GRADE 1 WEEK 4 TERM 3 REMOTE LEARNING 2020

GRADE 1 WEEK 4 TERM 3

REMOTE LEARNING 2020

READ ALONG WITH MRS MENHENNET!

3rd August 2020 – 7th August 2020

Hello to all my Grade 1 students from Cambridge Primary School and whoever else might be reading this post.

This is week 4 of Term 3 2020 and all my Grade 1 students are remote learning at home!

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

 

  •  To revise the order of the colours of the rainbow.

  • To read along with Mrs Menhennet as she reads the blog post aloud.

  • To introduce the instructions for the Specialists Rich Task.

  • I know the order of the colours in the rainbow.

  • I can play the audio function  on the blog post and read along with Mrs Menhennet.

  • I understand the instructions for the Specialist Rich Task.

    Let’s get started!

In Week 2 I asked you to draw a rainbow scene including the colours of the rainbow in order.

Last week (week 3) I asked you to create a rainbow from found objects.

 

I have made folders on your grade’s Class Dojo page for you to upload photos of your creations for Week 2 and Week 3. These photos are evidence that you have completed this work.

Here are the Instructions for the Specialists Rich Task.

This Rich Task will require some thinking and some organising. You will need lots of time to complete it. So the Grade 1 Rich Task should be uploaded to your grade’s ClassDojo portfolio by the end of WEEK 6!

 

For this Grade 1 Specialists Rich task, you will create a character called ROY.G.BIV.

ROY G BIV needs to have a body.

A part of  ROY.G.BIV’s body must be in RAINBOW ORDER like his name.

ROY.G.BIV’s body also needs to include at least one PATTERN

You need to label ROY.G.BIV’s body  in Italian and English.

What is  ROY.G.BIV’s  name in Italian?

Use digital technology to enhance your rich task. You might use Keynote or another creative app or other digital tools you know how to use. You might photograph or video your rich task as you create it.

What will you use to create this rich task?

In the past, in the art room, my students have created ROY G BIV like this.

This artwork involved  –

  • Drawing a large face for ROY G BIV

  • Using coloured strips of paper for his hair in ROY G BIV order

He has also been created like this.

This artwork involved  –

  • Drawing a LARGE head, neck and shoulders for ROY G BIV to fill the space on the paper. (If I wanted you to draw ROY G BIV really small I would tell you to create your rich task on a tiny post it note!) DRAW BIG!

  • Using coloured strips of paper for his hair in ROY G BIV order

  • painting different parts of his body in particular colours

  • cutting out his mouth and giving him a colourful tongue

In this time of remote learning, as artists,  we are not working in the art room.

In this time of remote learning, as artists, we all have to adapt  and change to creating at home.

So you won’t be able to create your ROY G BIV in exactly the same way that it has been made before.  And that really doesn’t matter. You will all be brilliantly creative artists at home!

So I am giving you  lots of CHOICE with how you create your ROY G BIV.

So perhaps you will draw with oil pastels or pencils or textas or crayons

or paint with a brush

or paint with  sponges

 

or print with objects

or paint with watered down food colouring

or use play doh

or make your own play doh or 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 a drawing or painting app on your ipad

 

or cut plain or patterned paper

or use torn, plain or patterned paper

 

 or scrap cardboard

 

or stuff out of the laundry basket

or use lego

or make Roy G Biv out of rainbow cupcakes

 

and what about the found object rainbow from last week?

Perhaps your found object rainbow could be ROY G BIV’s body? You could add more objects to create a head, legs, arms, hands, feet and create a found object ROY G BIV?

wow

Imagine if the artworks below were created in rainbow colours?

So you could use some of these things

or all of these things

or something I haven’t even listed!

I am giving you lots and lots and lots of choice

in how you create your rich task

I am NOT telling you to go out and buy new art materials to use!

NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO!

You need to THINK about what you already have at HOME and HOW you can use it.

 

Don’t forget to ask permission to pull stuff out of cupboards to use, or to make salt dough, or things like that.

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

I cannot wait to see your ROY G BIV rich task!

 

 So before you get started I think we should sing the ROY G BIV song together. I hope I can hear you!

 

Have fun,

Mrs Menhennet

GRADE PREP WEEK 4 TERM 3 REMOTE LEARNING 2020

GRADE PREP WEEK 4 TERM 3

REMOTE LEARNING 2020

3rd August 2020 – 7th August 2020

READ ALONG WITH MRS MENHENNET!

 

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

This is week 4 of Term 3 2020 and all my Prep students are remote learning at home!

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

In week 2 I asked you to draw a self portrait after watching a video.

And last week (week 3) I asked you to draw a monochromatic self portrait after watching another video.

I have made folders on your grade’s Class Dojo  or Seesaw page for you to upload photos of your self portraits for Week 2 and Week 3. These photos are evidence that you have completed this work.

Here are the instructions for the Prep Specialists Rich Task.

This Rich Task will require some thinking and some organising. You will need time to complete it. So the Grade Prep Rich Task should be uploaded to your grade’s ClassDojo or Seesaw folder or portfolio by the end of WEEK 6!

For this Prep Specialists Rich Task, you will need to create a self portrait using “stuff” from around your house. 

NO DRAWING!

Label your facial features in English and Italian.

You also need to create an animal face.

NO DRAWING!

Label the facial features of the animal in Italian and English.

Photograph your self portrait and your animal face using your device.

How will you complete this self portrait and animal face without drawing?

thinking emoji

 

What will you use to create this rich task?

 

You will be using things that you already have at home.

 You have lots of CHOICE with how you create your self portrait and animal face.

Perhaps you will create your self portrait with counters or blocks

or  with lego

 

or with stuff from the kitchen cupboard

or cut pieces of paper

or paper plates

or wool or string

or fabric scraps

or playdoh and pasta

or stuff out of the laundry basket

 

or you could use some of these things

or all of these things

or something I haven’t even listed!

You could even use yourself as part of a huge self portrait like this person!

I am giving you lots and lots and lots of choice 

in how you create your rich task

I am NOT telling you to go out and buy new art materials or things to use!

NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO!

You need to THINK about what you already have at HOME and HOW you can use it.

 

Now STOP!

Before you start running around your house like a crazy person collecting objects let’s think about this.

I do not want you touching any objects that don’t belong to you without permission.

 

I also want you to know and understand that all good artists clean up after themselves.

So, every single thing that you use in your rich task has to be put away properly and correctly after you have finished photographing it.

I cannot wait to see what you create!.

 

Have fun,

Mrs Menhennet

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.

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!
