Art - 1 hr per weekTo link previous work of Jon Burgerman with the current theme of reflections try to produce unusual portraits using reflective surfaces. Think cutlery, curved glass and the surfaces of a car to distort and alter the face. Again you can use any media and materials you wish. Although photography, on a phone or camera, would be an ideal way of capturing your ideas.

Also continue to explore reflections in a wider sense to distort and alter our usual way of viewing the world. The outcomes you are producing are fantastic. Keep posting these on teams too.

Accelerated Reader
Don’t forget, you can always fill in time with a good reading book. We have an extensive Recommended Reading List on the website, all grouped by age.  The even better news is students can access Accelerated Reader at home to complete quizzes about the books.  More information about that can be found here

Exercise
If you are going to be in isolation in your home for a period of time it is important to keep active as much as possible to keep those muscles moving.  Our PE Dept has a couple of links on their Facebook page, however, there are loads of videos of Just Dance and Exercise Routine videos on Youtube which can be a fun aid to keep moving.
