A message below from Mr. Broad. Miss Burton's homework is further down the page.
Last week we went to Glyndebourne to see 'Imago', a community opera written by Orlando Gough (composer - he wrote the music) and Stephen Plaice (librettist - he wrote the words).
It's a 'community' opera because creating and performing the work involved people from the local community as well as professional artists, singers, musicians and technicians.
What do you remember about the performance? What did you like? What did you not like?
Write yourself some notes, ready for when we have this conversation.
Also, please answer these questions:
If you could take part in a project like that, what would you be interested in doing? Lights? Sound? Play an instrument? Conduct the orchestra? Sing and act on the stage? Make costumes? Design and build stage sets? How do you think these things all fit together, as the work is being created and then performed?
If you could talk to thecomposer, the librettist, or to some of the singers, musicians or technicians, what would you ask them?
Glyndebourne is famous around the world as a centre of excellence for music and drama. We're quite lucky to be nearby and able to visit.
Dear Red Admirals,
I hope you all have a lovely snow day off. Please can you do the homework below, and bring it in to school. I hope to see you all in school in the morning.
Yesterday we had a lesson on working out the fraction that was shaded and finding equivalent fractions.
Follow the link below to a Fractions activity (you do not need to print off the sheet; just write the answers).
Group 4: Write the fraction that is shaded.
Group 3 and 2: Write the fraction that is shaded, then write at least two other equivalent fractions.
Group 1: Write the fraction that is shaded, write at least two other equivalent fractions and then write the fraction in its simplest form.
Literacy / Topic:
Research and then present a short biography on John Lennon or another member of The Beatles (if you have already written a biography for John Lennon in class). You can present it in writing, as a PowerPoint presentation or on a voice recorder if you choose!
Choose your words carefully.
- Write a conclusion that reflects on the person's life.
Enjoy your day off and look forward to seeing you all soon,
