This is a brilliant comprehension to use in English when talking about harvest as it links to RE. I would recommend it for year 2 and up. It is based on the song Cauliflowers Fluffy which you can find here on youtube:
Here are four differentiated sheets with the lyrics of the songs and questions underneath.
Extended level: Retrieval and higher order thinking questions (Why, What does it mean..., Which word tells you that...)
Core: Focused more on simple retrieval from the text.
Lower Core: Simple retrieval from the text but scaffolded multiple choice for half of the questions.
Nurture, SEN, EAL: Using the song and text children read for mening and find colour and adjective used to describe the fruit/veg and draw the harvest basket.
These differentiated maths sheets are about on bar charts: Children read the table of how many children like which fruit and make a bar chart of it plus they answer questions about it. It is differentiated into bar charts that go up in 1s, 2s and 5s. It is further differentiated for each (1s, 2s or 5s) - one is more scaffolded and the bar chart has been prepared, the other needs children to label their own bar chart.
Furthermore the same activity again but with a blank table for children to investigate in their own class and create a car chart from there.
ADDING SEVERAL NUMBERS
Here are 6 differentiated worksheets (2 pages each) that I made for my class to relate maths learning to Harvest.
On each sheet, the letters of the alphabet are printed at the top and each letter has a value. Children then have to work out the total of several harvest words printed on the sheet.
1. There are three sheets designed for applying mental strategies to work out name scores:
-WALT add using mental strategies: Adding single-digit numbers using basic number bonds.
- WALT add using mental strategies: Adding several multiples of 10.
- WALT add using mental strategies: Adding several multiples of 100.
2. There are three more differentiated sheets, where children can apply the column method or a calculator for addition to work out the score of each name:
- WALT add several two-digit numbers (each individual number below 30).
- WALT add several two-digit numbers (each individual number below 50).
- WALT add several two-digit numbers (each individual number below 100).
The children then work out their own word's score and compare them to the other words :) Can easily be edited for your own classes.
