Monday 18th May

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 18th May, 2020 and it is another beautiful day.  I hope you and your family were able to get out for a little walk over the weekend.  Did you manage to find any trees that you recognise?  In our garden here, I have noticed the trees very quickly getting more and more full with leaves.  What type of trees do you think they are?  Deciduous or ever green?  I have also been planting a lot in my garden and it's growing very well.  Someone ate one of the cabbages...  I wonder who could have done that?  Perhaps one of the garden gnomes?!  I've taken some pictures below.  What do you think is growing? 




































So - any ideas?  I will tell you tomorrow.




Below is another letter from Miss Pluckrose.  I am finding so much out about Miss Pluckrose that I didn't know before!  Have a read of the letter after you have finished the morning message.

Remember to do Monday's Liturgy with your family and if you have one, light a candle.


Have a lovely day.


Fact of the Day!

The nose can detect a trillion smells! 




Start the day at 9am with PE with JOE





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.





Read through the Monday Morning Liturgy with your family.

Activity 3 - Music Break

Go to Ms Hume's Music Page and have fun joining in with her latest music session at the very bottom of the page:

Activity 4 - Art

Plants have been used by many artists as inspiration for their work. Why do you think that is?  Today we will look at some famous works of art by Monet, Klimt and Van Gough who have all been inspired by nature.


As you are doing art today, listen to some calming music to help you as you paint.


1.  Read through the Plants in Art lesson.


2.  Read through Paint a Still Life below.  Today, you are going to make your own still life using plants!  Look at Cézanne's example:


You will need:

  • Flowers and/or fruits and vegetables
  • Paint and paintbrushes - if you don't have these use colouring pencils or just a pencil
  • A pencil
  • Paper or canvas 



  • Put your flowers and/or fruits and vegetables on a table in an interesting arrangement. It will help to put some objects higher than others, so you could use a box or some books to support them. 
  • Use a pencil to lightly sketch the objects onto your paper or canvas. Don’t press too hard or the pencil marks might show through the paint. Remember that objects that are closer to you should be drawn lower down on your drawing. They need to overlap objects that are further away. 
  • One you have finished your sketch, use paint to complete your artwork. It is easier if you paint your background first, and then colour your flowers and/or fruits and vegetables once that is dry.
