Throw a dice and count the number of dots on it. What is one more and one less than this amount? Write the numbers on the sheet or in your book.
Challenge: Use two dice and work out what is one more and one less than this amount.
Expressive Arts and Design
Today we are going to learn about the technique that Van Gogh used to paint his portraits and then you are going to use this to paint or colour in your portrait or self-portrait that you drew yesterday. Look closely at Van Gogh’s self-portraits above. He used lines or marks to create the effect in the painting.
Practice painting or drawing lines on a different piece of paper before you add them to your drawing. What sort of lines can you make? Wiggles, curves, straight, thick, thin, sharp or soft lines?
Think about the colours you want to use to create your picture and have fun!
Optional Additional Activities
Create Your Own Number Line
You will need:
- 21 Lolly sticks
- 21 cake cases
- Play dough or a container of mud or sand to stick your number line into
Write one number from 0-20 on the bottom on the inside of the cake cases. Glue the underneath of each cake case to a lolly stick.
Push each lolly stick into the play dough or sand or mud to make your number line.
Build a Birdhouse
You will need an orange juice, milk carton or similar. Wash it out and ask a grown up to help you cut the sides out like in the photo. Make sure that you leave the bottom of the carton on so that you can place food in it for birds to eat.
Paint or colour in your carton and use string to carefully hang it from a tree. Place food in your birdhouse and wait for the birds to come!
