Science – How can you measure rainfall?
In this lesson you find out how to build your own rain gauge and how to measure the amount of rain that falls during one week.
Before you start the lesson talk about: Can you remember the last rainy day we had? What did the rain sound like? What was the ground like after the rain had stopped? What did it smell like?
Resources: pencil, coloured pencils, worksheet, plastic bottle, black marker pen, scissors (requires adult supervision), ruler, sticky tape
Geography – What is Africa Like?
In this lesson, we are going to be virtually flying to Africa! Today, we are learning more about this huge continent. First, we will be filling our brains with facts about the population and how many countries are in Africa. I am so excited that we will be looking at different foods which are grown in Africa and transported all over the world. Then we will be looking at the interesting animals and landmarks you could see if you visited Africa. Get your passport ready, let’s virtually fly to Africa
Art – Kimmy Cantrell
There has been a lot in the news recently concerning the Black Lives Matter movement. Therefore, we thought that our schools could help to celebrate cultural diversity by looking at the works of three different black artists over the next three weeks. The first of these is KIMMY CANTRELL.
Can you use recycled materials to make a mixed-media sculpture in the style of one of Kimmy Cantrell’s masks?
Look at https://kimart.com/works/faces/ for lots of colourful examples of Kimmy’s amazing ceramic faces.
Also, watch this clip of Kimmy talking about what inspires him, the processes he uses to make a finished piece and how he became a ceramic artist.
