how do you draw what hope looks like?
Hi Harley. I hope you are keeping well. I have a few ideas. Perhaps Hope could be in Spring with plants and flowers springing to life, or maybe seen in light, or perhaps looking positively at the future. Maybe take some time outside in the garden if you can, and just pause for a few minutes and have a think of some ideas.Have fun! Mrs Bacon 🙂
I think the poem is about hope. I think it is a message that everyone can hope. My favorite Line is “Hope shines in the darkness flees” because it makes me think that one day everyone will hope.
I am going to start drawing and writing a poem now.
Challenge can you get any of these poetic devices in? Rhyme, alliteration, similes, personification, rhythm or metaphor. I would love to see your drawing and poem. You can email me a picture when you are finished to firstname.lastname@example.org
Remember to complete your daily TTRockstars and you can always practise one of the maths skills using the question generator on mathsbot.com
Have a wonderful day!
Brilliant 360 tour of the amazon!!!
Lots of fun this morning!! Thank you
We estimated each jar and put them in order
To find out I filled the smallest and then passed the water to the next jar to see if it would fit.
I then used a jug and filled the jar then poured into it to measure
360ml / 0.36L
Needs 360ml to complete her drink
Great maths Jacob.Ordering the jars then from least to most you would just start at the bottom of your list and work backwards. Have a great day.
Mrs Bacon 🙂
I think the poem is about the fact that if you are in a hard time stay positive and look for The bright side of things.
My favourites line is “hope shines and darkness flees” for it is really inspirational and powerful.
Hi Freya. I agree with you. That idea of staying positive and looking forward is a powerful message for us all. Hope you are keeping well and enjoying some ‘outside’ time too.
Mrs Bacon 🙂
Hello Mrs Bacon It Is Owen Bygrave Saying Hello And I Miss You
Hi Owen. It’s lovely to hear from you. We all miss you too! 🙂 How are you finding the new school days? Are you trying the Joe Wicks workouts? I have done most of them, but to start with I needed a sit down after!
Enjoy the rest of your day. Mrs Bacon
That even in the hardest of times you should not feel down and blue and you should stay positive.
My favourite phrase is, “The seed becomes a golden flower of pouring light,” because it makes you feel like the world isn’t just encased in darkness but can be in light for such an insignificant thing to us, a seed.
It can seem there is nothing,
but nothing is never true,
for all the hardships that have to come there is still some hope in you.
What brilliant vocabulary you’ve used to explain you favourite phrase – ‘encased’ really encompasses the meaning, well done.
Your poem has given me goosebumps – what insightful words Isaac, i am truly touched by your poetry! Can you write some more?
It can seem there is nothing,
but nothing is never true,
for all the hardships that have to come,
there is still some hope in you.
top tip: I would split the final line so it is a 4 line verse and then the rhyme is clear on line 2 and 4. Excellent!
Oops I forgot to sign off Isaac sorry.
Good morning Isaac. You have shown a great understanding of the meaning in the poem. Super work. I love the poem you have written. I could see that up on the wall in school as a message to all. I hope you have a great day.Take some time to rest too. Mrs Bacon 🙂
Hope’s a feeling
That everyone should have
Hope’s like energy
Floating all around us
1. I read the poem aloud to my mum.
2. The poem is about hope and I think the message is ” believe that things can get better”.
3. My favourite line in this poem is ” and hope will give us power”.
I am going to draw what I think hope looks like.
I think that is a great line too Bella and what a great message for the poem to have! I would love to see what you think hope looks like. Send me an email if you would like to share it with me.
I found out all of these by filling drinking cups to maximum and then pouring that into a measuring jug to find out the contents of the drinking cup.
I estimate that my everyday water bottle is around 600ml.
Real Answer = 580ml.
I estimate that a drinking glass holds around 250ml.
Real Answer = 402ml, I think this is because of the shape of the glass which instead of just a plain cylinder, a glass sort of expands outward from a cylinder.
I estimate that a mug holds 150-200ml.
Real Answer = 310ml, I think this is because the mug looks small due to its width but the height is never really noticed.
Water Bottle 1st Place
Drinking Glass 2nd Place
Mug 3rd Place
Great estimating and measuring Isaac.
You were very close with your water bottle – I wonder if that’s because you use it everyday and so you are very familiar with it.
1. I estimated the jars from smallest to biggest.
2. I filled the smallest jar with water and passed it along to the biggest to see if it would over flow .
3. I measured each jar to see how much it could hold.
here are the results
Great maths work Freya. I love that you have converted your measurements from millilitres to litres, well done! How close were your estimations to your results?
I estimated each jar and put them into largest to smallest order I found out the exact measurements and put them in order
Miss Lowe needs 360ml more to complete her drink
Well done Klea, how close were your estimations?
I think its about don’t look at the dark side look at the bright side and positive side.
My favour line is also hope shines and darkness flees.
2 Miss Lowe needs 360ml
Knows no fear
Hope dares to blossom
Even inside the abysmal abyss
Hope secretly feeds
Super work this morning Eduard!
Could you create a piece of artwork that represents hope? You could make it look like a presentation piece? I know Mrs Byfield would love to receive a picture of your work, you can email it to her on email@example.com.
Enjoy the rest of your day.
The seasons because it is talking about walking through the snow in winter, a tiny seed that flickers is spring.A pouring light, a gift is summer, and bright feathers lifting is autumn.
My favourite line is “The seed becomes a golden flower.”
I added walnuts and seeds to my flap jacks.
I love your interpretation of this poem Rose. I like that line too because it shows how things grow and develop over time! Sounds delicious! Did you enjoy them?
I think the poem is about ‘hope’ because it says hope mostly in every line that you read. This poem really inspires me and gives a good felling of Hope. My favourite line was ‘that makes the world a maze’. The reason I chose that line was it makes me think that the world as really a maze……….ENGLISH………..
Super work this morning Eri! When we have a word of phrase that repeats we call it repetition. Have you had a go at the maths task yet? I wonder how accurate your estimations will be.
2. It is about joy and staying positive throughout the darkest of times so we can see a bright future for us.
The message is” whether you’re feeling sad or down, hope will over come that depression and fill it with happiness.”
3. my favourite line is” pouring light, a gift.”
I’m going to draw hope.
Well done Cadi. You have shown a good understanding of the meaning of the poem. Your maths is correct too. Did you try the estimating and measuring task? How accurate were your estimates? Enjoy the rest of your day. Mrs Bacon 🙂
1.I’ve read the poem out loud.
2.Its about hope.You should believe in hope.
3.My favourite is I hear a tigers roar.
1.This is the result of our experement
I’ve also done a poster of army ants.
Great work today Rhys! Why was that your favourite line? How accurate were your estimations?
I think the poem is about hope.
The message is to keep hoping.
My favourite line is “I need you to believe, Hope says.”
360 ml waters
I tried to put the jugs from the picture in order:
1) 2 jug, 2) 3 jug, 3) 8 jug, 4) 4 jug, 5) 1 jug, 6) 5 jug, 7) 7 jug, 8) 6 jug.
Well done, Elvin. It sounds like you’ve been very busy! Did you manage to measure the capacity of each jug in litres and millilitres?
I made a poster and found out some interesting facts out
Jaguars – They are found in Neotropical rainforest; they still live in the forest of the Caribbean Coast.
They look like large cats with spots.
Jaguars are carnivores.
The spots create it’ s own pattern that is unique to each animal.
Great choice of animal, Elvin – jaguars are one of my favourites. You’ve found some very interesting facts. I wonder what a ‘Neotropical’ rainforest is – can you find out?
Maths – 360ml
Geography – I thought the rainforest video was really interesting and I chose to find out about the jaguar. I traced a picture of one to create a fact file poster. I will email it to Miss Clancy.
Hi Isabella. Great maths! I know Miss Clancy will look forward to seeing your jaguar poster. I hope you have had a good day, and that you’ve had some rest/outdoor time too. Mrs Bacon 🙂
2. I think the poem is about hope.the massage is about that hope will win and darkness will flee.
3. My favourite line is “The sead
becomes a golden flower a pouring light, a gift.
Hope shines around us,
But darkness is darkness it’s, Just a fear black and miserable.
Every body doesn’t like it,
It’s horrid it’s just a dream, people scream out of their, lungs.
But me I like hope and I believe, in myself no matter what!
THERE WILL ALWAYS BE HOPE.
Brilliant Miriam, you really understood the message of the poem. Were you able to complete the maths task? I wonder how accurate your estimations were.
Thank you for sharing the video – Under The Canopy.
I used my mum’s VR Headset to watch it. It was awesome walking around my garden in the sun pretending to be there.
Stay safe and well!
Love from Amelia-May.
