Main Lesson


Please relisten to the audio below.  While you are listening, please consider the following questions:

  • What does the author consider to be the main differences between the artists Raphael, Michelangelo and Leonardo? 

  • What was different in society during the Renaissance period compared with the Middle Ages that allowed artists such as these develop? 

Writing Task

Please copy your Leonardo biography into your Main Lesson book.

Drawing Task

Please complete your drawing, begun on Friday, to accompany your Leonardo biography.  If you didn't start this last Friday, I have again attached some images for you to choose from.











If you finished this drawing last Friday, please finish off your title page today.  Image is attached below.  

New Information

Please read the text attached below.  






Please listen to the audio below on the life of Galileo Galilei.  Your writing task tomorrow will be to write a biography on Galileo Galilei.  Like with the Leonardo biography, there is a lot more information brought in the audio than you will need to include in the biography.  You do not need to take notes today, however, once you have listened to the audio, please spend some time reflecting on what you have learnt about his life and which of this information you deem the most important to include in your shorter biography.  Remember, you are practising the skill of judgement or discernment.
