Art-lesson 1: (Use PowerPoint for reference)
- Introduce art project “Re-born”
- Online research to answer 3 questions about plastic pollution.
- What is plastic pollution?
- What is plastic pollution doing to our planet?
- What can we do to try and stop plastic pollution?
- Discuss answers on slides.
- Introduce artists “Richard and Judith Lang.”, look through their work and answer questions (answers on next slide of every question).
Complete plenary quiz.
- Which is the hour hand?
- Which is the minute hand?
- What is the difference between the hour hand and the minute hand?
- How many numbers are there on a clock face?
Let’s recap our learning from Year 1 about o’clock:
– When the minute hand is pointing at the 12 we know it is an o’clock time.
– We look at the hour hand to see which number it is pointing at. This tells us the hour.
The time on the clock above is
Let’s recap our learning from Year 1 about half past:
– When the minute hand is pointing at the 6 we know it is a half past time. It tells us that the minute hand has gone halfway around the clock and halfway past the hour.
– We look at the hour hand to see which number it has gone past.
The time on the clock above is half past 2.
Now it’s time to apply! Write down the o’clock or half past time that each clock is showing below.
PE: Lesson 1
This term we are going to focus on athletic skills to prepare for sports day.
We are going to focus on:
3. Jumping in various different ways.
Remember we always start with a warm up!
Set up an obstacle course of different heights with 3-5 strides between them.
Child to jump over each obstacle counting the number of strides between each obstacle.
Keep the obstacle course the same or add more depending on the equipment available. Holding a bottle of water run over the obstacles, run around the final obstacle and run back to the start.
A non-chronological report is focused on a single topic and includes various facts about this topic. For example, about a country, animal, sport etc.
See resource named week 1 English Tuesday for examples of reports.
Now answer the following questions:
What are the similarities between the reports?
What are the differences between the reports?
Art lesson-2: (Use PowerPoint for reference)
Today we are going to compare the work of 3 different artists.
Richard and Judith Lang
They all show problems of plastic pollution in their art.
- Key questions to answer:
-What materials have they used?
-What are the similarities and differences between their work?
-Which artwork stands out the most to you and why?
-Which do you feel shows the problems with plastic pollution the best?
Using the interactive clock, make the o’clock and half past times below:
- 10 o’clock
- Half past 3
- Half past 5
- 12 o’clock
- Half past 8
- 6 o’clock
- Half past 10
What did you notice about the hour hand and the minute hand when you made 12 o’clock?
What happens to the hour hand when you make a half past time?
Have a go at the reasoning question below, using your knowledge from the question above:
Discuss: What is the worst wrong thing that anyone can do against you and why? E.g. lying, stealing and bullying.
Explain that prophet Mohammed (PBUH) who was the last prophet for Muslims, said that no matter what kind of person you deal with you should always be kind and reasonable.
Work with your family to think of and act out scenarios when it would be easy or difficult to be kind and reasonable. Also think about how your reasonable and kind behaviour affects the difficult person.
Can you identify the following features of a non- chronological report?
- Technical vocabulary
For this task use the resource named week 1 English Wednesday.
Art lesson-3: (Use PowerPoint for reference)
Today we are going to be looking at the work of Dianna Cohen
She gives new life to plastic bags by turning them into a work of art.
By doing this, she is preventing them from becoming part of the plastic pollution problem.
Collect some plastic bags from your own house and display them in interesting ways
– Hang them up
-Tie them together
-Cut them open
– Join them together
Find as many ways as you can to display the plastic bags in different ways, turning something unattractive into something beautiful
- What do you notice about the minute hand on the 1st picture below?
- How far has the minute hand gone past the hour (12)?
Look at the 2nd picture and use your knowledge of turns from last half term to help you.
- What do you notice about the minute hand on the 1st picture below?
- How do you think you say the time when the minute hand is pointing to the 9?
Look at the 2nd picture to help you.
Watch the video below and learn how to tell the time to quarter past the hour and quarter to the hour. Click on the link, log in and then watch ‘Quarter Master’:
Afterwards, play ‘Wakey, Wakey’:

Today we are going to focus on throwing accurately. (you will need a small ball preferably a bean bag or an object to throw)
Before we start our lesson we are going to warm up!
Set up different stations for child to have targets to aim for. (Use under arm throw)
- Station 1: circle target on the floor (like a hoop or box etc.)
- Station 2: target on a wall.
- Station 3: aim to throw into the spaces of a ladder or something similar.
Challenge: if successful repeat and take a step back each time, Challenge: if successful repeat and take a step back each time, seeing how far you can throw.
Can you match the features of a non-chronological report with its purpose?
For this task see resource named week 1 English Thursday for key information about the purpose of each feature.
Now create a presentation for your family to help explain the purpose of the features of a non-chronological report. You can record your presentation on an iPad or phone.
Remember to include all the features: heading, subheading, paragraphs, technical vocabulary, photograph and caption.
Art lesson-4: (Use PowerPoint for reference)
Today we are going to look at the work of:
Rodney “Rodrigo” McCoubrey
And Michelle Reader
They both make sculptures using waste materials and junk.
-What do the objects look like?
-What colours are used?
-What materials have been used?
Just like Dianna Cohen, they are preventing these waste materials from going into landfill. They are making beautiful objects out of what is usually considered to be ‘useless’.
Collect some waste or useless items from your own home and turn them into something beautiful.
You could choose an animal, a plant or a shape – anything you like.
The only rule is that you must only use ‘waste materials’
- What time is it when the minute hand is pointing to the 3?
- What time is it when the minute hand is pointing to the 9?

£1.00, 5p etc.
- Ask different money questions. If your child has the answer they cross it off their grid.
- Set up a table as a shop, with objects and toys labelled with a range of prices.
- Encourage your child to choose something that they would like to have.
How will they buy it? What will they use to buy it? Where will they get money from? Who gives money to mum and / or dad?
