Good morning Class 2!

First of all, I hope everyone has had an EGG-CELLENT Easter weekend!!wink

Last week, I planned lots of Easter themed home learning activities for you to complete. This week, I have decided to plan home learning around a theme again which is ‘Disney’.  Like last week, I have given you a choice of different activities per day that you may wish to complete. As well as this, don’t forget to be accessing Active Learn and Times Table Rockstars if you are able to.

I hope you have fun and enjoy the work! Take care and stay safe,

Miss Hill


Please remember that there is no expectation to complete all of the activities suggested for each day - I have given you a choice of different things that you might like to try!blush

Activity 1 – Retell your favourite Disney story using the storyboard template below!

Activity 2 - Make a picture/painting/collage of a character or a scene from your favourite Disney story.

Activity 3 - Make a salt dough Disney character! 


You will need: 

  • 1 cupful of plain flour (about 250g)

  • half a cupful of table salt (about 125g)
  • half a cupful of water (about 125ml)



1. Preheat the oven to its lowest setting and line a baking sheet with baking parchment.
2. Mix the flour and salt in a large bowl. Add the water and stir until it comes together into a ball.
3. Transfer the dough to a floured work surface and shape into your chosen model. You can roll it out and cut out shapes, numbers or letters using biscuit cutters, or make any kind of model you can think of. We made some fruit and veg shapes plus cupcakes for a teddy bear’s picnic.

4. Put your finished items on the lined baking sheet and bake for 3 hrs or until solid.

5. Leave to cool and then paint.
