Literacy:

Listen to the story “Sky colour” by Peter H. Reynolds on YouTube click here

Look out the window or go in the garden with your child. Look at the sky – what colour is it?

Can you use paints to mix the sky colour? Each time they make a new colour, paint a blob onto a piece of paper. What colours did they mix to get that colour? Can you write the colours you have used next to the blob? E.g. “blue and white”. Explore the different colours you can make. What colours have you used to make the colours? Can you write a sentence about how you made the colour?

Maths:

The artist had 6 paint colours on their pallet. They squeezed 3 more colours onto the pallet. How many colours do they have altogether?

Solve this word problem using real objects to help you count.

Remember to write the addition number sentence using’+’ and ‘=’

Task:

Remind children of our focus for the fortnight – we have been making artworks using junk and rubbish to give the rubbish new life and stop it from going in the bin. We are helping to save the planet!

Look at the artwork by Alejandro Durán. He collects plastic bottles and other items found on the beach and organises them by colour. He then makes arrangements with these objects to make beautiful artwork from rubbish. He is cleaning the beaches and making art at the same time.

Can you collect objects from around your house and sort them out by colour? (lids, buttons, toys, clothes etc). Arrange the objects to make arrangements of colours!

Task:

Think about Alejandro Durán and his artworks which use lots of plastic bottles so get them off the beaches. There are many ways plastic bottles can be used to make artworks.

Collect up as many bottle lids as you can find and glue them (or place them so you can put them back on the bottles afterwards!) in arrangements to make a bottle lid mosaic. You could sort the lids by colour before arranging them to be like Alejandro Durán.

Task:

We have learnt lots about how plastic can harm sea creatures and how artists are trying to save the planet by re-using old plastic to stop it going into the ocean.

Can you create a picture of an ocean? You could use junk items from around your house, or paint/draw it if you have run out of rubbish and junk items!

Write a message to go with your picture which tells everyone to re-use their plastic items to stop them going in the sea.
