Cromer Bubble’s Monday Blog, 1st February, 2021

Good Morning Cromer Bubble,

Welcome to another week of work in lockdown.

I hope you are all well and staying safe in these crazy times.

Please keep in touch, I love to hear from you.

This is a copy of the timetable we are using in class.  I thought I would include it in case you wanted to follow the same timetable.  You don’t have to, that’s one of the good things about lockdown (one of the very few good things about lockdown), you can do it in whatever order you would like.


Power Maths Login and clicking on ‘Log in’.  Your child’s username is his/her first name, plus the first letter of your surname – all lower case, no spaces. (For example, if the name was Sam Brown, your username would be samb).  The password is his/her class name, all lower case (for example, cromer) and the School code is HCCT.  When logging you go to ‘My Stuff’ and you will find your child’s text book and workbook.

Music (Signed Performance): Create a signed song.


  • Compose and perform melodic signed song.
  • Create signed movements that communicate meaning and emotion of verses and chorus. 

In previous weeks, we have studied how performers sign songs rhythmically with hands, bodies and expressions in order to communicate a message. This week, you will choose a song of your own and create signed movements of your own to effectively convey the message of the song.

You can perform the song to an adult or sibling. Alternatively, ask an adult to film it and send it to me!

Computing: Touch Typing

Children will continue to brush up on their touch typing skills – this will be invaluable to them as they move forward in their education. Typing at speed will really set them up well for all those assignments they’ll need to write in secondary school!

Go to this website:

It’s an absolutely brilliant way of learning to touch type by having fun.  Many of you have tried it before and you love it so – enjoy!

RE: In this lesson, we will explore how we should treat people and reflect on our own views. We will also consider how Christians and non-religious people think we should treat people. Read through the lesson and complete the tasks on this worksheet. You will also need the story of the Good Samaritan during the lesson:

Art (Who was Piet Mondrian? )

Piet Mondrian (1872–1944) was a Dutch artist who remains well known for his abstract paintings, many of which use squares and rectangles. In 1917, he was part of a group of four Dutch artists called ‘De Stijl’ who all worked in an abstract style and reduced their paintings to straight lines, plane surfaces, rectangles and primary colours combined with black, grey and white. Mondrian’s designs have been used as inspiration for fashion, including six cocktail dresses designed by the famous designer Yves St Laurent, in 1965 

 Watch youtube clip for a quick summary of Mondrian’s style. Then go through Tate presentation:  

POP tasks 

Give an example of how Mondrian’s use of media and materials has led to his art being used by a fashion designer.  

Why did Mondrian use strips of transparent paper? What other materials did Mondrian use and how did he use them? 

Why is Mondrian’s painting Composition C with Red, Yellow and Blue typical of his style?  

Describe how Mondrian thought about his choice and location of colour.  

What important effects did Mondrian try to create with his artwork?  

Which two features did Mondrian continually explore with his designs?  

What changes did he make to the lines he used within his designs? 


I hope you get on well with this week’s work.  If you have any problems, please email me and I will do what I can to help.

Take care and stay safe.
