Our artist of the term, is Piet Mondrian. What can you find out about him? If you are struggling, use the PowerPoint to help you with this. Can you re create any of his famous art?


Did you know that about two thirds of your body is made of liquid? This is used up by our body all the time, so it’s really important to keep it topped up. 

You’re going to make a tool to help you drink enough each day. Grab a water bottle or something similar (measuring 1 litre). Using a marker, mark three lines around your bottle so that it is split into four even sections. Make sure the lines are thick, so you can see them easily. If you do not have a water bottle, maybe you could measure approximately how many cups/beakers of water you would need to drink a day to reach your target of 1 litre.

To keep track, give yourself a target of how much water you need to drink each hour. 

Keep up the thirsty work! Why not use a calendar to mark off every day that you’ve drunk enough? How long can you last?


It's been a few weeks since Easter now. We would like you to consider what you know about this important festival. Can you record the Easter story in your own way? Perhaps you could draw your own comic strip or make a junk model to illustrate what happened. When you have done this, reflect on this question:

Is Easter a happy or sad time? What makes you think this?
