Grebes Week Beginning 27th April

Dear Parents/Carers,

Thanks for supporting your children with their home learning. I have received lots of wonderful Great Wave pictures and Geography investigations. If you have done them and have yet to send them in, email them to Here is this week’s home learning:


Make a quiz about a country of your choice. Aim to write ten questions. Make sure you know the answers! You can present this in your own way – e.g. a handwritten list of questions, a poster, a Powerpoint, a video.

Tip: Put the easier questions first and the harder ones at the end. You may wish to make some questions worth more points than others.

Learning Objective: To imitate an artist’s style

This week’s artist is J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851), an English painter. Look through the examples of his work and see what they all have in common.

You are going to make a picture in Turner’s style.

  1. Decide on five features you think your picture will NEED to include. Look closely at the weather, the land, the water, the ships, the humans in his paintings. Also think about the MOOD these pictures create – how do you feel when you look at Turner’s paintings?
  2. Gather your toolkit! Turner used oil paints and watercolours. You could use sponges to create cloudy skies. If paints are unavailable, you could use pencils, crayons, pens, collage, even photography!
  3. Give your painting a title. Email it to Mr Leaver.

Take this further

Make a picture in the OPPOSITE of Turner’s style. What would it be like?!

Investigate Turner’s life. Why were his paintings so intense and full of danger?
