Pattern Development

Using the two traced shapes (larger ones drawn on the tracing paper) developed in the lesson today create at least 3 different pattern combinations mixing together the two different shapes. Think about rotational symmetry. Add colour to at least 2 of them with colouring pencils. Select 2 complementary colours (opposite in colour wheel), i.e. red and green, blue and orange or yellow and purple.

You could try outlining shapes in the colours and leaving them hollow or filling them with solid shade. Advanced colouring would include blending the colours from light to dark. If you select Red and Green you could blend pink into deep red and lime into emerald or forest green. Be sure to stay in the lines!!!!

Factory short story

Students are to complete a short story on life in a mill in the 1800s. We have discussed how to do this in class and students have 3 sheets – 2 for information and 1 with the success criteria on it. The minimum is 1.5 pages of their exercise books.

How did 13 year olds spend their time in the 1800s?

Students are to complete worksheet 24, following the instructions. I have also gone through this in class. They have been told if they need plain paper for their own 24 hour clock, to get it from my room.

Students have been given an extra week to do this homework due to me being on a school trip when they next have history. Therefore there’s no excuses for not doing it! Any “lost” sheets can be replaced before the lesson so students should complete it well in advance – they can hand it to me if completed early!

Farming Essay

Students are to complete their essay on farming. We went through this in class. Minimum is one page of exercise book. Any issues, see Mrs Cullen at lunchtimes.

Making of the UK

Students are to complete their Making of the UK posters. They can come up to my room at lunchtimes to work together, borrow glues, felts, coloured pens or coloured card, if needed
