Morning task


Today we are focusing on using the inverse operation (addition and subtraction). Watch the video below to help you and follow the slides which go through examples.

Inverse operations (addition and subtraction)

Literacy/Art/RE/PSHE! - Please email a picture of each piece of your work so that we can put it on a display.

Today, it is Holocaust Remembrance Day. As we have studied aspects of the Holocaust (Kindertransport and some of the persecution of the Jewish communities), we would like you to spend some time creating a response to how we can be an 'upstander' (someone who stands up for those being persecuted). 



Have a look at the guidance and ideas below. 

Have a look at these slides to remind yourself of what the Holocaust was

There are 2 tasks that we would like you to complete. 

The first task is blackout poetry.  This is where we take a text and colour out any words that we don't want to see, only leaving words that will make an impact. 

Try leaving the words that tell a story about what the Holocaust was or how people felt. You can use any text, but the one in the example is probably best.

If you don't have a printer, you could write out the words that you want to keep into a poem or shape. 


Have a look at the examples below to help you. 

Second Task

The national theme of the day is 'light in the darkness' and we would like you to create a piece of creative work based on this. 


First of all, you will need to have a think back to the ideas we thought of about how to be an 'upstander'. 

Have a look at the slides below to help. 

Then, have a think about how you could present this creatively, fitting with the theme of being the 'light in the darkness'. 


You could present it as a poster, art work, a model...the choice is yours! 


Some ideas: 

- How can you show areas of light and dark? Could you have a torch beam or a picture of a candle in the middle of your page?

- How could you present the words? Perhaps you could have the upstander words in the light; but have the bystander words in the darkness? Or put some of the words we learnt during our Holocaust lessons in the darkness? 

- How can you present this creatively? AND NEATLY? What resources do you have at home that you can use to do this? Pens/pencils/paint/coloured paper? 


Remember, we want to display this so please spend time on making it display standard.
