Road to Reformation

Students are to complete their “Road” on the changes in the church from Henry VIII to Elizabeth I, including Edward VI and Mary I. They are to write in detail about what each did to the church and whether they were Catholic or Protestant.

They have an information sheet to help, which is also attached below:Information on the Reformation

Tudor Estate Agent Poster

Students are to complete their Estate Agents’ poster. They are selling a late Tudor house and have to emphasise in persuasive, emotive language, all the “new” fashions this house has.

If they need to use a textbook for the information or to use felts, students can come up any lunchtime

Lady Anne Clifford

Lady Anne Clifford Research

The above attachment is what students have been given to help them with their research project.

It can be handed in any time before the deadline – as students are not at school in 2 weeks, I have extended this to given them time to complete it; otherwise it would have to be completed in a week.

The work needs to be either 1.5 pages of their exercise books long – minimum. Or they can do it on computers – only on Word or equivalent and font size 14 maximum and only on Times New Roman, Aerial or Comic Sans MS. This is to be 1 page of A4 minimum with no gaps between lines.

Any issues with printing off work from computers can be solved by either doing the work at school, or sending it completed to my school email address which they should have copied down: Or simply by writing it out in their exercise books, which they should all have!

Students also have plenty of time to see me for any help

Beggars poster

Students are to complete their Wanted Beggar poster. They should have written on the back of their posters the success criteria. Any issues regarding using felts, or information, they can do the work with me of a lunchtime for support

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!!!!

Y8 Animal artist research
