Who was Emmeline Pankhurst?

Where do minibeasts live?


A habitat is a place where an animal lives. It provides the animal with food, water and shelter. A microhabitat is a very small part of a habitat, such as a clump of grass or a space between rocks. It is a habitat for extremely small creatures. Many minibeasts live in microhabitats. 


I would like you to write some facts about a minibeast that lives in a microhabitat. Draw and label the minibeast in its home too.


I've attached some information to help you.

Hello Class 2

It’s Miss Moffett with some art and music for Wednesday.

For art, this week, try and make a minibeast sculpture.

Next time you go out for a walk, collect some materials you could use. Look for things like leaves and flowers but don’t pick them off the trees. You might find grass, bark and weeds such as dandelions, daisies and clover. Also sticks and pebbles. Remember to be careful and wash your hands when you get home.

Look at your pictures of the minibeast I attached last week and see if you can create one with the materials you have collected. Here are some examples








If you can’t manage to go for a walk, try making your minibeast from the things you have indoors, such as Lego pieces, pasta, ribbon, forks or spoons, bits of clothing, bottle tops, egg cartons etc.


If you were interested in learning about a famous artist, you could watch a lesson on the Oak National Academy on line, about Andy Goldsworthy, who liked to use natural materials.


For music, there is another Beatles song.

Listen to a song called All Together Now on YouTube


What instruments can you hear when you listen to the song?

Join in singing the song. Ask your family to join in too.


A lot of families are not together at the moment. Draw an ‘All Together Now’ picture. Draw a picture of you with all the people you are missing and would like to be with soon.

VE Day Celebrations - Friday 8th May



VE Day is a day to remember the end of the Second World War. This was on the 8th May 1945. It is a day to remember the bravery of those who lived during the war. It is also a time to remember the soldiers who were in the war. 

VE day is a time to celebrate. People held street parties and would also dress in the colours of the British flag.


On Friday lots of people will be doing different things to celebrate VE day. I've added some ideas and resources to help you celebrate VE day at home.


*Make some bunting and decorate your house or garden.

*Design your own VE Day medal.

*Wear clothes that are the same colour as the British flag.

*Have a picnic in your garden and play games with your family to celebrate.


Monday Fun!

Wednesday 13th May

Happy Wednesday Class 2

I hope you are keeping safe and busy.

For art this week I thought you look at the kids page from an art gallery called The Tate Modern. The gallery is located in London. It is one of the largest museums of modern art in the world.

You need to go to Tate Kids. There are loads of activities, quizzes, games and art to look at. I thought if you find Tate Paint, you could have a go at drawing some mini beast…. Or just have a look around and have fun.

Here are two I painted. I’m sure you could do better.




For music, this week, listen to

The Beatles I Want To Hold Your Hand. It’s great to dance to. Have a go. What do you think?


It’s best not to hold hands with people except your family at the moment but draw around your hand, colour it in and put it in your window like it is waving to the people that pass by.
