Morning Everyone!

Here are your tasks for today.

Can you make a list of adjectives to describe what it used to look like?

Write a short paragraph to describe the stadium as it used to look, and another to describe how it looks now?

Maths: Complete the Power Up challenges.

Art: Follow these steps to practise your sketching skills and draw a traditional Egyptian portrait.

Step 1- Sketch the outline. A traditional Egyptian image shows the head and lower body viewed from the side, with the eye and upper body viewed from the front.



Step 2- Use shading to add in the details. Add a headdress, a pectoral decoration and a tunic. Pectoral decorations are large ornamental necklaces which are worn over the chest. These necklaces often supported a large piece of jewellery like the one in the design above which is copied from a pectoral jewel discovered in the tomb of Tutankhamun.



Step 3- Decorate the background with hieroglyphics. Follow this link if you want to choose different hieroglyphics.



Step 4- Paint or colour the background in a yellowy colour. The edges can be rough to make it look like old papyrus paper. You could even stain it with tea bags and tear the edges to make it look old.



Step 5- Now add colour. Carefully fill in the details of the figure and hieroglyphs using a range of colours. Primary colours (red, yellow and blue) and secondary colours (green, orange and purple) with black and white, were often used in Ancient Egyptian painting.



Remember to take a photograph of your painting once you’ve finished to share with school!
