"Small enough to care, Big enough to inspire"

Week 2 (11.1.21)


Well done for your amazing Piet Mondrian pictures last week! You all remembered that the primary colours are red, yellow and blue! 

This week we're going to learn about secondary colours; these are colours that can be made by mixing different combinations of the 3 primary colours together! Look through the slides below to see which of the primary colours can be mixed together to make the colours green, purple and orange!

 Then follow the 'Colour Mixing Activity' link below to have a go at digital colour mixing and creating a picture.

If you have paint at home, feel free to experiment with colour mixing using these : )

I'd love to see your pictures when you're done so please either screenshot your digital picture or take a photo of your painting and upload it to the blog/email it to me!

Art lesson - Secondary colours


Scroll down and go through the slides to learn about what we can do to stay healthy!

Then click on the link below to watch a video all about the 5 different food groups.

Finally, you can design a healthy packed lunch for the Highway Rat. All those chocolates and eclairs can't be good for him! Remember, he needs something from all 5 food groups (see the food groups poster below to help you remember which foods belong to which groups and what the groups are called).


Draw and label your lunchbox and the items inside : )

(See the picture prompts sheet below for ideas)


Read through the slides below to learn about where food comes from and about different types of farms!


Once you've learnt the difference between arable, dairy and livestock farms, write out and complete the sentences below by filling in the gaps (use the wordbank to help you). Then draw a picture by each sentence to show what each type of farm is like.


Arable farms grow crops like ________________


Livestock farms raise animals for _____________, wool and ______________


Dairy farms produce ____________ to make cheese, yoghurt and ______________


I've uploaded a layout example below - you could set your work out like this onto plain paper or in exercise books. There is no need to print it, it's just for guidance : )



Once you've learnt about the food that was eaten during the Tudor period (either using the slides below or by watching the video linked on the blog) have a go at creating a menu for a Tudor King! Rich Tudors would have had banquets, which are formal meals/feasts with lots of people (see image below). See if you can remember what kinds of foods rich Tudors ate and put these on your menu! You can either create your menu using the 2Do task set on Purple Mash or hand write it into your exercise books/onto plain paper (you can even add some drawings to go onto your menu). I've uploaded an example menu layout to give you an idea of how you can set it out onto paper. Try to include at least 3 different dishes and something to drink!


There is also a video you could watch below of some people preparing food for a Tudor banquet!


Hygiene is any practice or activity that we do to keep things healthy and clean. Look through the slides below to learn all about food hygiene. Then make a poster showing how to stay safe when handling food!

Try to choose at least 3 different ways of staying safe in the kitchen - you can draw a picture of each action and label it.


 E.g  'Washing hands'


Use plain paper, do it in your exercise books or make it on a computer!

I've uploaded an example of a poster below.
