Hi Everyone Another week over and done with. They are flying by at this stage. I was going to move on to the area of a circle in maths today but I think that the circumference might have been tricky enough so will practie that for another day. Leave me a voice note to let me know how the maths is going for this week please. I hope you all enjoyed Wellbeing Week and did some nice things to take some time out and relax a little. Ms Power and Mr McGrath put in lots of work this week coming up with lovely lessons. Today is 'Feel Good Friday'! I hope you all have a great weekend.
Chat to you on Monday

Maths: The Circle- Circumference
I think we might spend another lesson practicing the circumference before we move on to area. I will do area with you on Monday. If you need to watch the video from yesterday again please do. Otherwise complete the worksheet in your copies. Make sure to check the units before starting each sum. Please send me a comment letting me know how you are getting on with this. I know it can be a little difficult-it is first year work but i think if you can learn the formulae now it will really help you next year.
Answers for this week are in a video posted below
English: Vocabulary and Grammar
In Starlight I want you to complete the two vocabulary exercises C and D (please write full sentences for D) I also want you to complete the two star activities at the end of C and D.
Music: The Orchestra
Listen to the piece below entitled 'A Young Persons Guide to the Orchestra' Name as many musical sections of the orchestra as you can and the instruments in each. Use the posters attached to help you.
Art: Wassily Kandinsky: Circles
Kandinsky was an artist in the early part of the 20th century that used abstract concepts. He was also renowned for using 2 dimensional shapes. In particular the circle in his artwork. We have been looking at the circle this week in maths and I have included two of his famous works to inspire you. Composition VIII and Circles in a Circle. Use these pieces to inspire your own creation. Just look at his precision and accuracy and his use of line and shape. You can use whatever medium you have at your disposal! Have fun.
