Learning Objective: To draw on what we already know about chocolate
This term we are looking at the big question....
Does chocolate grow on trees?
In today's lesson we are going to be thinking about...
What types of chocolate have you seen or eaten? Think about the different colours and shapes.
Do you like chocolate?
Where do you think chocolate comes from?
Then finally, how might we answer these questions?
We are going to be reading an 'Explanation Text' on Growing Chocolate. This book is allocated to you on Active Learn.
Today we are just going to focus on screen 2 of the book, 'Where's the chocolate?'
To write a summary of what you have learnt from 'Where's the chocolate?'
I would like you to include the name of the trees, pods and where they grow and why. Plus anything else you think is essential.
In this last week of our plants topic we are going to take a final look at our plants and compare the growth.
Work through the presentation below.Look at the photo of the seedling and the bulb. Look closely at all parts of the plants and describe them in detail. Ask the children to compare the plants by thinking of a way that the plants are similar (for example, both have leaves, both are green), and a way in which they are different (for example, the leaves have a different texture, they are different sizes, the leaf formation in relation to the stem is different).
Children complete the worksheet by drawing the sunflower and onion plants and writing a similarity and a difference between the two. Children may use the Seeds and Bulbs Word Mat for support. If any of the children’s plants have not thrived, discuss the possible reasons why that might be the case.
Reception children: 1 star worksheet: Children draw and verbally describe a similarity and a difference between the plants to an adult.
Year 1 (2 star worksheet) and Year 2 ( 3 star worksheet) children: Children write in more detail about similarities and differences between their plants.
This unit is called 'Being Me'
Before we start this session, draw a picture of yourself and write about what makes you special.
What makes me, me?
Watch this video which is an exploration of the concept of identity using the story of the ‘Ship of Theseus’. Using the example of a ship changing over time and becoming physically different, help your child to consider whether their unique and special identity changes over time as they grow up.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
