LO: To use the layering technique
Today your task is to use your digital paint package on your laptop or ipad/tablet/iphone to create your own Arabian Desert Landscape Art based on the picture choices you made 2 weeks ago. I asked you to choose your favourite 4 images when you searched for Arabian Desert Landscape Art. You can copy one image you chose exactly or you can select the ground from one image, the sky from another and a tree from another then combine them to make your own landscape picture. It is up to you to select the components that will create the most effective landscape art. Use the layering techniques that you practiced last week to create the Autumn tree landscape. Build up the background first where no white background shows. Look just how many different shades of yellow there are for the sand or blue for the sky. Your digital art should contain all these different shades. Then start adding the finer details layer by layer. This should not take 5 minutes but more like 30 minutes or even more, to create a detailed and impressive piece of digital art. I am looking forward to seeing your work. Attach a copy of it to today’s blog or email a copy to me. Good luck!
LO: To use an online translation tool
Today in French we are going to learn how to use an online translation tool, similar to the dictionaries we use in class. The powerpoint below explains how to find the translation tool on the internet, and then gives you a table with a list of French words to translate into English. Your translations can be done on a word document, or into your books and sent in by email, or typed straight onto the French blog post. Please remember that as well as writing the translations, you need to practice saying the words out loud too!
