History of the lesson

Students are to write a paragraph (minimum of 10 lines) in the front of their exercise books on what happened during the lesson, from when they came in, to when they left. What was said, what did they do, what happened, what did they learn……it is a “history” of their lesson period 3 Monday 11th November.

As students need to remember the lesson, the deadline for the next day is acceptable, and students were told to do it over lunchtime!

Celtic Warrior

Students are to complete a poster of a Celtic Warrior. They have a description of one, with highlighted words which they have to convert into a picture of him – for example, blonde hair. They shoul all know what they are doing. Any issues, questions, lost sheets, or a need to use colours, students should see me any lunchtime this week

Peter Jackson Report

Students are to write up their report in their booklet. We have started this in class so they know what they are doing. They have all the information with them. They can see me lunchtimes before the lesson for help if needed

Y7 Bee Drawing

Select one of the bee images to draw in pencil. Draw in your sketchbook on the page we printed gold honeycomb pattern onto. I would suggest you fit it in on a white bit of the page. It is fine if bits overlap the gold. Keep it a similar size as on the sheet. Try to be as accurate as possible without tracing! If you have lost your sheet collect another one from Art (in the box labelled Y7 along from the computer) or see Mrs Truch on Mon, Wed or Fris.

Here are the bee pics. Bee images

Make a mask task

Make a 3D mask to be handed in to your first lesson back after half term.

It can be any culture you like. Look for ideas on the internet. I have set up a Pinterest board to help with ideas. https://www.pinterest.co.uk/kellinatruch/y7-mask-making/

See me at a lunchtime for idea or materials before half term if you need.


There will be a prize for the most effort and outstanding work.

Y7 Mask Moodboard

Create a moodboard showing different African masks.

Create a background (coffee or mud would work too). Print out pics of African masks, cut out and glue on top. You could draw from some masks too or draw patterns in the gaps. Keep the colours in line with the African masks you have found.

7M Art Alive Magazine task

Two options:

  1. Select a painting from 4 choices and write up to 100 words explaining why that painting should be selected to go on the front cover of a magazine. Use artistic Vocab (sheet to help). Make sure you particularly focus on colour but you can mention other visual elements as well. No more than 100 words.
