Stig of the Dump - Chapter 9 (part 1)

As a school, whether at home or in school, we have entered a sports competition against other schools in the area and would like everyone to take part.  It is based around basketball skills.  You do not need a ball or hoop at home and if you watch the video below it is explained how to complete the challenge.  Once you've practised a few times and perfected your skills, you can click on the link below to enter your results.  The other link is the flyer from SLSSP giving details about the event.  Good luck

This afternoon I would like you to research and look at canal art - The Rose and Castle movement (as it is called).  I have included a document below that has a number of pictures on to give you some ideas.  .


Its title is somewhat misleading; although both roses and castles feature in the designs, so too do a number of other flowers (sometimes real, sometimes imaginary), cottages, churches, rivers and lakes - anything in fact that could be part of a romantic landscape.


Roses & Castles covered virtually everything in or on the narrowboat – including the vessel itself. The drinking can, the horse’s harness, doors, fitted furniture, lamps, anything and everything was decorated with bright and cheerful chocolate-box designs.


It would be lovely if you can put your design onto a paper plate, but if you don't have one, you could draw around a plate onto paper and create your design onto that outline.

Mrs Dunford demonstrates the design a plate activity
