WALT make an animal origami book mark

 

On our phone calls this week, lots of you asked for more craft activities. I have been inspired by all of your fantastic work this week on endangered animals and ‘Dread Cat’ to make animal origami bookmarks. I hope you enjoy making them!

They are all made in the same way. The only difference is the extra features that you can add. These are some of the ones that I made but you can choose whichever animal you like.

 

 

We would love to see your bookmarks! Please upload them to your Purple Mash files.

WALT understand the story of St George

 

Happy St George’s Day! Today many people across England celebrate England’s patron saint, St George. The flag of Saint George - a red cross on a white background - is the flag for England and is incorporated into the Union Flag (the UK's flag).

 

 

St George isn't just the patron saint for England. He also holds this position for Aragon, Catalonia, Georgia, Lithuania, Palestine, Portugal, Germany, Greece, Moscow, Istanbul, Genoa and Venice (second to Saint Mark).

Very little is actually known about George and there's a lot of stories about him that are full of myth and legend. Listen to the legend here:

St.George and the dragon

Activities

You have been set two 2Dos on purple Mash.

 

Activity 1:

Take a photo of yourself and become St George. Imagine what St George would say.

 

In your speech bubble tell us how you felt when you slew the dragon.

 

In your speech bubble answer these questions:

  • What was happening in the village before you arrived?
  • How did you feel when you were fighting the dragon?
  • How did you feel after you slew the dragon?

 

In your speech bubble answer these questions:

  • What was happening in the village before you arrived?
  • Why did you offer to help?
  • How did you feel when you were fighting the dragon?
  • How did you fell after you slew the dragon?
  • Why do you think you were chosen to be the patron Saint of England?

 

Challenge

Do your own research about St George’s Day. Can you find any interesting facts?

 

 

Activity 2:

 

 

On Purple Mash paint this picture of St George and the dragon. I really enjoyed using all of the different effects and I hope you do too.

WALT appreciate the natural world around us

 

Today is Earth Day. Earth Day is celebrated on 22nd April every year. It was started in 1970 and encourages people to think about how we can help our environment. We have thought of some fun ideas to help us explore and appreciate the natural world around us. We look forward to seeing the activities you get up to.
