Today we are going to continue writing our poem -Ten Things in a Pirate's Pocket.  On Tuesday, in class we came up with these lines:
 
A treasure map, with x marks the spot.
A shiny sword.
Some precious gems and coins.
The eyeball from his enemy.
A colourful speaking parrot, called Polly.
 
You may have chosen a different character for your poem - a witch, or mermaid, or knight, or princess.  Picture your character in your head and think again about what items they might have in their pocket.  Write another 5 things that are in your character's pocket.  Try to use some adjectives to describe them.  Write each item on a separate line.

We are looking at using stencils for printmaking.  You will need a selection of small objects, such as - a cotton reel, lego, a piece of cardboard, bubble wrap, a plastic toy, a cup.  You will need primary coloured paint - yellow, red, blue and a paintbrush.
 
Today we're going to explore making marks by using stencils.  First, we are going to do reverse stenciling.  Place some objects onto a piece of paper.  Next, mix some ink or paint with water and put it in a spray bottle.  Spray the paper and objects with the inky water.  Take care when removing the objects so that they don't smudge.  Where the objects have been placed the paper should still be white. 
 
Next, we are going to make our own paper stencils.  Take a piece of paper and make a fold in it.  Then carefully tear or cut a semi-circle shape out of it, when you open the fold up you should have a circle.  Make lots of different-sized circles on your paper.  Then using some masking tape, stick the top edge of the stencil to your table, this will stop it from moving around.  Place a clean piece of paper under your stencil and using a stippling motion (dab, not brush) go around the outside edges of the circles you've just made, using primary coloured paint.  You can reposition your paper to make other circles, they can overlap if you want.  You can use the small pieces of paper you cut out to put inside the stencil to make other patterns.  Explore the marks and patterns you can make using your stencil.  There are some examples in resources.  Take a photo of your work and put it on Class Dojo.

We are looking at the poem - Ten Things in a Wizard's Pocket (see Resources).  Did anything surprise you?  What was your favourite thing?  This is a list poem, list poems don't always rhyme they are a list of things.  Notice how the poet described the things - it's not just a rabbit but a snoring rabbit.  We are going to have a go at writing our own poem based upon this poem  Think of a character - it could be a pirate, a mermaid, a witch, The Poggle.  Picture them in your head - what would be in their pocket?  We will write the first part of the poem today, so write  5 things in a list, one below each other.

We are starting an art unit on printmaking.  You will need a selection of small objects, such as - a cotton reel, lego, a piece of cardboard, bubble wrap, a plastic toy, a cup.  You will need primary coloured paint - yellow, red, blue and a paintbrush.
Printmaking is about making marks using objects to create a pattern or picture.  Today we're going to explore making marks with things you have around the home.  We are going to start with the lightest colour - yellow and then red, and finally blue.  Carefully brush the paint onto your object and press it down firmly onto your paper.  Explore what kind of marks you can make.  If you hold your object in a different place can you make a different mark?  You can overprint the yellow with a darker colour - you will still see the red as it is darker.  Finally make a textured surface - stick different kinds of paper onto a sheet - newspaper, sugar paper, cardboard, aluminum foil.  Repeat the printing process on the textured surface.  Think about which marks you liked the best.  Which surprised you?  In resources there is a photo of someone's prints, as an example, to give you ideas.  Take a photo of your work and put it on Class Dojo.
