GRADE 2 WEEK 2 TERM 3 2020

READ ALONG WITH MRS MENHENNET!

Press pause on the audio file whenever you need to stop.

Hello to all my Grade 2 students from Cambridge Primary School and whoever else might be reading this post.

hello word in block letters with exaggerated 3D shadows

This is week 2 of Term 3 2020 and all my Grade 2 students are at home!

This is not the way I usually work with Grade 2 students to teach them about Visual Arts but we will be doing this for a few weeks until it is safe to attend school again.

Until then, we will be learning like this – online – using my blog!

You will remember me from our time in the art room together last year.

Yes, it’s me – Mrs Menhennet! Most Cambridge Primary School students that know me, recognise me by my multicoloured hair!!!

Cambridge Primary School students always ask me, “Mrs Menhennet, how come you have all those colours in your hair?”

And I always tell them, “I don’t know. It just grew like that!”

 

We are going to be doing a bit of Visual Arts learning about the English artist David Hockney and his paintings of water and swimming pools!

  • For students to explore the artworks of English artist David Hockney.

  • For students to experiment and explore drawing  their body moving in water.

  • To introduce the audio function on my blog post.

  • To read along with Mrs Menhennet as she reads the blog post aloud.

 

  • I can view and think about the artworks of David Hockney.

  • I can experiment and explore drawing my body moving in water.

  • I can play the audio function  on the blog post and read along with Mrs Menhennet.

Let’s get started!

David Hockney is an artist who comes from Yorkshire in England in the United Kingdom.

This map shows where Yorkshire is in the United Kingdom.

This map of the world shows where the United kingdom is in relation to Australia.

He was born on the 9th July in 1937. So that means a couple of week’s ago he had his 83rd birthday!

That’s a lot of candles!

This is a photo of David Hockney sitting in a chair and two self portraits.

One of these is from 2003 when he was 67.

One is from 1954 when he was 17.

One is from 1970 when he was 33.

Can you figure out which one is which?

 

I’ll give you some thinking time to see if you can figure it out.

Yes, that’s right! The self portrait of him wearing the red scarf is from when he was 17. He first decided he wanted to be an artist when he was 11.

The photo of him in the chair, dressed so colourfully in a pink checked suit with bright red and green socks, is from when he was 33,

And the self portrait of him painting is from when he was 67.

Well done if you got those correct.

And now David Hockney is 83 years old and he is still painting and creating!

Way back in the 1960s, about 50 years ago, David Hockney travelled to the United States and flew into the airport in sunny California from cold and wintery England.

He was amazed at all the bright blue rectangles he could see out of the plane window as they were coming in to land.

What were those bright blue rectangles he could see?

Yes, swimming pools!

So David Hockney started painting pools, and people swimming, in the bright California sunshine.

This one is called, “A bigger splash”.

This painting always makes me feel like it is an extremely hot day.

The bright blue cloudless sky is almost shimmering in the heat.

 

The paving around the pool would feel hot under my feet and I would hop and skip my way around the pool knowing that the deep blue water would cool my feet down.

 

What is that yellowy rectangle jutting out over the water?

Yes, it is a diving board! What has just happened in this painting?

Someone has walked along the board, bounced a little on the end, and dived into the pool!

All we can see now is the splash flying up into the air.

We can’t see the swimmer at all, as they have already slithered and slipped away, under the surface of the cool blue water.

It’s almost like David Hockney was using his canvas as a photograph to capture that moment of the splash.

And that is what David Hockney discovered there on the side of the pool.

The splashes are always different.

 

The water is always moving.

Lines painted in the pool bend in the water.

There are shadows in the water.

Swimming bodies look different to standing or walking bodies.

 

And swimming bodies make strange, sometimes blurry shapes in the water.

So David Hockney started creating paintings of swimming pools and swimmers and water and nearly every time he painted the water it was different.

He wasn’t afraid to try new ways of doing things and experimented and tried new ways to paint water.

 

We are going to be drawing soon so you will need some paper,

 

some pencils,

or crayons,

or textas.

Some people call textas, markers.

I am going to give you a little bit of time to organise yourself.

I will just sit here on my blog and wait for you to collect some pencils and textas or crayons and some paper.

The size of the paper or what sort of paper it is doesn’t really matter.

So I will just wait until you are ready……..

Oh, you are ready already! That was so fast! Well done!

Let’s look at this painting again.

This painting is called, “Pool with two figures.”

The man on the side of the pool is looking down at the swimmer. I wonder what he is thinking?

His body is positioned very differently to the swimmer. his arms are flat by his sides.

His back is straight. His neck is bent, his eyes looking down at the water.

Even though we can’t see his eyes we know that is what he is doing.

Now let’s look at the swimmer. Is his body standing straight with arms at the sides?

No! His arms are stretching out in front of his head.

I think he is reaching for the end of the pool. Soon he will feel the smooth tiles under his fingers and he will know he is there.

Will he pull his head up out of the water and look at his friend standing there?


Or will he do a quick flip and tumble over in the water to swim back the other way? Will he surprise his friend standing there watching, and splash him?

I want you to draw a picture of yourself swimming in water but

this is GRADE 2 so I want you using your brain and thinking  hard before you start!

Close your eyes.

Yes, I said close your eyes.

I want you to think…… close your eyes!

.

I want you to think about….. Close your eyes!!!

My SUPER ART TEACHER POWERS are telling me you are peeking and I want you to get drawing, so close your eyes!

I want you to stand nice and tall and straight like the man on the side of the pool.

Are you standing? Arms down by your side and your head slightly bent.

I have just used my SUPER ART TEACHER POWERS and you are now moving in SLOW MOTION.

 

Your head is still bent forward and you start to slowly bend your whole body forward, slowly, slowly and topple into the pool with all your clothes on!

How do you feel?

Get your head up out of the water so you can breathe!

You are no longer moving in slow motion but you are very relaxed  and floating in the water. How do your arms and legs move when you are just floating in the water?

They just sort of blob along with the movement of the water, don’t they? It’s very relaxing as this pool water is warm. So it is a bit like blobbing along in a gigantic warm bath.

Now slowly and gently get yourself into a swimming position. Off you go, swimming in the wonderfully soothing warm water.

What are your arms doing?

How are your legs moving?

How does the water affect your hair? Does your hair move in the water?

You can open your eyes now!

Now you are ready to DRAW!

I want you to draw yourself floating in water.

Sometimes, when my students start drawing they start with a teeny tiny drawing because they are not too sure about what they are doing.

 I don’t want you to draw a teeny tiny picture of yourself. The drawing of the body below is way too small.

Grade 3 David Hockney style swimmer painting drawing 64

 

I want you to draw a great BIG picture of yourself floating in water on whatever sized paper you have!

Grade 3 David Hockney style swimmer painting drawing 61

So, let’s practice using your magic finger.

Hold up your magic finger!

Wave it around in the air!

Make sure it is switched on!

Let’s test it out. Draw a small circle in the air.

Draw a large square in the air.

Write your name in the air.

Write your name 3 times really fast in the air!

Oh, you are faster than me as my name is soooooo looooong!

Now put your magic finger in the air and draw your body.

Okay, so now we know it is working use your magic finger to draw a very small picture of yourself on your paper. Your magic finger is fantastic to practice drawing with as it draws invisibly and you never have to rub it out!

Now draw yourself floating in water  a little bit bigger with your magic finger on your paper.

Now draw yourself really big on your paper with your magic finger.

By practising with your magic finger I hope you will end up drawing yourself nice and large on your paper.

 

You can use lots of colour if you like but even if you just use a pencil for this drawing that will be fine. This is just practice so please don’t be too critical of yourself if you don’t think it is perfect. Please keep your drawing so we can look at it again next week.

Have fun,

Mrs Menhennet

GRADE 2 WEEK 8 TERM 3

REMOTE LEARNING 2020

31st August 2020 – 7th September 2020

READ ALONG WITH MRS MENHENNET!

This is week 8 of Term 3 2020 and all my Grade 2  students are remote learning at home!

This week we are going to be doing some Visual Arts learning about PAPER WEAVING.

Last week I asked you to have a go at doing some PAPER WEAVING like this.

The blue and white WEAVING above was done by Shaurya from 2E and the brown and blue WEAVING, making excellent use of some magazine pages, was done by Siddharth 2D.

If you didn’t do your PAPER WEAVING last week you will need to go to the blog post for Grade 2 Week 7 for instructions.

Here is a story about weaving called ‘The Goat in the rug’ by Geraldine.

READ ALONG WITH MRS MENHENNET Part 2

Wow! Geraldine was the name of the goat and she told the wonderful story about her owner weaving a rug from her wool.

OVER UNDER OVER UNDER

Even though Glenmae was weaving a very big rug she was still going over and under with the wool just like you do when you are paper weaving.

OVER UNDER OVER UNDER

Paper weaving is a skill and you need to practice to improve your weaving skill.

OVER UNDER OVER UNDER

So this week I want you to have another go at paper weaving.

OVER UNDER OVER UNDER

BUT when you finish this week I want you to add something to your weaving to turn it into something else.

So you might turn it into a cow!

 

Or you might turn it into a crocodile!

 

Or you might turn it into a rocket!

Or you might turn it into a fancy quilt for a fancy bed!

 

Use your imagination and see what you can come up with!

And you might have some big paper bags at home that have been used to deliver shopping or take away to your house while you have been in lock down. The sides of a large paper bag are fantastic to weave through. You might like to try paper bag weaving instead.

I can’t wait to see what you come up with. I will create an assignment on Edmodo called Visual Arts week 8 that you can attach your finished week 8 weaving to.

And if you need to watch the videos from last week to remind you how to do paper weaving then just go back to the Grade 2 Week 7 blog post. You will find it in the Recent blog posts list in the side bar.

Have fun,

Mrs Menhennet

This is week 8 of Term 3 2020 and all my Grade 1  students are remote learning at home!

This week we are going to be doing some Visual Arts learning about PATTERN.

Last week you looked for PATTERNS around your house and then you drew them like this.

If you haven’t drawn your patterns yet go to the Grade 1 week 7 blog post for instructions.

This week I have a read aloud for you of Bronwyn Bancroft’s beautiful picture story book ‘Shapes of Australia’. It is full of  magnificent patterns and a feast for your eyes to devour!

 

READ ALONG WITH MRS MENHENNET PART 2

Oh that was just glorious to look at! All those wonderful Australian shapes decorated by author and illustrator Bronwyn Bancroft.

Now I have something special to show you. These are my new boots.

Yes, they have rainbows on them and yes, they are now called my ROY G BIV boots!

Do you like them?

 I LOVE them!

You currently have lots of PATTERN ideas in your head. Last week you looked all around your house searching for PATTERNS and this week you have looked at and listened to a beautiful story by Bronwyn Bancroft full of PATTERNS.

So let’s use all those PATTERN ideas floating around in your head. I want you to design a new pair of PATTERNED boots for me!

wow

Here is a drawing template of a boot that is similar to my ROY G BIV boots.

If you want to use this template you will have to copy it and then print it.

If you don’t have a printer available or you don’t want to print the template just draw up a large boot shape on a piece of paper and use that.

Will you cover the boot in one pattern or divide it up into sections and put different patterns in each section? What colours will you use?

 

I can’t wait to see what you come up with! I will make a folder called Visual Arts Week 8 on Class Dojo for your finished boot designs.

Have fun,

Mrs Menhennet

This week we are going to be doing some Visual Arts learning about LINE.

Here is a song about all sorts of lines.

READ ALONG WITH MRS MENHENNET Part 2.

Wow! What a fantastic song about lines!

Last week you drew all sorts of lines.  If you haven’t drawn your lines for last week yet you will need to go back to the Grade Prep week 7 blog post for your instructions.

This week we are going to do something a little bit different,

You will need a piece of paper. Any sort of paper will do.

You can use pencils,

or crayons,

or textas.

I want you to draw a star somewhere on your paper. I know stars can be tricky to draw but try your best.

When you have drawn your star I want you to draw a VERTICAL LINE joined to the bottom of the star. You have now drawn a magic wand!

wow

You are now going to draw all the magic streaming out of your magic wand using all different sorts of LINESCURVED LINES, WAVY LINES, ZIG ZAG LINES all the different sorts of LINES you can think of.

Make sure you use lots of different colours and LINES and you fill up your paper with all the magic! Don’t forget DOTTED LINES and SWIRLY, CURLY LINES!

I can’t wait to see these magic wands with their magic streaming out all over the place! I will put a folder on Class Dojo and Seesaw Called Visual Arts week 8 for your finished magical wand drawings.

Have fun,

GRADE 2 WEEK 7 TERM 3

REMOTE LEARNING 2020

24th August 2020 – 28th August 2020

READ ALONG WITH MRS MENHENNET!

 

This is week 7 of Term 3 2020 and all my Grade 2  students are remote learning at home!

 

This week we are going to be doing some Visual Arts learning about PAPER WEAVING.

OVER UNDER OVER UNDER

I have a few videos for you to watch about paper weaving.

OVER UNDER OVER UNDER

This first video has been made by a teacher called Mr Wedge.

OVER UNDER OVER UNDER

Here is a link to Mr Wedge’s youtube channel in case you want to watch any more of his art teacher videos.

OVER UNDER OVER UNDER

In the video above Mr Wedge folds and cuts his paper without drawing or ruling any lines on it.

OVER UNDER OVER UNDER

If you would prefer to cut along some printed lines I have made a paper weaving loom template for you.

 

You will need to copy and print the template to use it.

OVER UNDER OVER UNDER

You don’t have to print the template. I have provided it for you if you feel you want to use it but you don’t have to.

OVER UNDER OVER UNDER

You can use whatever paper you have at home. If we were working in the art room I would give you coloured cover paper to use, like Mr Wedge has used in his video, as it is a little bit stronger than photocopy paper.

OVER UNDER OVER UNDER

Remember this is PAPER weaving and PAPER tears very easily.

OVER UNDER OVER UNDER

But, like I said,  you can use whatever paper you have at home.

OVER UNDER OVER UNDER

The front cover of an old magazine would make a terrific paper weaving loom as it would be much stronger than photocopy paper. It would also make an interesting piece of weaving because the loom itself would be multicoloured.

OVER UNDER OVER UNDER

The side of an empty cereal box would also make a strong weaving loom as it would be made of thin cardboard.

 

OVER UNDER OVER UNDER

You also need to cut some long strips of paper to weave with.

OVER UNDER OVER UNDER

They need to be as long as the weaving loom is wide. If they are longer and hang out the sides that doesn’t matter. They can be trimmed off later. If they are too short and don’t reach all the way across the weaving loom, your weaving will have gaps in it!

OVER UNDER OVER UNDER

Again, it doesn’t really matter what type of paper that you use for your weaving strips but coloured or patterned paper will make your weaving look more interesting. Just make sure the strips are long enough to go right across your weaving loom.

OVER UNDER OVER UNDER

Here is a video of me working in the art room at Cambridge Primary School with some grade 2 students teaching them how to do paper weaving. They are using a different paper template to the template I have put on this blog but that doesn’t matter. The way you weave is still the same.

OVER UNDER OVER UNDER

OVER UNDER OVER UNDER

 The paper weaving video 2 and 3 show you how to finish off your paper weaving with a glue stick. There are 2 videos on how to finish as the filming was interrupted by students knocking on the classroom door as a student was filming me on my Ipad!

OVER UNDER OVER UNDER

So, now you have watched these videos I would love for you to have a go at doing some paper weaving.

I will make a folder on Edmodo for you to upload your paper weaving so I can look at it.

Your Specialists Rich Task was due at the end of last week. If you need the instructions for the Rich Task you can find them on the Week 5 blog post. If you can’t find the Week 5 blog post there is a link to it in the sidebar of the blog in the section called Recent Blog Posts.

 

 You also need to ensure you have submitted any other work for your  Specialist teachers that is evidence of your participation in remote learning, into the correct place.

If you enjoyed the videos or want to tell me anything else you can always post a comment at the end of this blog post.

If you don’t know how to post a comment I gave you instructions on how to do this on the week 5 blog post.

Have fun,

from Mrs Menhennet

GRADE 1 WEEK 7 TERM 3

REMOTE LEARNING 2020

24th August 2020 – 28th August 2020

READ ALONG WITH MRS MENHENNET!

 

This is week 7 of Term 3 2020 and all my Grade 1  students are remote learning at home!

 

This week we are going to be doing some Visual Arts learning about PATTERN.

There are patterns everywhere around us.

There are patterns in the park.

There are patterns in the supermarket.

There are patterns on a farm.

There are patterns at the market.

I am absolutely positive there are patterns in your house too!

Perhaps on the floor?

Or in the bathroom?

Hmm! I want you to go for a walk around your house and see how many patterns you can find.

I will wait right here until you get back. Take as much time as you need. You might want to make a list.

Are you surprised at how many patterns you found around your house?

wow

Well now you have had a good look at the patterns around your house I want you to draw 4 of those patterns. Perhaps you can draw your favourite patterns you found around your house?

Take a piece of paper,

any piece of paper will do, and fold it into four spaces.

So, fold the paper in half. Press on the crease and then fold it in half again. Press on the crease. You should now have a piece of paper with four spaces in which to draw.

fold paper into four

 

You can use pencils,

or crayons,

or textas.

Some people call textas, markers.

Draw a different pattern in each of the 4 spaces on your paper. FILL THE SPACE with your pattern.

If your pattern has lots of detail try to put as much of it into your drawings as you can.

I will put a folder on Class Dojo for you to put your 4 fantastic patterns in.

Your Specialists Rich Task was due at the end of last week. If you need the instructions for the Rich Task you can find them on the Week 5 blog post. If you can’t find the Week 5 blog post there is a link to it in the sidebar of the blog in the section called Recent Blog Posts.

 You also need to ensure you have submitted any other work for your  Specialist teachers that is evidence of your participation in remote learning, into the correct place.

If you enjoyed the looking for patterns or want to tell me anything else you can always post a comment at the end of this blog post.

If you don’t know how to post a comment I gave you instructions on how to do this on the week 5 blog post.

Have fun looking at patterns,
