Practice your skills on Reflex.
Most of you have completed your initial tasks and learnt lots of new facts, but there are still a few of you who need to complete the first part of Reflex. Please make sure you are going on Reflex; it's such a good and fun way to learn all your times tables facts. Please let a member of the Y6 team know if you are having any trouble with this.

In Y6, we thought it would be a good idea to start a new creative topic. We’ve decided to look at art using plants and flowers as it is something which you should all be able to access and achieve at your own level. You can either use the plants and flowers that are growing in your own gardens or the local community or (if you are able) any that you see whilst you’re out taking your daily exercise.
Task 1: Pencil drawing
You will need plain paper, pencil (you could use art pencils if you have any) and possible a rubber.
Use a mobile phone or tablet to take photos or research black and white images of plants or flowers that are out in nature. If you don’t have a mobile device, don’t worry. You can either pick the flowers – make sure you ask permission first – or draw them in their natural habitat.
Carefully think about sketching the flower and the shapes of the leaves and petals. What other detail can you see? When you’ve carefully drawn the outline, you can begin to add tone by shading with your pencil only. Try to make your flower look 3D.
There are some examples in the attached document that you can use to help.
