WALA Georgia O'Keeffe

This half term, we will be creating artwork in the style of Georgia O'Keeffe.

Your first task is to create a Research Page all about her life and work. We would like you to include images, facts and your thoughts on her work. Be as creative and imaginative as you like! Use lots of colours and different fonts! Use the PowerPoint below to find out more about her. 

Take a look at an example research page below. We can't wait to see yours!




WALT add fractions

Zoom 1

Today we will be learning to add fractions together. Take a look at the image below:

As you can see from the image, when adding fractions you only need to add the numerators (the top value). The denominator (bottom value) must remain the same. IT DOES NOT CHANGE.


If you look at the image below - can you spot what Tiny the Tortoise has done incorrectly?

As you can see Tiny the Tortoise found the total of the numerators and the denominators, he should only have added the numerators and left the denominator as it was.


Use this image below to help you see this method:

WALT: recognise how an author creates an atmosphere

Zoom 2

Today we will be looking at how authors use different vocabulary when creating an atmosphere for a setting description.


Take a look at the example below:

The setting description is tranquil and serene (peaceful) because the author has used words such as little ripples of silk, serenely, rippled toast, tender glowThese set a calm and peaceful atmosphere as the author admires the beauty of the forest in the morning sun.


Task: Read the 4 setting descriptions and decide whether they are dark and threatening or tranquil and serene. Copy any words that tell you this onto the correct zone of relevance.

RED - All words welcome (okay words)

Orange - Better words but could be improved.

Green - Select for effect words - very descriptive


If you are finding it tricky, use the words provided and put them onto the correct zone of relevance.
