Art:

There has been a lot in the news recently concerning the Black Lives Matter movement.  Therefore, we thought that our schools could help to celebrate cultural diversity by looking at the works of three different black artists over the next three weeks. The first of these is KIMMY CANTRELL.

Can you use recycled materials to make a mixed-media sculpture in the style of one of Kimmy Cantrell’s masks?

 

Look at https://kimart.com/works/faces/ for lots of colourful examples of Kimmy’s amazing ceramic faces.

 

Also, watch this clip of Kimmy talking about what inspires him, the processes he uses to make a finished piece and how he became a ceramic artist.

And they have a new GO WILD category – 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!

Now have a look around your home to find some everyday objects you can make into your own musical instrument.

It is important to check with a grown up that you have permission to use the object and it is safe to use.

If you don't have empty jars, don't worry. Instead, perhaps use 2 saucepan lids as cymbals or an upside down saucepan and wooden spoon as a drum and drumstick. If you can't do this use your body as an instrument as you were shown in last week's lesson.

Now you are ready to join in with the orchestra. Play the second clip again and play along.

As Sam stood on the seashore with the waves gently lapping at his toes, he spotted something....it was an unusual and strangely beautiful shell. He dipped the shell in the water. As he rubbed it dry with the side of his sleeve, the shell started to glow in his hand and change colour, from purple to silver and back to purple again.

“Amazing,” said Sam. “I’ve got to show the others,” but as he dashed back to the harbour to show them, he heard a loud booming voice from behind.

“ARRRGGGG……. Shiver mi timbers, who has woken me up?”

Who shouted "Shiver my timbers!"?

Easter Holidays

Hello Year 2,  

Design and Technology: Next week we are on holiday, so instead of setting our daily lessons we will be asking you to complete a large scale design and technology project. Using any materials you can find around your house that are about to be recycled or thrown away, build a model of your choice. In the past we've had a theme but this time it can be anything: Build what you want! You may like to construct a castle for your toy dolls or action figures to live in, or a space ship, or even a monster! Please take photos next Friday and post them on the facebook page or email them to whitchurch_pri@bathnes.gov.uk. I'll put them on our website!

English

Who might live here? What is their name? Their age? What are they?

Do they have family? What job do they do?

Write a story about the person or thing that lives here!

 

Maths.

Using an Argos catalogue, magazine or any shopping website, spend up to £1000 on items for your bedroom! Each time you ‘buy’ an object, add it to your total. Stop when you get to £1000. Then, draw your bedroom with all the items in it.

Parents, you may need to help children round numbers to the nearest pound (so £19.99 would be £20) If you don’t have any magazines/ catalogues please ask your child what they would like and make a rough price up. Thank you.

 

Art

Washing your hands is more important than ever. Create a poster of this to remind people how to wash their hands, and how long for (20 seconds). Remember we’ve watched videos about this in assemblies, and there are posters around our school, so use these as an incentive.

 

Children, remember to ‘purple pen’ your work (using any colour!). Also, remember to read everyday and click on the link on the front of our webpage www.whitchurch primary.co.uk for more ideas!
