Week 2 beginning 9th November 2020:


This week we are starting our topic 'People who help us'.


First, can you think of any people who help us? What do they do to help us? Do they wear a Uniform? If so, what does it look like, what colour is it? Do they have a special vehicle?


Then watch and listen to the reading of the book 'Emergency!':



Did you see any of the people that you thought of first of all?


Next, draw/paint/collage a picture of someone who helps us, think carefully about the colours you use.

After this, use various junk modelling materials to make your own Emergency vehicle. There are some ideas below to help you.

Have a look at the painting below. I wonder...what can you see? What colours can you spot? What do they think it is a painting of?



The painting is titled 'Starry Night'.

This week we are going to be drawing and cutting out circular shapes then painting them in colours to represent the night and the day. We will be focussing on colour mixing and complimentary colours.


Later in the week, we will be learning about the importance of Remembrance Sunday. We will start by watching  poppies:
Then we will discuss what we saw and what happened? W will be talking about when we first saw the poppies in the film clip?

After, we are going to make some poppies and memorial pictures of our own. Take a look at the examples below that we will be using as a guide.
