This week our english work will have a wellbeing focus. All resources for this week can be found here.

  • I can discuss and describe how artists use colour and design.
  • I can create new animal names. 
Printing a Class Creature
  • Look at the double-page spread of the donkey (or display Polka-dotted Donkey (resources)).Describe the pattern and colours that they can see. How does the donkey image make them feel? What technique do they think Carle used to create the pattern?
  • Select a paint colour, printing object and to print a few times inside the animal shape. Adult supervision is recommended here.
Making Animal Lists
  • On the Alphabet of Animals sheet (see resources) list an animal (real or imaginary) beginning with each letter of the alphabet.
  • They then say and/or write a sentence to introduce one of their animals, using the ‘wrong’ colours, e.g. This is my scarlet cow who eats blue grass. 

  • I can name emotions and link them to colours.
  • I can answer questions about a text.

Reading Comprehension
  • Read Afterword from The Man who Painted Blue Horses (see resources).
  • Complete the remainder of the cloze activity, using the text to help you answer.
Creating Emotions Colour Charts
  • Look at Paint Colours (see resources) and think how paint makers try to capture the spirit of their colours in the names they choose.
  • What if we tried to name the colours after emotions? e.g. calm green, sorrowful grey, furious red etc.
  • Create your own Emotions Colour Chart, painting different colours onto the charts and naming them after a range of emotions.

  • I can create art inspired by an artist
  • I can talk about a character I have created, about their appearance and behaviour.

  • Choose an animal and then research and get inspiration by looking at images of the real animal. Make notes and preliminary sketches to help.
  • Develop and create a stylised image of your animal using the techniques and materials advised. The main aim is to create an image of an animal in a surprising colour but as you work, you should think about how the animal feels and behaves. Is it a typical cow or does it have an adventurous side? Look at the Questions to Think About (see resources).

Thursday -     House Event

  • I can write a poem using a given structure
  • I can use powerful words to describe colours and emotions.
  • Look at the Example Poem and use the Writing Frame (see resources). .
  • Use your animal picture from Day 3 and think about why you chose those colours.
  • Begin to draft your poem ideas, beginning with a simile line and then linking it to an emotion.
