The RSPB are once again teaming up with the Cameron Bespolka Trust to bring you Wild Art 2020, and this year it’s even bigger! They are on the lookout for talented young artists to enter their exciting competition.

 

Your task is to create a piece of art inspired by nature – let your imagination run wild! There are two categories to choose from this year:

  • Real Life:entries using the more traditional approach of paints, pastels, acrylics, pens or pencil.
  • Go Wild:for those of you who want to ‘go wild’ in every sense of the word. To enter this category, experiment with textiles, sculpture, recycled and eco-friendly materials, collages – anything goes!

 

You can follow the link to the website to see some of last year’s winning entries: https://www.rspb.org.uk/fun-and-learning/for-kids/rspb-kids-competitions/wild-art/?channel=paidsearch&gclid=CjwKCAjwi_b3BRAGEiwAemPNU0MMSdcGaiBsMQKqmzBUdDtmCxdUtvdCyFmkKL0bNQxlRTCKX6du5BoCgI8QAvD_BwE

#PinYourThanks

 

We know that lots of our families would like to say thank you to others who have helped over the last few months. From the postman who delivered cards that cheered us up, to a neighbour who has done some shopping, to a doctor or nurse, a friend who called for a chat etc.

 

PinYourThanks are inviting you to enter a competition to design a pin badge to say thank you to someone who has helped you (or your wider family) over the last few months.

 

The winning entry will be turned into a real pin badge and sold, alongside other badges designed by national treasures including Ringo Starr and Joe Lycett. Every pin badge sold raises money for NHS Charities Together and Volunteering Matters.

 

Use the attached template to design your badge.

Send me your completed designs on Showbie or via email by Friday, 10th July 2020 so that I can enter them for you!

Online Activities / Live Lessons

English

Click on the link to go to today’s BBC Bite Size English lesson. Today’s focus is on verbs.

Read through the examples and have a go at the activities about using verbs in the past and present tense.

 

Activity 1: Writing homophone action words

Homophones are words that sound the same but have different meanings. To practise them, have a go at playing Small Town Superheroes. Go to the ‘Steve’ section and play the ‘Homophones’ mini game.

Once you have played the game, try the following:

  • Think of ten homophones. At least four of them should be action words.
  • Cut some paper into small pieces and write a homophone on each side. For example, write and right.
  • Show one side to somebody at home and see if they can guess how the other homophone is spelt.

Here are some words to get you started: Write, buy, sun, be, to.

 

Activity 2: Writing some action words.

See if you can write an alphabet of action words.

  • Create a list of all of the letters of the alphabet.
  • Next to each letter, write one action words that begins with that letter.
  • Include the past, present and future tense of each word.

Here are some to start you off:
A - acted - acting - will act
B - bounced - bouncing - will bounce
C - crawled - crawling - will crawl

Once you've finished, you could draw some illustrations next to some of your words.

 

Activity 3: Let’s describe dancing.

Watch the short video called ‘The Grasshopper Song’.

Did you notice how all the grasshoppers, bees, spiders, centipedes and other minibeasts were all dancing?

Think about some of the words that were used to describe how they danced.

  • Write sixe sentences describing a dance the minibeasts could do.
  • Make sure you include verbs such as: point, spread, lift, shake, jump or spring to start your sentences.
  • Try to include a range of tenses in your sentences.

Here are two examples to start you off: 

  • The grasshoppers were dancing by jumping all over the green, crunchy leaves.
  • The spider crawled over the leaf with a spring in its step.

Think about the equipment: 

How is it used? What size is it? What shape is it? Is the colour important? What materials is it made from?

Activity 1: Imagine you are a teacher and you are teaching someone how to write an exciting sentence.  Start by thinking about three things that you should always do when writing a sentence, you could write these down, or just tell someone at home.  Then think of two more tips explaining what you think makes a sentence sound exciting, e.g. using adjectives to add description.

 

Activity 2: Take a look at the incomplete poem and see if you can add in words to complete it! I have also attached this and uploaded it to Showbie.

 

Activity 3: Now have a go at writing your own poem that counts up to, or backwards from ten! It could be about absolutely anything and can be as silly as you like.

Remember –

  • It doesn’t have to rhyme, but it can if you want.
  • You should start each sentence with a number.
  • Remember to make sure you’re using capital letters and punctuation correctly.

Creative Afternoon

 

‘Arrival of the Bridegroom’ 1933

 

 

What do you notice about this picture?  Why do you think those colours are used?  What do you think about it and why? 

 

Your challenge today is to take your pencil for a walk to create your own interpretation of this picture.  Below is a link, which shows you how Klee created this picture.  Remember, it’s your interpreation, so you can use different colour patterns. 

 

https://artprojectsforkids.org/paul-klee-drawing/

 

Or

 

‘The Goldfish’ 1925

Look at the picture.  What effect does the dark background have? There are lots of fish, how do you think the other fish feel about the goldfish? What makes the goldfish stand-out? What techniques you think Klee might have used to create the goldfish painting?

 

 

Read the following link with information about this picture http://www.artchive.com/1925/klee.html

 

If you have them you could use wax crayons or oil pastels to cover the whole page in a mix of bright colours, then cover the page with black oil pastel so there’s no colour seen. Using a paperclip that has been unravelled, scratch at the page to make a shape and the colour will be revealed.  Remember to be safe when using this!

Or you could create a drawing with bright coloured wax crayon or oil pastels, where there are some white bits left. Using a black water colour, brush over the page to create the background – the oil should resist the paint and show up.

 

If you don’t have any of these, no problem, simply using colouring pencils, felt tips, paints, sharpies, whatever you have that can be used to create colour and away you go.  

 

We have been creating different types of art using Klee’s styles. Pick your favourite piece and tell me why your prefer it?   Which was the easiest to create and why? Which had the nicest effect and what made it so good?

Creative Afternoon

 

Have a look at the ‘What does a paramedic do?’ presentation. Talk with someone at home about the job of a paramedic, nurse or doctor. What do they do? How do they help us? What equipment do they have? 

 

Have a go at creating your own ambulance at home using recycled materials or by using the 3D ambulance template that I have attached!

 

Or

 

You could write a diary entry of a day in the life of a paramedic. Think about what it might be like to drive the huge ambulance, who you might help and the people that you might meet along the way! I have attached a writing border with lines if you would like to use it, or just use a pen and paper at home!

 

Remember to send me a photo of your ambulance via Showbie or my email! Or even better, with the help of your parents and your e-safety knowledge, share your creations on Twitter. Don’t forget to tag us @WalfordSchool so that we can see your amazing work too!

To be rescued, you need to write a secret message for help, put it in a bottle and throw it in the sea! Hopefully it will wash up on the shore and someone will find it! You could create your own message and put it in a bottle at home, or use the template that I have uploaded.

 

You might like to think about some of these questions to help you…

  • What were you doing when you were captured?
  • What does the boat look like? Does it have a flag that you can describe?
  • What do the crew look like?
  • Where are you being kept on the ship?
  • How are you being treated?

 

Remember to try and include all of the things that we have been learning about this week e.g. adjectives, exclamations, commands and questions! For an extra challenge, see if you can any of our Words of the Day from this week!

 

Phonics

RWI speed sound lessons will now be available at 9:30am. If you have been following along since the start set 3 sounds have now all been covered so will start repeating.

  • Does it live there all year round? For example, in Autumn, swallows from the UK make their way back to Africa to spend the colder months there! 
  • What kind of habitat does it like?
  • What does it eat? What does it need in order to survive?
  • Does it have any special features, like an extra big beak, that helps it eat?
  • Can it fly? How does it move/travel? 
  • Does anything eat it- or is it top of the food chain?

 

You can present your facts in any way of your choice… a video, poster, booklet- anything!

Creative Afternoon


Your task today is to map your local wildlife. You could do this anywhere- on a walk, in your garden or even looking out of your window. 

 

On paper, draw a rough sketch map of the area you are going to explore, and map where you see the wildlife. Think about the key features of the area e.g. river, grass, bird feeder, bushes, trees, flowers, ponds and draw these on to your map first… 

 

Below is an idea of what a sketch map might look like… you do not need to include street names in your map as it is likely to be a smaller area! 

As you explore, note down the wildlife that you see and label it! For example, if I saw a dragonfly by the pond, I would mark the pond with an X and draw or write ‘dragonfly’.

Online Activities / Live Lessons

English

Today we are going to be doing some more work on commands. Work your way through the learn screens and have a go at some of the activities.

 

Activity 2: Writing pirate commands

Imagine you are the captain of a pirate ship. Arrghhh. You'll need to be very bossy and give lots of commands to make sure the other pirates are doing what they are meant to be doing. 

Write four command sentences that a pirate would use. 

  • Make sure you use capital letters at the start and correct punctuation. 
  • Use the word and in your sentences to join ideas together.

Here are a couple of examples to help you:
Drop the anchor and load the cannons.
Collect my treasure and bring it to me.

 

Activity 3: Command sentences in jobs

Think about people who need to use commands in their job. 

Mums and Dads give commands all the time, so do teachers, police officers, chefs, doctors, hair dressers and even football managers.

1. Pick a job and imagine you are training somebody new to do that job.
2. Write the title 'How to be the perfect _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _'
3. Under the title, write five command sentences explaining what they need to do. 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zb7xprd

Write a description about the captain of the pirate ship. See attached sheet.

Remember to try and include:

  • Adjectives

This afternoon, your challenge is to create a habitat for some local wildlife… you may want to create a minibeast hotel, a bird nest or even a hedgehog hide! I have included some pictures below, but there are lots of ideas that I am sure you will come up with yourselves!

 

 

 

Try and use as many loose natural materials as possible. You may want to collect materials on a walk or using things around your garden! When you are finished, you could put your habitat out in your garden or somewhere on a walk for the wildlife to enjoy.

He was so gifted that he began to play the keyboard at the age of 3 and started to write his own music at the age of 5! Mozart’s music is still listened to today, I wonder if you will recognise any of his music?

Find out more about him and listen to some of his music by clicking on the link below.

Now let’s create some music of our own! 

 

Find a couple of teaspoons and enjoy this fantastic “Concerteenies” home concert by beatboxer James Lyons. Learn to beatbox and listen to lots of instruments. You can join in with your voices and your teaspoons!

Today we are going to have a go at writing some diary entries.

Follow the link to take you to the BBC Bitesize website.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zvr6pg8

 

Activity 2: Think about the different things that you have done over the past week. This could be things that you have seen, things that you have heard or even school work you have done. 

Then, take a piece of paper and fold it into 4 sections. Label each section with a different day of the week – don’t forget your capital letter! Then in each section, write four things that you did that day. You could even try to circle the verbs that you have used.

 

Activity 3: Now using your plan, create a diary entry that outlines the things that you’ve done over the past week. If you can’t remember what you did, you can include things that you would have liked to do!

  • Write the first day of the week as a heading and then write two or three sentences explaining what you did on that day. Try and include some interesting verbs in there too.
  • Try to use joining words like and, because and when in each of your sentences.
  • Once you've written your first diary entry, write the next day and continue until you have all seven days.

Zoom Day!

 

Good morning, Class 2!

 

Well done for being so creative yesterday! I had so many people send me pictures of their drawings, painting and crafts! They were all beautiful.

 

Today is our Zoom Day! I am looking forward to seeing you all at 2pm. I will send you the code for our Zoom chat on Showbie, and if you haven’t joined us before, remember ask an adult to send me permission!

Today we are going to be looking at handwriting and using adjectives. 

Click on the link to go to the BBC Bitesize page.

 

Activity 1: Handwriting – Can you form the 1 armed robot letters correctly? Try practising them by drawing 7 big boxes and writing a different one in each box. Then, go on a hunt around your house or garden to see how many objects you can find that contain each letter, when you find one, add it to the correct box.

 

Activity 2: Imagine you’re making am a poster for a missing monster. First, decide what your monster looks like and then draw a picture of him. Then, add labels to the different parts of the monster to describe all of his features. Try to include at least six labels on your monster and see if you can use multiple describing words together. For example, ‘seven, long pointy fingers’ or ‘thick, greasy blue hair’.

 

Activity 3: Use your poster from activity two to write a paragraph describing your monster. You have already labelled your drawing, so you can use these labels to create sentences!

  • Make sure you use capital letters and full stops in your writing. 
  • Be sure to include adjectives (describing words). 
  • You could also describe how your monster behaves; what it eats, what it drinks or what it likes to do.
