Purple Mash: Common Exception Words Quiz 4

Other Learning Activities

 

We would like to continue working on our healthy eating topic this week.

Task 1

Imagine that you are a top chef opening up a brand new healthy restaurant.

This restaurant need to serve tasty, healthy meals that have a good balance between the food groups that you looked at last week.

There are two activity choices for this task:

Design a plate of healthy food (Be sure to make sure that they are foods that people would like to eat together. I don’t think strawberries would work well with Spaghetti Bolognese!)

Or

Write a menu for a 3-course meal (Starter, Main Course and Dessert), ensuring there is a healthy balance.

Task 2

Choose a piece of fruit or a vegetable to sketch. If you do not have one, choose another type of food.

Watch this video to refresh your memory of the sketching techniques we have worked on. There are also some top tips especially for drawing fruit!

Remember- light pressure and soft strokes.

Have a go at sketching what you have chosen; think back to the shading work we have done in school and look carefully at parts of your food that are light or dark. You may choose to add colour using coloured pencil.

Task 3

Have a look at the PowerPoint all about fruit artist, Guiseppe Archimboldo. Have you seen any of his paintings before? Have you seen some that are similar?

Using fruit and vegetables (or any food items you have), create your own fruit face picture.

You may want to physically make your face on a table and then take a picture or you may choose to have a go at drawing it- the choice is yours!

Remember to take your time with your artwork. We can’t wait to see some of your masterpieces!
