Monday 15th June

A royal job!

Good Morning Class 2,

Saturday the 13th June was Queen Elizabeth's second birthday. If you're lucky enough to be a queen you get two! I think everyone should have two birthdays, they are so much fun.

In order to celebrate the Queens birthday I thought it may be nice to design her a new crown or a birthday cake. You could even have a go at making them. I will make one and show you all what I have done and I may even get Honey and Esme to do something also.

You don't have to do this, only if you want too. I look forward to seeing what you have come up with.

Love from Miss Newton


Today you will be pretending to be Laurence Lowry, writing a letter to your friend who is also an artist. You will be telling him about your paintings. Lowry liked painting factories, look at these examples.

Here is an example letter to help you with ideas. Yr 1 have a version to help them with the basic structure. The planning sheet may be helpful, or you may just want to use the word bank and crack on! 

They are both below, 

Set out your letter as I have in the example, as if you were writing a real letter. The address is one of the houses where Lowry really lived.  Use your planning sheet and word bank and my examples to help you. 



Year 1:

This week we are moving onto learning about multiplication and division. We will start with adding equal groups today.

Year 2:

This week we are continuing to learn about multiplication and division.

If you finish your worksheet quickly, there are some good games on the website below to help you practice your times tables. Concentrate on practising your 2, 5 and 10 x tables first.


Today we are going to learn a little bit more about the famous artist LS Lowry. We are going to have a look at some of Lowry’s paintings and think about the colours that he used. I would like you to look at the PowerPoint below. It explains how Lowry used colour in his paintings.

Do you have some paints at home? If you do, I would like you to have a go at the colour mixing activity that is explained on slide 17 of the PowerPoint. Then, you could have a go at creating your own seascape painting using the colours you have mixed. 

If you do not have paints at home, don’t worry. You could have a go at using colouring pencils to mix some different colours. Then you could create your own Lowry seascape picture using colouring pencils instead of paint.
