Monday 29th 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 29th June, 2020.  I hope you had a great weekend. It was lovely to speak with you all on Friday.  We will meet again this Friday in exactly the same groups at the same time. 

 

I have finally been able to start eating the lettuce in my garden and we have been making lovely salads!  One thing that I have noted though is that you must wash home-grown vegetables thoroughly.  I found a caterpillar and also a snail.  I took them both off but turned around and the naughty little snail had made his way up my bread basket!  

 

You've got mail!  On Friday, Miss Pluckrose sent you her weekly letter which I posted on the Important Updates page.  I have posted it here too for you to read with your family after my morning message.  

 

Miss Pluckrose has talked about the Summer Reading Challenge.  If you haven't taken a look at it, go to the website.  If you would like to sign up, make sure you ask Mummy and Daddy. The Challenge runs from 5 June to mid-September.

 

Have a lovely day!

Morning Prayer

Father in heaven You love me. 

You are with me night and day.

In all I do and say.

I'll try to please You Father.

Activity 2 - English

Today we are going to read a story called Maisie and the Dragon by Phillipa Danvers. 

 

Do you remember how we used to learn about prepositions of position in class? I would throw something across the classroom (very carefully) and we would describe where it landed. 

 

For example - I would throw Moji and he would land UNDER the table or BESIDE the bin or ABOVE the bookshelf.  Sometimes poor old Moji landed IN the bin!  You will be learning about these types of prepositions today!  Have fun.

 

1) Watch the video of Maisie and the Dragon.  What is your favourite part of the story and why did you like it?

2) Now read through the Question Booklet for Day 1 and answer the questions.

Activity 3 - Art

When Loïs Mailou Jones was little, she wanted to be a famous artist.   This was not an easy path for an African American girl born in the early 1900s.  She studied art in Boston and 1937 went to study fine art in Paris where she became a renowned artist and won lots of awards.  Later she came back to New York.  In 1941 she won an award in New York; however, New York was different to Paris and she wasn't able to collect her award because of the colour of her skin, so she sent a friend.  Eventually, she became a famous artist in America and also a lecturer.

 

Some of her works of art are at the Smithsonian American Art museum in New York.  You can read more about her life there.

 

 

 

Today you will draw a picture like Loïs Mailou Jones. 

  • What picture does this look like above?  Why?

 

You will need:

  • Ruler
