Monday 15th June

Good Morning Year 2

Challenge:  Listen to the audio of me reading the morning message.  Can you read along as I speak? 

Miss Writer's Morning Message

Today is Monday 15th June, 2020.  I hope you had a great weekend.  I know it has been raining a lot but the rain brings some really interesting changes in nature.  On Saturday, I went on a jog and what should I see - a HUGE cluster of mushrooms.  They must have grown in less than a week! 

Remember when we studied all kinds of mushrooms in class?!  I left my mushroom book at school so I can't identify them from that but I will find out what they are for you.  Remember - NEVER, EVER TOUCH WILD MUSHROOMS.


On Friday, Miss Pluckrose sent you her weekly letter.  When I have finished reading the morning message, open up her letter and read it with your family.  

Joke of the Day!

Thank you to Luke for today's joke of the day!

What is brown and sounds like a bell?



Start the day at 9am with calming Kung Fu yoga!


Morning Prayer

Father in heaven You love me. 

You are with me night and day.

I want to love You always,

In all I do and say.

I'll try to please You Father.

Bless me through the day.

Activity 3 - Art

Today, we are looking at the work of Paul Klee.  Paul Klee was born in 1879 in Switzerland.  He was influenced by lots of different styles of art - for example cubism, expressionism and surrealism.  He loved bright colours and lines and playing with lines!  Look at some of Klee's art work:



He liked to take a line for a walk and today you will be learning to take a line for a walk in the style of Paul Klee.


You are creating a line creature.


You will need:

  • Sheet of plain paper
  • Black pen or pencil
  • Crayons or paints
  • Wobbly eyes and glue - if you don't have them, you can draw a circle and put a black dot in the middle, cut it out and stick it on. 


Watch the video.  Remember when you draw your line monster - shut your eyes! 

Play some calming music as you work:
