11.20 Y2 Palm oil discussion and What Stuck?

 

pm Receive a letter from Rang Tan asking us if we need to use palm oil. What items can you find that use it? (not just food) Where does palm oil come from and why is it causing Rang Tan a problem? Listen to Rang Tan book. Discuss the problem including loss of habitat and loss of trees and the effects this will have (is having) on wildlife and us! Write a letter to Rang Tan or someone else explaining the problem and saying what we are going to do about it. Remember to be specific.

Monday 22nd Feb

Phonics

Y1 For this half term, we are going to be learning about the split digraphs: a-e, e-e, i-e, o-e and u-e. This is made up of two letters (digraph) a vowel and an e, separated by another letter. You will notice that the second letter in the digraph is always e. We might sometimes call it ‘magic e’ because it changes the sound of the first letter in the digraph.

Think about the difference in pronunciation between ‘Tim’ and ‘time’. In the first word there is no magic e so we say the i as a short sound. In ‘time’, the magic e changes the sound of the letter i, making it say its alphabet name (sounds like eye).

The odd one out (isn’t there always one?!) is u-e which has two pronunciations. It can follow the rule above, for example in tune (pronounced tyoon), or it can make the sound of oo as in June.

So a-e makes the sound of saying the first letter of the alphabet. Words such as cake, lane, same, safe, fate. There are some other ways of spelling this sound – can you name them? (a in baby, ai in rain, ay in bay, eigh in eight)

Activity: Quick read ppt of a-e words.

 

Y2 -tion (usually at the end of words but can have suffixes added too, e.g. national, rationing, conservationist)

Activity: Read the flashcards (no need to print them, just practise reading them from the screen) Y2 1 Monday (no need to print) -tion Flashcards

 

Maths

Y1 We are beginning a new topic in maths. For the next few weeks, we will be learning about measurements by being curious and thoughtful mathematicians. Don’t worry if the maths activities this week seem a bit simple for you. The main aim of this week is to use and understand the correct mathematical vocabulary when talking about measurements.

Y1 Compare Lengths – watch video and complete activities as you go along. (No sheet)

 

Y2 We are going to be learning about 2D and 3D shapes. We are going to be curious and thoughtful mathematicians as we ask questions and find out what various shapes are called, and how to describe them using mathematical vocabulary.

Afternoon: We have received a letter from Rang Tan. He wants to know if palm oil is really needed.

Watch this short BBC video to find out what palm oil is. Please watch with your child. Remember, you should not click on links within YouTube unless an adult has said it’s okay.

Can you be a curious geographer and find out how many products in your house use palm oil. Remember the video told us there are different names for palm oil. You might find it in some foods, cleaning products and hygiene items e.g. shampoo. Now be a courageous mathematician and use what we learnt last half term about charts to make a tally chart of how many items you find in each category. You can use this tally chart, or draw your own.

Afternoon: Can you be a curious geographer and find out where palm oil comes from and why it is a problem for Rang Tan? Here is a starting point from WWF 

Try being an empathetic geographer and think about these questions for yourself: What do you think about using palm oil? Is all palm oil bad for the environment? Do you care about the rainforest? Do you care enough to be the change? 

As aspirational geographers we will be asking: What can we do?

Make a bubble diagram in your topic book about palm oil and keep adding to it as you find out more.

Afternoon: We are going to be thoughtful – reflect on the learning you have done since Christmas e.g. plastics, habitats and now palm oil – how can you use that learning to be courageous and form your own opinions about the rainforest and deforestation. Be aspirational as you think of ways to use your learning to improve life for the world around you.

Listen to ‘There’s a Rang Tan in my bedroom’ Version 1, Version 2. Discuss the problem with your family. This is preparation for group discussions on Friday – check Friday’s topic section for details of what you should think about.

Y2 (No White Rose Maths today)

 

Topic

Throughout the day, I will be talking to you in three groups. You will need to have thought about:

  • Why growing palm oil is causing problems
  • How many products in your house contain palm oil (we won’t be judging, just considering the overall number of products palm oil is used in)
  • Why we should or shouldn’t care – your own opinion.
  • What we can do about it

Be a thoughtful and empathetic communicator – remember we don’t all share the same opinion. We must speak clearly and listen well so we can respond to things others have said – not just give your own opinions.

 

Time to be aspirational and courageous writers: Use all that you have learnt and all the empathy you have for wildlife and the planet (now and in the future) to help you write a letter to your family.

  • explain what the problem is with palm oil
  • mention loss of habitat due to deforestation
  • say how you feel about this situation
  • suggest realistic changes that can be made.

 

Final Activity of the Week

What stuck with you this week? We will also try to squeeze a bit of ‘what stuck?’ into our group discussions.

Write a couple of sentences about the learning that has stayed with you – it doesn’t have to be everything we have covered, just the main things that had an impact on you e.g.

  • Wow moments
  • Penny-drop moments
  • Something that has made you stop and think
  • Something that has made you want to find out more.

If we were all in school, I would be asking you to write them on Post-It notes, so that gives you an idea of the amount of writing I am looking for.
