Thursday 18th June

Good Morning Year 2

Challenge:  Listen to the audio of me reading the morning message.  Can you read along as I speak? 

Miss Writer's Morning Message

Today is Thursday 18th June, 2020.  I hope you had a lovely Wednesday and ate lots of vegetables!  I had a huge salad with tomatoes, cucumber, lettuce and some olives. I also had some pizza that we made.

 

Did you hear the rain last night?  It poured and poured and poured so much that I thought it would never stop.  In fact, it still hasn't where I am.  Today is... International picnic day.  I'm not sure that we will be able to have a picnic with so much rain.  Maybe we can just pretend. 
 

I hope you enjoy all the activities I have set you.

 

Have a good Thursday!

Father in heaven You love me.

Activity 3 - Geography

 

This is a map of the United Kingdom.  You can see all different kinds of foods that are grown, reared (animals are reared) or made in different parts of the United Kingdom. 

 

 

  • In the Scottish Highlands (north) there are lots of Highland cattle reared there.  They have lots of space to roam around freely and a heavy coat for winter. 

 

  • In Devon (south west) they like clotted cream.  It is eaten with scones, strawberry jam and tea and called a cream tea.  I made scones on Monday!
  • In Lincolnshire (midlands - middle of the UK), they grow lots of peas.  I love pea soup and I especially love peas when I have some sausages!  

 

 

Your challenge today is to:

1) In your book, design your family a meal with an ingredient from the British Food Map. Make sure you create a balanced plate.  

 

Some ideas:  beef - spaghetti bolognese (Scotland), scones with jam and cream (Devon), salad with tomatoes (Isle of Wight), a cup of tea (Cornwall). What can you think of?  What about desert?

 

If you need some recipe ideas you can go to this website:

2) If your family will let you, you can MAKE YOUR DISH TOGETHER. You had better make it a really good dish and plan it well and be prepared for adult changes to your dish.  Your adult will have excellent suggestions.

 

Challenge: 

1) Ask an adult if you can have a look at where your food is from.  It should say on the packaging.  Are any of your vegetables and fruit grown in the UK?  Where is your oil from?  Where is your salt from?

2) Can you identify the places on a map?
