This week we are going to look at a few poems about food.
In Year 1 and 2 we need to read and perform poetry to an audience. I think this is going to be a fun week!
First of all, click here and let’s find out what a poem is.
The first poem we are going to look at is very well known. You probably sang and acted it when you were in Nursery. It is called Jelly on a Plate.
Watch this video and listen carefully.
In this video Michael Rosen sings the rhyme. He is a famous author.
Click here to see it.
I have attached a copy of the poem. It has different verses to the one you just heard. See if you can spot what is different?
Today I would like you to practise reading this poem and then perform it to a grown up. Perhaps you could send me a video of this.
When you have finished performing your poem, I would like you to answer a few questions about jelly on a Plate.
When you have finished performing your poem, I would like you to complete your activity about Jelly on a Plate.
As a bit of fun, I have attached a tongue twister for you to try.
A tongue twister is a group of words or sounds that are very tricky to say correctly and quickly!
Have a go and see how you do. Can your grown-ups say the tongue twister?
Today we are going to be taking away by counting back. To warm our brains up let’s start by counting to 100. Click here to begin.
Now we can move on to taking away.
This sign - can mean taking away, subtraction or minus. When you see this sign the answer will always be smaller than the beginning amount.
First click on the physical activities link, see how you can practise taking away. Then click on the worksheet for your group.
Today you are going to be finding the difference by taking away. Click here to go through this new learning. Make sure you have your worksheet ready.
First let’s get our brains warmed up with this song, click here to begin.
Today we are learning about greater than and less than. If something is greater it means more or bigger. If something is less, it is smaller or the group has fewer objects.
Click on the power point first to go through your learning and then on the worksheet below. For today’s work I want you to count how many animals there are. Then Mystery Mouse will ask you to either tick which has the most or which has the least.
We have been finding out about significant people and events from the past.
Today we are going to learn about another significant person who lived a long time ago.
Can you remember what significant mean?
It means important.
We are going to find out about a woman called Florence Nightingale who dedicated her life to nursing. She travelled to a place called Crimea in the 1850’s where there was a war taking place. She was shocked to find that many soldiers were wounded and that the terrible conditions (how good or bad a place is) were the reason many soldiers were dying.
She is significant in history because she improved the conditions for soldiers by training nurses and showing them how to prevent infections. This made nursing a profession and that is her legacy (something left behind after death).
I would like you to watch the video. Click here.
Now look at the power point to find out all about Florence Nightingale. Below the video is an activity. See if you can put the cards in order to show what happened in Florence Nightingale’s life.
For your learning activity today, I would like you to make a timeline of some of the important events in Florence Nightingale’s life. Then I would like you to sort out the facts to show her legacy.
If you cannot print the activity tell your grown up all about Florence Nightingale’s life. Perhaps you could draw your own timeline.
