Good morning Class 2!

Good morning from Mrs Pilgrim

After half term we are going to write the story of Jack and the Beanstalk. Today and tomorrow we are going to get ready for this by making a story map. Let's start by reminding ourselves of the story. Click on the Power Point below to read the story of Jack and the Beanstalk:
Click on the video below to watch me start my story map.

Now it's your turn! To start your story map, draw a large s shape on a plain piece of paper.  Then add pictures and labels to retell the story in the correct order. I only want you to go up to the middle of the story today as we are going to carry on tomorrow. Stop when you get to the part where Jack is hiding in the giant's castle.

Year 2:

Yesterday we learnt what an adverb is. We also learnt how to change adjectives into adverbs. Today we are going to practice what we have learnt. Click on the sheet below and have a go at completing each part. Remember, an adverb is a word that tells you more about how an action is carried out.





  • Can you tell what the painting is?
  • What does it look like to you?
  • What colours and shapes can you see?
  • How does the painting make you feel?
  • How do you think the artist felt when he was creating this painting?

He used warm colours didn’t he so maybe he was happy.


The painting is called Castle and Sun and it is by an artist called Paul Klee. He is famous for using a type of art called abstract art. This means it is art that uses the effect of colour, lines, tones and textures to create a picture. Sometimes it is hard to tell what the picture is. Does it look like a real castle to you? Compare it with the castles in the document below.

Let’s now think about how he created his painting. He has used shapes to build up his picture.

  • Can you see triangles, squares and rectangles?
  • What other shapes can you see?
  • What shapes has he put at the bottom of his picture?
  • What about the colours he has used – are these the colours of a real castle?

I wonder why he used these colours.


You are going to have a go at making your own version of Paul Klee’s painting. I have provided a sheet of shapes which you will need to print out. If you don’t have a printer you could ask a grown up very politely if they will draw some shapes for you to use to draw round. You will need squares, rectangles, triangles, circles, semi circles and maybe an arch. In the video the lady uses oil pastels and paint. If you don’t have these at home use colouring pencils instead or whatever you fancy. I can’t wait to see your finished works of art!


Now watch the video below to see how to do it!
