Lunch time! I hope you are having a tasty lunch today. Don't forget to have a break away from any screens so you are giving your eyes and brain a break! Enjoy your 45 minutes of lunch time!

Mindfulness time!

Use the mindfulness doodling sheets to pause and focus on being in the moment by concentrating on one task. This is a fantastic way to help you relax. This activity also helps you develop your fine motor skills and pencil control in a way that isn't handwriting! Think about how you are going to add patterns and colour to your doodles, you may wish to use some of these suggestions:

This afternoon is your Art lesson.

Last week you completed city skylines and they were amazing!

This week you are going to be creating American landscapes!

Ansel Adams is considered to be one of the greatest American photographers! He mostly made black and white photographs as he thought that colour could distract him.

Take a look at some of his artwork below:

Now, look at the photos below at all of the different landscapes, they're beautiful!

You can sketch, paint, or even create a collage of of a mixture of different landscapes!

Be creative and enjoy!
