This week we are going to look at the style of Pointilism. I have attached an introduction to pointillism in topic resources. Create your own pointillist image based on flowers, plants, trees, fruits, vegetables – it is up to you. Just remember to stick to the pointillism style and I’d love to see your images! You may use pens, pencils, paint, cotton buds to help with dots or even your fingers- have a think what resources you have and how best to use them!


Please access one of the links below and complete the workout / dance. I’d love to see some of your fantastic moves! – Oti Mabuse – Joe Wicks

I know some dance schools or gyms are doing online dance/gym classes.


Write a rhyming poem to describe the lifecycle of a plant. Please see the example under topic resources.



Have a go at completing the daily journal exercises – found under topic resources. Being away from school can be tricky but these journals will help to support your wellbeing and reflect on your day.


This week we are moving on to our Stewardship topic. We will be looking at the importance of caring for our world.

There are stewards at football matches, concerts or even at church. When we look after something, this is called stewardship. Often, the word stewardship is used to refer to a responsibility to take care of something that is owned by someone else.

Create a mindmap of the things you are a steward for – what do you take care of and why? Can you think of any links?

Draw an outline of a leaf. On the leaf, write one way we can care for the earth and the reasons why we should care for it. Once you have done this, send your leaf to me via email and I will try to create our own tree of stewardship and publish this on our class Twitter.

Always remember to use the internet safely and speak to an adult if you aren’t sure about something.
