Art WALT use shading to create depth.

 Put last week’s shading skills to use by drawing spheres. How 3D can you make yours look?

Music WALT create a soundscape.


Go for a walk and sit in your garden for a while. Make a list of the different sounds you can hear outside. How would you describe each sound? Were they long? High? Low? Quiet? Rustling? Surprising?


Choose 2 sounds that you heard and find a way of representing using your voice or objects you have around the house. Think carefully about what sort of instrumental/vocal sound or combination of sounds is best for what you are describing.


Finally, perform your soundscape to a member of your family. Can they guess what sounds you’re trying to recreate?
