This is our final week of experimenting with the watercolour palettes! Today you will need your wax crayon that was in your delivered packs, but you might also like to gather some other items. Find a coloured pencil if you can, and maybe even along wax candle/birthday candle that you could draw with. If you can, also find some kitchen roll or tissuesand some salttoo.Watch this video and complete the tasks mentioned by Miss Wroe. Send us any completed paintings – we’d love to see them! Email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
After discussing a range of religions last week, this week we are going to focus on just one.
Once logged in, select ‘Unit 3: El fin de semana (The weekend)’ from the ‘Super Challenge’ section. This is the unit we will be looking at this half term.
Today we will use lesson 3. Start the lessonand use the play arrow to go through the slides. Click on the speakerphones to hear the recordings. We are recapping last week’s new learning, so as you go through the slides, see if you can remember the Spanish for each picture. Try and say the Spanish before you listen to the speakerphone.
Task 1 – On slide 16, try and match up the letters (pictures) with the number (sound recording) in the middle. Record your answers.On Slide 17, you’ll see that the Spanish is now written down. See if this helps you check your answers!
Task 2 – Then, on slide 18, there are some missing letters!This is your final task for today. Try and copy each phrase correctly by adding the missing letters.You may choose to do this with one of the worksheets (either gap fill ‘less challenge’ or ‘more challenge). Then, check your answers using the answer sheet.
If you have any questions or have work to submit, please send an email to email@example.com.
