I LOVE them!
You currently have lots of PATTERN ideas in your head. Last week you looked all around your house searching for PATTERNS and this week you have looked at and listened to a beautiful story by Bronwyn Bancroft full of PATTERNS.
So let’s use all those PATTERN ideas floating around in your head. I want you to design a new pair of PATTERNED boots for me!
Here is a drawing template of a boot that is similar to my ROY G BIV boots.
If you want to use this template you will have to copy it and then print it.
If you don’t have a printer available or you don’t want to print the template just draw up a large boot shape on a piece of paper and use that.
Will you cover the boot in one pattern or divide it up into sections and put different patterns in each section? What colours will you use?
I can’t wait to see what you come up with! I will make a folder called Visual Arts Week 8 on Class Dojo for your finished boot designs.
HERE ARE THE GRADE 1 PATTERN BOOTS!
