Welcome to the Home Learning pages...please find a list of helpful websites here. You can navigate through these to find resources for the appropriate age groups. Some will aid the work set and some be fun extras.

Week 8 - 15th June
Hello all, I hope we are all good. Myself and Mr Lawler have thought about a way on how we can share our memories of Mr Cleaver together and we have decided to put together a video, made by the children of Wells Hall, about their favourite memories or moments with Mr Cleaver. I will then, with the help of Mr Lawler, put together the video and then share the video once it's completed. It would also be a great idea to upload the finished video onto a memory stick and include it somewhere within the Mr Cleaver rainbow.
Obviously this is all voluntary and is not compulsory if you do not wish to include a video.
We would like the video to be;
- 15 seconds long maximum
- Shot horizontally (makes it easier) I won't be able to use videos that are not shot like this, sorry.
- Feature a favourite memory or moment you shared with Mr Cleaver.
If your video is longer than 15 seconds then don't worry, I can clip it my end.
Once videos are finished could you please either upload them to showbie under this ICT section, or send them to my email of jsmith@Wellshallprimary.co.uk
Videos are requested to be sent in by the 26th June 2020, unfortunately I will not be able to use videos uploaded after this date.
We will posting themes for you to create some art around - you can send in photos of your creations to firstname.lastname@example.org or to your class email address which can found in your class's homepage under 'Home Learning'. which we will display here. They can be sketches, paints, prints, textiles, collages, structures using junk modelling techniques or playdough, and even photography projects!
This link is great to inspire ideas and different art techniques:

Theme 4: Home
Theme 5: Self Portraits
Use a mirror or a photo of yourself to draw, paint, model or collage a picture of yourself, in any style you like and using a range of mediums.
Maybe research self portraits first and see if there is a style you like. You may choose to be abstract; 3 of my top artists to mimic this style are: Matisse, Andy Warhol and Picasso. Or you may be more realistic. It's up to you. Examples
Also, watch this video to help with drawing the features of your face in the correct positions https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iMEBSQJYaAY
Don’t forget about the background - some artists would include objects to tell the viewer a little bit more about themselves.
