We are continuing our Changing Me topic and this week is our last lesson in this topic. We are thinking about how to deal with change. First let’s look at the document below and think about how we might feel during these changes – they may be positive or negative.
So, how do we cope with change? Let’s look at the story about ‘The Cautious Caterpillar’.
Sometimes we have to look at the positives and negatives of change. We can share our worries with a family member, close friend or our teachers. If we focus on the positives, we will be able to feel happier and better about the change.
Today we will be solving problems using multiplication facts and pictures. We will focus on our 2 times tables. Watch the video about counting in twos.
Complete the activity below to improve your counting skills. Remember to count in twos!
Now look at the PowerPoint to help you understand how to answer questions about counting in twos.

If you want to add an arty element to this task, why not decorate the page you’ve written your poem on? Or why not do a drawing underneath?
We look forward to reading your poems!

Good morning Year 1!
L.O. To find out about animals, people and plants throughout the world that are endangered.
Adaptability – Communication – Cooperation – Enquiry – Morality – Respect Thoughtfulness
For today’s task you will be doing some research on people, plants and animals that are endangered. Choose one of the above topics and create a poster, PowerPoint, video…whatever you like!
Start by thinking about these questions:
Who looks after the world’s people, plants and animals?
Is each country responsible for their own people, plants and animals? If one country decided to cut down all its forests could other countries interfere?
As the world becomes more global (people working and doing things together across the world) and industrial (using machines and technology), traditional (older) ways of life are being lost.
You could research the following peoples:
- Kung San of southern Africa
- Ethnic groups of Papua Guinea
- Tuareg nomads of northern Africa
- Kayapo of the Brazilian rainforest
Or you can choose to research an animal or a plant that is endangered.
The following websites might be useful for research:
- ngkids.co.uk/places – National Geographic website has child-friendly information about different countries, people and animals.
- iucn.org – International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) website details what, where and how they work to find solutions to the challenges threatening the environment. (Useful for adults.)
- wwf.org.uk – World Wide Fund for Nature website provides details of its work in more than 90 countries to conserve endangered species and habitats.
- www.unep.org/wed – United Nations Environment Programme website features information on World Environment Day and how different cities celebrate. (Useful for adults.)
