Monday 15th June

Good Morning Key Stage 2!

As always - please remember to just manage what you can and take things at your own pace. There is no expectation that you need to complete absolutely everything, everyday.

I hope you had a wonderful weekend and had an opportunity to rest and refresh ready for another week of virtual learning. Thank you for sending your amazing stories through. I have uploaded these onto the virtual gallery. I have also collated a shared story with bits from lots of your work. This can also be found on the virtual gallery.

Don't forget to log on to TTRS and Spelling Shed!

Put your dancing shoes on and have a go joining in with 'The Greatest Showman' to get you warmed up and ready for the day.

English - Writing

As you know, our topic work is a study of Europe or North America, depending upon if you are in LKS2 or UKS2.

By the end of this week, we will have written our own leaflet all about a country of your choice. We will build this up slowly, step by step through the week. Today I would like you to research a country of your choice. Don't worry about presenting information in anyway, just learn the information so that you are able to use it later in the week.

If you are in Year 3 or Year 4, choose a country from Europe to research.

If you are in Year 5 or Year 6, choose a country from North America to research.

Maths

Our maths lessons will be split in two this term. If you are in Years 3 or 4 you need to look for the heading LKS2, if you are in Years 5 or 6 you need to look for the heading UKS2.

LKS2

Your unit of learning in maths for the next few weeks is 'geometry - angles and shapes'.

To get your brain warmed up, see if you can answer the following questions:

  • Which house would be good in a snowy country?

Year 3 - Today you are learning about comparing angles. Have a go at the questions.

Year 4 - Today you are learning about identifying regular and irregular shapes. Have a go at the questions.

Topic/Creative

This afternoon we are going to continue with our art project.

LKS2 - Impressionism

Today you will need:

  • paint
  • paper
  • something to lean on (an easel or a table)

Impressionists often used the impasto painting technique. This means applying the paint thickly so that it looks textured and opaque. When the paint is dry, it can look like the paint is coming off the canvas with the brushstrokes clearly visible. Using short, thick brushstrokes helped them to create a 3D effect and capture the essence of the object rather than the specific details.

LKS2 Task

Experiment using the 'impasto' painting technique.

Get yourself outside, somewhere with a good view and use the impasto technique to paint an outdoor scene. Think specifically about how you will capture the light and the weather (it doesn't have to be a sunny day).

I look forward to seeing your paintings.

UKS2 - Art in Fashion

Colour theory is all about matching the right colours with the right skin tone.

What is 'op art'? Why is colour theory important in 'op art'?

UKS2 Task

Create your own Op art design using line and colour in the style of Victor Vasarely.

Well-being/Mindfulness

If you managed to get hold of the ingredients, enjoy making cheese straws with Mrs Sephton.
