ASDAN PSD/PP : Healthy Living

Smoking

We all have choices about a healthy lifestyle. But some things are bad for your health like smoking.

I would like you to look at the power point about the dangers of smoking

Using the ideas on the power point I’d like you to design your own poster encouraging people not to smoke.

You could think of a slogan like: Smoking is bad-Don’t do it!

There is also a worksheet(PDF)

World Chocolate Day

Who likes chocolate?

I think we all do. So how fab to have a world chocolate day!!!!

And who likes chocolate cake?

Listen to the song about chocolate cake

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N3Hmn5h0AOU

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=33F3-GmoubE

Below is an easy recipe to follow to make chocolate cake. Ask a family member to help you.

And remember be safe in the kitchen

 

OCR: Understanding short texts and simple instructions.

2.1 Identify the purpose of written instructions

Instructions help us to learn what to do.

Recipes are instructions but what other instructions are there?

You may have seen your parents read instructions on how to build a piece of furniture!!!!

So the purpose of instructions is to tell you what to do so you safely and effectively.

Look around the house and identify what things need instructions

2.2 Outline main points of written instructions

At school we wrote instructions on how to load the dishwasher remember?

I would like you to write step by step instructions on how to use the washing machine-you could take photos of each step too.

Numbering them will help you to follow the steps sequentially

EG: 1. Collect the washing

        2. Put the clothes into the machine-close the door

 

OCR: Estimating and measuring

1.2 Estimate weight using standard units of measure

Have a look at the different weighing devices (PDF) How many of these do you have at home?

Have a go at measuring in grams (PDF)

If you do make your chocolate cake for World Chocolate Day –remember to weigh out the right amount of each ingredient.

 

ASDAN-PSD/PP :Using technology in the home and community

E2.1 Recognise how technology is used in the home

1.1 Identify how technology is used in the home

The washing machine is a piece of technology we use in the home.

1.2 Demonstrate safe practices when using technology in the home

I would like you to volunteer to do the washing one day.

Follow your instructions and ask a family member to take photos of you.

The weather is so nice at the moment-you could have a go at putting the washing out to dry on the line-Pegs are tricky though!

Don’t forget to take some photos

 

ASDAN PSD: Environmental awareness

E2.1 Demonstrate an awareness of how the actions of humans affect the environment

1.1 Identify a human behaviour which harms the environment

Now more than ever we are all trying not to use too much plastic in our everyday lives.

Plastic free July is to raise awareness about how much plastic we actually do use.

Look around the kitchen and make a list of all the things that are made out of plastic. Talk to your family about whether you can swap the plastic for something else that is not plastic and can be used often.

ASDAN PSD: Managing social relationships

E2.1 Recognise how to interact with others in everyday and familiar situations

1.1 Take part in an exchange with a familiar person about an everyday topic

1.2 Use appropriate behaviours during the exchange

When you sit down to eat a meal with your family what do you talk about?

Sometimes it is difficult to know what to say or what to talk about.

Here are some conversation starters you can try when you are having a meal together.

Things I like family dinner conversations(PDF)

 

ASDAN: Creative Activities

I thought we could practise our cutting skills (PDF)

There are 2 activities for you to try.

The shapes are quite difficult to cut round

Monday 15th June - Friday 26th June

For the next 2 weeks we will be continuing to work on some of the challenges from the Summer Term’s new units.  Do please send me pictures and videos of working through your tasks then also the completed activities, using the Evidence for Learning Parent Portal or my email m.colvin@hollywater.hants.sch.uk

 

ASDAN PSD/PP : Healthy Living

E2.2 Demonstrate how they contribute to their own healthy lifestyle

Keeping healthy is important. We do Well being Wednesday now which helps us to keep our minds and emotions healthy.

2.1 Participate in an activity to contribute to a healthy lifestyle

I’d like you to download the healthy living game.

There are lots of suggestions for you to do to make sure you have a healthy lifestyle.

I like the dancing one.

Fill in your wellbeing calendar for a week.

PP:Planning and preparing food for an event

National Picnic Week-22nd June

Your challenge is to make sandwiches for a picnic for your family.

What are you going to put into the sandwiches ?-these are called fillings

Ask each family member what their choices are. Write these down.

It might be, for example, tuna, mayo and sweetcorn-one of my favourites!

Think about the ingredients you will need to make the fillings.

When you have agreed when you will have your picnic-safely with a family member, make your filling and then use it to make your sandwiches

Wrap them or put them in a container ready for your picnic

Happy picnicking!!!!!

https://www.nationalpicnicweek.co.uk/

OCR: Understanding short texts and simple instructions.

1.1 Read a short text 

We have started our book on The Fabulous Adventures of FE Pets. You can read Chapter 1 on the power point.

1.2 Answer simple questions about the text they have read

When you have read the story so far answer the questions.

Think about Chapter 2

Send me any new adventures so I can add these to our book.

OCR: Estimating and measuring

2.3 Use a measuring instrument to measure capacity to the nearest labelled division

When we are following a recipe, it usually tells us how much of an ingredient we need.

We either need to weigh the ingredient or measure the liquid.

We can use weighing scales or a measuring jug to help us get it right.

Our challenge in the next 2 weeks is to use a measuring jug to pour our family a drink of water or juice at a meal time.

You can either measure out an exact amount, using the measures down the side of the jug or you could ask your family if they want a FULL glass or a HALF glass. You can then estimate and pour the right quantity.

Remember to look at the glass when you are pouring and concentrate-it’s very easy to overfill and make a mess!!!

ASDAN-PSD/PP :Using technology in the home and community

Look at the power point called It’s a wind up

The radios we listen to at home are powered by electricity or batteries 

This is a fascinating story about technology that does not need batteries or electricity to work.

I had a windup radio for when I went camping- it was great fun.

ASDAN PSD: Environmental awareness

E2.3 Be able to demonstrate a way in which they can help the environment

3.2 Participate in a given activity to help the environment

We have been spending a lot of time at home since March. So I’d like you to think about what we can do at home to help the environment

Look at the power point on saving energy

What can you and your family do to use less energy at home?

Turning off lights is a big one-I know I forget and my son Kyle always forgets!!!!!

Let’s see if we can make a difference by learning to turn off lights in the house when we don’t need them

Make your own reminder that you can blue tac to your door. There is an example below

We can all play our part to keep the planet healthy

ASDAN PSD: Managing social relationships

E2.1 Recognise how to interact with others in everyday and familiar situations

1.2 Use appropriate behaviours during the exchange

Playing games with your family is a great way to learn how to talk, what to say and listen to what others say to you.

Do you remember we started playing the game GUESS WHO?

If you don’t have it, you can download is and make the game yourself

If you have a communication device-set it up with questions before you start the game-Is is a man or a woman? Are they wearing glasses? Does he have a beard?

ASDAN PSD/PP : Healthy Living

2.1 Participate in an activity to contribute to a healthy lifestyle

Walking is an excellent way to keep fit and help you have a healthy lifestyle. I walk Tia on a daily basis to keep us both fit!!!! On the 10th of June its Brakes kids walk awareness day to promote road safety health and environmental issues.

Your challenge is to go on a walk with your family-take the dog out if you have one and take your camera. I’d like you to take photos of road safety rules which keep you safe when you are walking. For example: walk on the pavement and how do you cross the road safely? If you can print out your photos and make a poster-title-Me keeping safe when I am walking

You can get your heart rate up when walking too-try doing 2 minutes speed walking and 3 minutes normal walking like we were practising at Alice Holt. Don’t forget to put your hand on your heart after you fast walk to feel your increased heart rate.

https://www.awarenessdays.com/awareness-days-calendar/brakes-kids-walk-2020/

 

PP:Planning and preparing food for an event

Believe it or not there is a national Cupcake day on the 13th of June!!! What a fab idea!!!!

https://www.awarenessdays.com/awareness-days-calendar/cupcake-day-2020/

It is a charity event so you might like to sell your cupcakes to family members and raise some money for the Alzheimer’s Society

Your challenge is to find a recipe for a healthy cupcake and with help from a family member, make then for your family

Google healthy cupcakes to find your recipes-think carrots and beetroot

 

OCR: Understanding short texts and simple instructions

I would like us to write a book together.

It’s going to be called The Fabulous Adventures of FE Pets

It could be your dog,cat,fish,hamster,chicken

If you don’t have a pet, you can choose your own pet using the internet and download a picture of it and name it.

Please follow the instructions carefully.

Your text can be fact or fiction

Don’t forget to email them to me.

When we have gathered all the pet adventures I will collate them into a book that we can all share.

Have Fun! Can’t wait to read our class book.

 

OCR: Estimating and measuring

Measuring is part of everyday life-whether you are following a recipe or doing DIY- you need to measure before you start.

Look around the house or ask your parents for any things that we use to measure the length/width/depth of things.

A tape measure/a ruler/ an electronic measure.

Have a good look at them-work out how they work and the numbers-are they in cm’s or inches?

Estimating means having a guess-this is where it can all go wrong if you don’t measure and you end up buying  the wrong size!!

But it’s a good way to learn how important measuring can be.

Using your choice of measuring device, estimate and measure things in your house or garden.

Use the recording chart I have made for you show your results.

Have  a go at some of these on line tasks

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z4nsgk7/articles/zqf4cwx

Here are some top tips on learning to measure

ASDAN-PSD/PP :Using technology in the home and community

2.2 Demonstrate safe practices when using technology in the local community

There is lots of technology in our environment and one of the most common ones is a pelican crossing- I wonder why it was named a pelican crossing? Have you ever seen a pelican crossing the road? Might be worth investigating. There other names for these crossings –can you think of any?

This technology is in place to keep us safe when we cross the road.

Your challenge is to complete the worksheet, firstly colouring using the correct colours and then writing what you need to do when you see the crossing lights.

This also coincides with Child safety week starting on the 1st June

https://www.capt.org.uk/pages/category/child-safety-week

 

ASDAN PSD: Environmental awareness

3.2 Participate in a given activity to help the environment

Do you remember in our sensory garden at school we have a bug’s hotel?

This is a structure that is designed especially for bugs and it made from materials that bugs like to live in.

You may already have on in your garden-if not they are very easy to make using recycled household items and using things you already have in your garden.

https://www.woodlandtrust.org.uk/blog/2019/09/how-to-build-a-bug-hotel/

https://www.redtedart.com/simple-bug-hotel-for-kids/

Take some photos of your Bug Hotel-you could name it too-Bugs Best B and B!

Check on it daily and see if there are any arrivals.

Have fun!

 

ASDAN PSD: Managing social relationships

1.3 Ask and respond to questions appropriately

 

Hide and seek is a great game to play with all the family. This is hide and seek with a twist. This game can be played inside or outside the house

Choose an object that you are going to hide-it could be an ornament/ a CD/ a tin of baked beans.

If you are playing in the garden-ask the family members to go inside while you hide the object. Then ask them to come out and sit down.

They then need to ask you questions to try to find out where it is

For example-Is is behind the flowerpot/is it in the tree/is it inside the flower pot/is in under the BBQ?

You need to answer your family –yes or no- to help them to find the object.

 

ASDAN: Creative Activities

On the 6th June its Butterfly awareness day. I am sure you have seen quite a few butterflies on your walks.

 https://www.twinkl.co.uk/event/butterfly-education-and-awareness-day-2020

Use the template I have given you to make your own butterfly mosaic. Cut it out and stick it to a door using bluetac - I’d love to see your creations.

Looking after and caring for animals

Last term we were very involved in looking out for the birds that we enjoying our bird feeders and spotting and identifying them.

Your challenge is to allocate ½ hour each day to your bird spotting survey. I have attached a picture of common birds you may see in your garden. Print it out and make your own tally chart. When you see a bird on your list record it and name it if you can. Count your results like we do together with our housepoints.

Contributing to discussions

Taking part in a discussion with familiar people. Tell your family about your bird spotting at the end of each day. Share the information you have gathered and answer questions that your family may ask you.

You could record it and be a reporter like on the television. You could call it: (Your Name) Great Garden Bird Spot

Planning and Preparing a meal for an event - Come dine with me challenge

Watch an episode of couples come dine with me. Choose a family member to be your partner.

Reading

Look on the internet or in recipe books for a recipe you would like to cook ( A main course and a pudding) Read out the recipe-decide whether you can make it easily.

Writing

Look at the ingredients that you need-and write a shopping list –you can use your ipad if its easier

Managing own money

If you can go on to a supermarket website and price up the cost of the ingredients you need. How much money will you need to host your dinner party?

You have now done all the preparation. Choose a day- write your menu-

Prepare your food-set your table-be a waitress/waiter-and don’t forget the entertainment-you could sing your favourite song to your guests or tell some jokes.  HAVE FUN

Environmental awareness.

Art in the garden-using things you might find in your garden create your own garden art. Take a photo of it and create your own garden art collage.

       

 

When you are out on your daily walks/exercise take photos of any litter that you may see. Make a poster to help remind people not to drop their litter and to take it home and bin it.

Don’t forget your yoga-its important to keep calm and carry on.

 

Monday 6th April - Friday 17th April

 

Creative: Decorate your bedroom for Easter. First of all think about what you would like-bunting/an Easter tree/ easter egg pictures. You can go on to google images to get ideas.

Make your decorations. Have a decorating day just before Easter.

Look through some magazines and find pictures of  food that we eat at Easter. Make a collage of Easter foods

Make a wish list jar and put in it on a post it what outings you would like to go on with your family when we can.

When you are out on your walks you could find a largish branch and bring it home to make an Easter Tree. You might like to paint it first before you decorate it. You could make salt dough decorations. Then after Easter it would be good to wrap them carefully in tissue and keep them for next year

Spot the daffodil-there are so many lovely daffodils out at the moment. Play spot the daffodil and use your cameras to photograph it. If you can print out your photos make a daffodil collage and put words on that describe your daffodil-yellow-bright-lovely-pretty

You may like to pick a few –bring them home and put them in a vase look at them and draw them-it’s called still art.

A crafty idea is also to make an Easter wreath to put on your front door. Look on google images to get a picture. Make it with a mixture of things from the garden and eggs that you could ‘blow’.

 

With your family help  make breakfast at Easter and do a bunny fried egg

If you watch a film try writing a film  review about it afterword’s.-In your review you can say who the main characters are-what the film was about-what you liked- and  if you would recommend it to your friends. You could film yourself instead and pretend you are a reporter for Newsround
