GRADE 1 WEEK 7 TERM 3

REMOTE LEARNING 2020

24th August 2020 – 28th August 2020

READ ALONG WITH MRS MENHENNET!

 

This is week 7 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.

There are patterns everywhere around us.

There are patterns in the park.

There are patterns in the supermarket.

There are patterns on a farm.

There are patterns at the market.

I am absolutely positive there are patterns in your house too!

Perhaps on the floor?

Or in the bathroom?

Hmm! I want you to go for a walk around your house and see how many patterns you can find.

I will wait right here until you get back. Take as much time as you need. You might want to make a list.

Are you surprised at how many patterns you found around your house?

wow

Well now you have had a good look at the patterns around your house I want you to draw 4 of those patterns. Perhaps you can draw your favourite patterns you found around your house?

Take a piece of paper,

any piece of paper will do, and fold it into four spaces.

So, fold the paper in half. Press on the crease and then fold it in half again. Press on the crease. You should now have a piece of paper with four spaces in which to draw.

fold paper into four

 

You can use pencils,

or crayons,

or textas.

Some people call textas, markers.

Draw a different pattern in each of the 4 spaces on your paper. FILL THE SPACE with your pattern.

If your pattern has lots of detail try to put as much of it into your drawings as you can.

I will put a folder on Class Dojo for you to put your 4 fantastic patterns in.

Your Specialists Rich Task was due at the end of last week. If you need the instructions for the Rich Task you can find them on the Week 5 blog post. If you can’t find the Week 5 blog post there is a link to it in the sidebar of the blog in the section called Recent Blog Posts.

 You also need to ensure you have submitted any other work for your  Specialist teachers that is evidence of your participation in remote learning, into the correct place.

If you enjoyed the looking for patterns or want to tell me anything else you can always post a comment at the end of this blog post.

If you don’t know how to post a comment I gave you instructions on how to do this on the week 5 blog post.

Have fun looking at patterns,

from Mrs Menhennet

Here are the 4 different patterns the grade 1 students found around their house.

GRADE 3 WEEK 6 REMOTE LEARNING 2020

GRADE 3 WEEK 6 REMOTE LEARNING 2020

Your sunflowers final artwork is due on Monday 24th May 2020!

You must submit all your artworks (rough draft 4 sunflowers/rough draft vase of sunflowers/final artwork vase of sunflowers) or your report for Semester 1 will state NEEDS ATTENTION in the Visual Arts section.

Hello to all my Grade 3 students from Cambridge Primary School and whoever else might be reading this post.

avatar Shelley Menhennet

I can’t believe it is Week 6 of remote learning already!

We are going to be doing a bit of Visual Arts learning around the topic of Vincent Van Gogh’s sunflowers in ART!

So, in Week 3 you drew a rough draft of four different sunflowers.

If you didn’t do this work go to week 3 here.

Ariella 3A sun

Mishika 3A sun

And in Week 4 you drew a rough draft of a vase of sunflowers. if you didn’t do this work go to Week 4 here.

Now, in Week 5 and Week 6, I would like you to create your final artwork for this unit of work. I want you to create an artwork of a vase of sunflowers.

This artwork will require some thinking and some organising. So this artwork is due on Monday 24th May 2020!

In the past, my grade 3 students have created a vase of flowers like this.

This artwork involved-

  • drawing a line across the paper to show the edge of the table

  • painting the background and the table clothgrade 3 van gogh sunflowers painting 64 2015

  • printing flower stems using a piece of scrap cardboard on its sidegrade 3 van gogh sunflowers painting 59 2015

  • making sure the stems weren’t all perfectly straightgrade 3 van gogh sunflowers painting 56 2015

  • painting or printing sunflower heads leaving one stem without a headgrade 3 van gogh sunflowers painting 55 2015

  • making sure the sunflowers were not all just facing the frontgrade 3 van gogh sunflowers painting 54 2015

  • some of the sunflowers might even be dropping their petals onto the tableclothgrade 3 van gogh sunflowers painting 52 2015

  • folding a piece of coloured paper in half and drawing half a vase on one side, cutting out the shape and unfolding it to form a vasegrade 3 van gogh sunflowers painting 51 2015

  • gluing the paper vase on top of the stemsgrade 3 van gogh sunflowers painting 49 2015

  • decorating the vase with buttons, beads, sequins, ribbon, paper and fabric scrapsgrade 3 van gogh sunflowers painting 35 2015

  • creating the last sunflower head with Model Magic, an air dry clay, gluing it onto the last stem and painting it so one of the flower heads was three dimensional.grade 3 van gogh sunflowers painting 28 2015

This sort of artwork is called mixed media because so many different sorts of materials and ways of creating are used at the same time to create a whole artwork.

But in this time of remote learning we all have to adapt to creating at home.

So you have lots of choice with how you create your vase of sunflowers this week. However I want you to use more than one sort of material or one way of creating your art work.

So perhaps you will draw

or paint

or use oil pastels

or use lego

or make salt dough

Salt Dough Recipe

Ingredients

  • I cup salt
  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 1 cup hot water

Method

  1. Add salt and plain flour to a bowl gradually adding hot water. You might not need all the water!
  2. Mix together until a dough forms. Make sure it isn’t sticky.
  3. Leave your salt dough creations to air dry overnight. Then put your salt dough creations in the oven at 120 degrees Celsius for about 3 hours.
  4. When your salt dough creations are cool you can paint them. If you don’t have gloss paint and you want them to look shiny you can paint them with varnish when the paint is dry. If you don’t have any varnish just paint them with PVA glue. This will also make them nice and shiny.

or use cut paper

or folded paper

or torn paper

or cardboard

use stuff from the kitchen drawers and cupboards

or stuff out of the laundry basket

or other stuff

or all of those things

or something I haven’t even listed!

And if you decide to create other sorts of flowers instead of sunflowers that is also okay.

This cooking artist, Lorraine Elliott from  her website Not Quite Nigella has created a focaccia as a vase of sunflowers!

I am giving you lots and lots and lots of choice

in how you create your artwork but I am NOT telling you to go out and buy stuff! Use what is already in your home! Don’t forget to ask permission to pull stuff out of cupboards to use or to make salt dough, or things like that.

Email your photos to me when you have finished.

shelley.menhennet@education.vic.gov.au

And, of course, tidy up after you have created!!!

I cannot wait to see your artworks inspired by Vincent Van Gogh’s sunflower paintings!

You can send it in earlier but remember this artwork is due on Monday 24th May 2020!

Have fun creating!

GRADE 4 WEEK 4 REMOTE LEARNING CELESTIAL BODIES 2020

Hello to all my Grade 4 students from Cambridge Primary School and whoever else might be reading this post.

avatar Shelley Menhennet

I can’t believe it is Week 4 of remote learning already!

We are going to be doing a bit of Visual Arts learning around the topic of CELESTIAL BODIES!

 

If you haven’t done the Week 3 activity yet please go back to Week 3 HERE.

Did you email your rough draft to me last week?

If you haven’t done that yet send it to me by email so I can put it onto the blog post. If you want to look at everybody else’s rough drafts, that is where they are, on last week’s blog post. Go to where it says HERE up above and it will take you there!

So by now you have looked at lots of images of celestial bodies and you have drawn 4 rough drafts as well.

celestial bodies artwork

If you want to look at more celestial bodies artworks go to my Pinterest board.

This week I would like to see 2 ideas for your own celestial bodies art work. You are NOT making the final art work yet. You are just working on 2 different ideas. How can you produce an artwork that has more than one celestial body in it? How can you put them together? Or perhaps you just want to create one of the celestial bodies? What will you use?

Fold a piece of paper in half so you have two spaces.

Draw up 2 different ideas for your final art work. You can use a bit of colour this time but REMEMBER this is NOT your final piece. This is just working on two different ideas!

What art materials will you use? Are you going to draw your final piece?

Pencils? Textas? Crayons? Oil pastels? Watercolour pencils?

Do you have any paint?

What have you got at home that you can use?

Perhaps you want to try to make a 3D artwork?

Playdoh? Plasticine or modelling clay?

Or you could make salt dough? But ask your parents permission first!

Salt Dough Recipe

Ingredients

  • I cup salt
  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 1 cup hot water

Method

  1. Add salt and plain flour to a bowl gradually adding hot water. You might not need all the water!
  2. Mix together until a dough forms. Make sure it isn’t sticky.
  3. Leave your salt dough creations to air dry overnight. Then put your salt dough creations in the oven at 120 degrees Celsius for about 3 hours.
  4. When your salt dough creations are cool you can paint them. If you don’t have gloss paint and you want them to look shiny you can paint them with varnish when the paint is dry. If you don’t have any varnish just paint them with PVA glue. This will also make them nice and shiny.

What else have you got that you could use?

Lego? Other construction materials?

Scrap cardboard?

Anything else?

I am not asking you to rush out and buy materials to use for this task. Use what you already have at home.

And this week you are just coming up with 2 ideas, not actually doing the final piece. Do a drawing of your idea and write down what you think you might use to make it.  Do this TWICE!

And remember, it is OKAY to change your mind!

You need to think like an artist and not see changing your mind as making a mistake, because it is NOT. It is just that you came up with a better idea!

And that’s it!

Photograph your paper, with two different ideas on it, with your device, and email it to me.

shelley.menhennet@education.vic.gov.au

I look forward to seeing your interesting ideas.

Bye!

GRADE 4 WEEK 3 REMOTE LEARNING CELESTIAL BODIES 2020

Hello to all my Grade 4 students from Cambridge Primary School and whoever else might be reading this post.

avatar Shelley Menhennethello word in block letters with exaggerated 3D shadows

I can’t believe it is Week 3 of remote learning already!

 

We are going to be doing a bit of Visual Arts learning around the topic of CELESTIAL BODIES!

What are celestial bodies? Well CELESTIAL means relating to the sky or OUTER SPACE. So celestial bodies are planets, asteroids, stars and comets. It’s just a fancy name for them.

People have always been fascinated by what they see in the sky and they have used this for inspiration in their artworks.

Artworks have been made celebrating The sun and the moon and the stars for as long as people have been making art.

This is an ancient aboriginal rock painting  with the sun and stars.

Here are some artworks for you to look at that I put under the topic of celestial bodies.

Sometimes the artists use more than one at a time. For example they put the sun and the moon together.

Some artists have even made 3D sculptures of celestial bodies.

This is a link to my pinterest board with lots more celestial bodies for you to look at. There is metalwork, jewellery, felting, drawing, painting, clay work, sculpture, etc.

https://www.pinterest.com.au/shelley109/celestial-bodies-art-ideas-and-resources/

Now we’re going to do some drawing!

Take a piece of paper, any piece of paper will do, and fold it into four spaces. So, fold the paper in half. Press on the crease and then fold it in half again. Press on the crease. You should now have a piece of paper with four spaces in which to draw. You will just need a grey lead pencil to draw with.

fold paper into four

 

grey lead pencil

grey lead pencil

Everybody should be ready to draw now.  You only need a grey lead pencil.

I DON’T want to see any COLOUR!

I don’t expect to see the best drawings you have ever done in your life. These are ROUGH DRAFTS. You are just practising and playing with ideas!

Please don’t be too hard on yourself and think you have made mistakes. DON’T USE A RUBBER! Just DRAW. I only want you to spend about 5 MINUTES drawing each of the 4 drawings. I would really like you to use your imagination and just go for it!!!

You need 4 sections because I want you to do 4 drawings!

Drawing 1 – Draw the sun. Try to give the sun some character.

Drawing 2 – Draw the moon. Is the moon full or only a half or a quarter? Perhaps it has a full body? Perhaps it has a neck, shoulders and arms?

Drawing 3 – Draw a star. Use your imagination.

Drawing 4 – Draw a group of celestial bodies together. How can you link them together? Are they holding hands? Are they leaning on each other?

When you have finished your 4 drawings –

  • put the numbers 1-4 on each one so I know which is which

  • put your name and grade on your paper

  • photograph your drawing using your device

  • email it to me            shelley.menhennet@education.vic.gov.au

  • That’s it!

Congratulations

I hope you enjoyed this drawing activity even if you were only drawing some rough drafts. I look forward to working with you in Week 4 when we will explore celestial bodies in visual arts further.

Bye!

GRADE 3 WEEK 3 REMOTE LEARNING SUNFLOWERS 2020

Hello to all my Grade 3 students from Cambridge Primary School and whoever else might be reading this post.

avatar Shelley Menhennethello word in block letters with exaggerated 3D shadows

I can’t believe it is Week 3 of remote learning already!

 

We are going to be doing a bit of Visual Arts learning around the topic of SUNFLOWERS and Vincent Van Gogh!

Van Gogh self portrait

Vincent Van Gogh loved painting sunflowers. Here are a few images of his sunflower paintings.

Sunflowers Van Gogh 3

He didn’t always paint them in vases.

Sunflowers Van Gogh 5

He practised drawing rough drafts of sunflowers in his art journal.

Please use this link to watch a video that will give you some more information about Vincent Van Gogh.

I hope you enjoyed the video.

I photographed these sunflowers in a garden bed at Cambridge primary School several years ago.

Petals are closed as the sunflower hasn’t opened yet.

Hey! Life cycles are studied in Science so are we are doing Science in Visual Arts? Yes, we are!

HEY wordscince word

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Every living organism on our planet has a life cycle.  This is the life cycle of a frog.

Life cycle of a frog

Life cycle of a frog

This is the life cycle of a sunflower.

Sunflower life cycle

Sunflowers grow from a seed,

burst up through the earth,

stretch and grow towards the light,

open up the petals on their flower head,

bees collect the pollen from the huge flower centre on the sunflower head,

the petals start to wither and drop off the flower head,

the sunflower drops it’s seeds,

the stem also starts to dry out and the whole flower crumples to the ground,

the sunflower decomposes back into the earth

and a sunflower grows from a seed.

I would like you to have a really good look at these sunflower photos and  then I want you to draw just with a grey lead pencil on a piece of paper.

Take a piece of paper, any piece of paper will do, and fold it into four spaces. So, fold the paper in half. Press on the crease and then fold it in half again. Press on the crease. You should now have a piece of paper with four spaces in which to draw. You will just need a grey lead pencil to draw with.

Everybody should be ready to draw now. You only need a grey lead pencil. I don’t want to see any colour! I don’t expect to see the best drawings you have ever done in your life. These are rough drafts. You are just practising, just like Vincent Van Gogh did in his art journal!

Please don’t be too hard on yourself and think you have made mistakes. DON’T USE A RUBBER! Just DRAW. I only want you to spend about 5 MINUTES drawing each of the 4 drawings. Look at the photos. Draw what YOU SEE, NOT WHAT YOU THINK YOU SEE!!!

You need 4 sections because I want you to do 4 drawings!

Drawing 1 – draw the front of a sunflower.

Drawing 2 – Draw a side view of a sunflower.

Drawing 3 – Draw a sunflower with the petals still closed. It hasn’t opened yet.

Drawing 4 – Draw a sunflower where the petals are falling off because it is dying.

Here are some rough draft practice sunflower drawings that have been done by previous grade 3 students from Cambridge Primary School.

When you have finished your 4 drawings  put the numbers 1-4 on each one so I know which is which. Put your name and grade on your paper. Photograph your drawing using your device.
