Task 4 Healthy eating colouring sheets

Art 

We are going to be looking at Jean Metzinger again this week but focusing more on making mosaics. Read this PowerPoint for more information. 

A Mosaic is made by placing lots of small pieces of a material onto a surface, so that together they create a pattern or picture. We are going to stick small squares of colour onto the page, leaving gaps between them. You might need to cut some of your squares into triangles to create certain shapes. Using lots of similar colours next to each other can be very effective in a mosaic. When you stand back from the image, the colours work together to make a vibrant picture. You might want to make your own landscape design or use the photographs for inspiration. 

DT

His art style was called ‘Neo-Impressionism.' This art was inspired by artists such as Monet and Van Gogh. They also often painted landscapes and tried to capture light. 

They thought that colours could often look murky or dull in paintings. They wanted to create even purer, brighter colours in their work, so began leaving gaps between colours. 

Using this sheet of squares can you create a beautiful landscape? Can you use several different greens for grass, and several blues for skies? Use these landscapes images as inspiration or look at some photos of places you have visited or even design your own landscape. 

For extra challenge try designing a landscape using triangles or hexagons

Read this PowerPoint about Vincent Van Gogh, then watch this clip it asks you to click. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/z4pvcdm 

 

Van Gogh used oil paints, but we can use acrylic or poster paints. Try not to add water as we want the paint thick. Try to use bright colours and thick, visible brushstrokes. Can you use different shades of the same colour to create nice effects, try to use round marks for clouds and straight for the grass. Use can use this ‘Landscape activity sheet’ to help you or create your own background. Use this photograph of his painting ‘ Plain near Auvers’ for inspiration.

The patterns this week are: or spelled a 

all, ball, small, talk, walk, also, always 

 
There is a handwriting practice sheet for this week's spelling words and some colouring pages, try to improve your pencil control by colouring in as neat as you can. 

 

Grammar focus – conjunctions. See lesson pdf and worksheets

 

Task 1 

Use the choice board on Seesaw or the following link (this opens a range of websites as it is clicked, these have been checked but, as always, please ensure children do not move onto other clips from these without your supervision).

https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/e/2PACX-1vTBZCmqo5xpKtRCQoqKR_b9FZ6qLtLdcPiwqDuXPPxK2Cj7j5IMSYhR-4Q5M5OTnyQ4mD22n_bQLjuk/pub?start=false&loop=false&delayms=3000 

When you click the image of a sea creature you will be taken to a new choice board where you can find out more information by clicking the images. Here you might see clips or websites to help you learn some interesting facts. Try to explore more than one sea creature, before deciding on your favourite or the one you know most about. You can make some notes that will help you. 

 

Task 2

Create a factual piece of extended writing, this can be built up over a few days. Children to try to write a report about their chosen sea creature (just like we did about African animals). Starting with a title, and subtitles to separate different bits of information., these can be questions such as What do they look like? What do they eat? What are their special skills or features? Other interesting information! 

We will be asking you to continue this next week, moving onto to another sea creature from the choice board to create another page in your fact file. 

Try to encourage developing detail and thought by asking children to use a conjunction in some of their sentences --> so, but, if, when, because 

For example: A dolphin is a light grey underneath their body so it is harder for predators to see them from below. 

Please encourage children to check capital letters and full stops after each piece of writing. 

Please read this example text of a sea creature fact file. This will show the children the format of the report and the sort of information that they can include in their own ones.

Act out a story 

Have a go at acting out one of your favourite stories. You could try doing this with an adult or a sibling. Read through a book and say words that a character says out loud. Try to use a character voice to make it sound like them. Can you use any props to help you with your acting? Perhaps you could practice acting out the whole story and then put on a show for someone in your house or video call a friend or relative. This has been set as a Seesaw task so that you can upload a photo or video of it once you’ve finished it if you would like to. We would love to see your show!

You can use the facts from the reading activity too if you like.

Playdough fractions 

It would be brilliant if the children could use playdough to practice what they are learning about fractions in a practical way. If you don’t have any at home, you could follow this recipe to make some. Ask your child to form the dough into a ball and then make a flat disk like a pizza. Using a ruler or other straight edge, they can make lines on the ‘pizza’ to show the following fractions: 1/2, 1/4, 2/4, 3/4, 1/3 and 2/3. You can challenge them to show different fractions such as fifths, sixths or eighths. This is activity has been set as a Seesaw task so that you can show us about what you have made if you would like to.

Year 2 Home Learning Activities

Term 5, Week 1 (20/04/2020) 

Topic: Under the Sea

 

Dear Parents,  

We have created a timetable of suggested home learning activities for next week. Please continue to upload any learning activities to Seesaw if you would like to do so. However, there is no expectation of this. Please do as much as you are able to do and work at a pace that suits your family life at this time. Our priority is for you and your family to keep safe.   

We are aware much of the work we are setting is based around using technology, this allows us to continue to monitor your child’s progress and maintain that connection between them and us; we are aware that this may be difficult for you to manage or indeed you may prefer to be less ‘screen’ based. Feel free to adapt any activities to make them practical or paper based to suit your needs. Where possible we will try to attach documents to the email and make copies available on the website for you to download and print at home. Additionally, here are some recommended 'non-screen time' activities that you might like to try too.

Please do email us using the class email address if you would like any support.   

Many thanks,  

The Year Two Team
