Hi Class 2!
Welcome to the second half of our Home Learning activities for our topic Let’s Grow!
Eating Well – Let’s think about eating well. The link below has an Eatwell Guide which shows us the five different food groups. Look in your kitchen; do you have food from each of these food groups? Research the benefit of each food group on your body and why you need more of some food groups than others. Click Here
Fraction food – Make a fruit/vegetable smoothie or fruit salad/salad bowl, practising how to cut fruit and vegetables into halves and quarters. Consider how to use a knife safely and carefully and why you need to clean up after yourself.
Edible art – There are lots of creative ways to make the food you eat interesting and appealing. Look at these different examples. Make your own edible art!
Investigate where food comes from – Have you ever thought about where food comes from? Have a look at different food labels in your kitchen and find the country where it came from. Sometimes it will tell you the country or sometimes there will be a flag to represent the country. Make a tally chart of the different countries your food came from.
Seven continents and five oceans Fact File This term children would have learned to name and locate the seven continents and five oceans of the world. To support their geographical learning watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gFIS3aLQPfs there are also lots of other clips to watch too!
Make a fact file about continents and oceans. You could include:
· a description of what a continent and an ocean is
· an interesting fact about each of the seven continents
· a list of the different oceans and what continents they are near
· a labelled map
Look at an atlas or globe and find the different continents and oceans of the world.
Let’s pretend to be Andy Warhol! – Andy Warhol was a very famous American artist who was part of the pop art movement. He liked painting everyday things and painted lots of things for celebrities. Over 50 years ago he produced these two very famous paintings. Draw, paint or chalk an item of food just like Andy Warhol.
A healthy heart – Keeping your heart strong is an important way to stay healthy. Exercise is an excellent way to do this. Design an exercise circuit or take part in your own exercise video just like our own Legs Leetham or Joe Wicks!! Think of different ways to exercise and move your body which includes a warm up and cool down activity. You can make it as fun and imaginative as you wish.
· Observe and record the effects of the exercise on your body.
· If you are completing a circuit, time how fast it took you to complete it. Time family
members completing the same circuit.
· How do you think you could improve your time if you tried again?
Hand wash poster- Hygiene and keeping yourself clean has never been so important. Design a poster that could be displayed either in your own bathroom or in our school toilets to remind people how to clean their hands properly and why it is important to always have clean hands.
Use your loaf science experiment – For your science experiment you will need:
· 4 sealable food bags
· 4 slices of bread taken from the same loaf.
1. Place an untouched slice of bread into a food bag. Seal and label.
2. Wipe an unwashed hand on top of a slice of bread then place the bread into a food bag. Seal and label.
3. Wipe a freshly washed or sanitised hand on a slice of bread then place the bread into a food bag. Seal and label.
4. Wipe a slice of bread onto an unwashed surface that it is frequently used eg: a door handle/laptop/tablet/garden toy etc. Place the slice of bread in a food bag. Seal and label.
5. Place the sealed food bags in a cool dry area.
6. Predict what might happen to the different slices of bread.
7. Observe over the next few weeks.
8. Record your findings and consider possible explanations
