Good morning everyone and welcome to Friday’s home learning activities.
Today I would like you to have a go at the sheets below looking at Horizontal, vertical, perpendicular and parallel lines.
A horizontal line is one which runs left-to-right across the page. In geometry, a horizontal line is one which runs from left to right across the page. It comes from the word ‘horizon’, in the sense that horizontal lines are parallel to the horizon.
In geometry, parallel lines are lines in a plane which do not meet; that is, two straight linesin a plane that do not intersect at any point are said to be parallel.
Perpendicular lines are defined as two lines that meet or intersect each other at right angles (90°).
Today in English I would like you to write down some instructions on how to correctly draw the symbols we looked at yesterday. You can then write a little explanation on how to correctly draw the symbol.

Sonia Boyce was born in London and describes herself as a British Afro Caribbean artist.
Sonia Boyce often feels different, being a Black woman in a mainly White country. A lot of her work shows her relationships with friends and family because these relationships have always made her feel less alone and less different.
She has always been keen to show positive (good) images of Black women in her work, painting herself in many of her pictures.
Her work often shows bold patterns and bright colours because this reflects her Caribbean family background.
Sonia Boyce works today as a lecturer in a university and makes art work exhibited around the world.
Have a look at some of Sonia’s work below.
In one of Sonia Boyce’s art works from 1990, she made The Ticket Machine.
On pressing the ‘Ticket’ button, a postcard popped out, explaining important memories and events that different people – strangers – had experienced.
Here is one of hers…
When I was a little girl I used to spend my summers with my aunt Mary. I remember her garden being huge. My sister and I used to go and pick raspberries off the bush and hide them in our pockets to eat later in the day. I can remember so vividly the colours and smells of my summers there. I remember sitting on floor in her porch, with the breeze whistling through the window. We would play Uno for hours, while our cousin would show off his talents on his guitar by strumming away. By far those summers are my happiest memories.
Your task today is to create a post card of one of your favourite memories.
You can describe your memory and then draw it.
Have a great weekend and keep smiling.
