Andy Warhol was famous for exploring every day and familiar objects in his work, using brands such as Coco-Cola and Campbell’s Soup. He liked the idea of taking ordinary things, for example cereal or bananas, and turning them into art. He did this with his famous print of a tomato soup can.
Have a go at designing your own. It can be a real soup flavour or an imaginary one!
I wanted to send you a great bit THANK YOU for your hard work this week. I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know you better and can’t wait to be your teacher in September.
I hope you all have a lovely end of term, whether you are working hard at home or coming to school some of the time. Even more importantly than that, have a wonderful summer holiday; read lots of great books (and remember them so you can tell me all about them) and fill your days doing things that make you happy.
Today we are going to be thinking about saying goodbye to your time in Room 6 and saying hello to your time in Room 8 (I know most of you had a year in Room 8 when you were year 3s but it will be different being a Year 5!).
I have chosen a Beatles song for today – it is a classic!
Maths Today I would like you to have a go at an arithmetic test – you can ask for help and discuss the questions with grown ups at home. This is a good chance to get your brain ticking over with lots of different types of maths questions. The first test is a year 4 test – if you feel quite confident about your maths, have a go at this one: Arithmetic Test Y4
Here are the answers to help you check your work: Test Answers
If you love to challenge yourself in your maths work, have a go at this trickier arithmetic test: Trickier Arithmetic Test
For another mathematical challenge, you might like to work through the challenge in this video.
Write two short pieces of writing (they really don’t have to be enormous – one good paragraph in each letter is enough).
Task 1 – Write a letter to Mrs Gwyther. Tell Mrs Gwyther one of your favourite memories from being in Year 4. Letter
Task 2: ‘I wish my teacher knew…’ for this task I would like you to make sure I know anything that it is important for me to know. This might be a worry you have, information about something you love or something you find tricky. Just have a good think and let me know. I Wish…
This afternoon I would like you to create a piece of art based on three words. Your first job is to choose three words that you associate with lockdown. You might like to choose three words from the word cloud below or you might be able to think of three of your own:
Then I would like you to turn this into a piece of art work. You can use bubble writing to create lettering and decorate your words to try and get across something about how you feel. Here is an example by @allthroughart that might inspire you:
Today I have chosen a crime mystery novel to share with you. I love reading mysteries and this is one of my most enjoyable reads this year. It is set on a steam train and I managed to read it on a train journey to London!
I have received some fantastic 100 word stories from you and have picked a couple to share with you. Well done to everybody who had a go at this challenge – 100 words can feel like a lot of writing!
Freya’s 100 Word Story:
Have you ever heard of Stilt Town? It is a place where houses are on stilts. It’s very dangerous because anything or anyone could suddenly collapse off the side and be swept away by the ocean, never seen again. In Stilt Town, there lived a girl called Pinecone. She hated Stilt Town. All she wanted was to go and explore away from Stilt Town. But, she couldn’t do it, because the waves were very angry and dangerous. One night, Pinecone got up and started to build a contraption she could use to travel the world. She knew it would work.

George’s 100 Word Story: An old little town all on stilts sat in the sea water with lots of fishes swimming around the tall stilt legs in the cold calm water. Buildings standing tall, all lit up with bright candles, flames are burning bright orange lighting up the sky, somewhere there is a full moon reflecting on the sea with shooting stars quickly flying through the gloomy and cloudy sky. All quiet and peaceful with cog wheels creakily moving in the wind, some buildings higher than others and some looking like ships on stilts. The buildings quiet with no one in sight.
