Open the Powerpoint presentation saved below. Read the information about the British sculptor Carl Warner on the first page. Look at the images of his work on pages 3 to 6. I would like you to choose your favourite picture and think about this is more detail. Answer the questions on Page 2 of the Powerpoint.
Next look at the image of the inside of a red cabbage on page 7. Look at the detail of the shapes and colours in the image. Next look some examples of drawings of the inside or outside of some fruits and vegetables on pages 8 and 9.
Your task is to find an interesting fruit or vegetable. Have a go at doing a careful observational drawing of this. You could do the outside, or cut it in half and draw this.
Use colour if you have pencils or paint at home. Try another drawing, perhaps of one small close up section of the same object.
Spend time practising your times tables. You can chant them, write them out, make flash cards or try playing some games on the computer. A good website is saved below:
