Day One

Session One: Wellbeing and English

English- Capital Letters and Days of the Week

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zn7296f

The days of the week are:

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

Watch the video on Bitesize to find out more.

 

Nouns and capital letters: 

Common nouns are the name of things. These do not have a capital letter unless they are at the start of a sentence. 

Proper nouns are the names of a specific person, place, or thing. These always start with a capital letter.

 

For example:

  • The word girl is a common noun, so doesn't start with a capital (unless its at the start of a sentence).
  • The name Jessica is a proper noun, because it is the name of a particular girl, so always starts with a capital letter.

 

We also use a capital letter at the start of a new sentence and when using the word ‘I’ to talk about ourselves. For example:

Most weeks, on Monday, I play my favourite game.

 

Watch the video on Bitesize to find out more.

 

Activity 1: Let's use capital letters

As you have learnt, we use capital letters in a variety of ways.

They are used:

-At the beginning of a sentence

-For proper nouns (names, places, countries, days of the week, nationalities, languages)

-When using ‘I’ to talk about yourself

 

Try writing two sentences that use capital letters for all three reasons above. Once you have finished, circle the capital letters and explain why they are capital letters.

Here is an example:

My sister, Becky, watched a film with me and I did not like

Activity 2: Let's write about other people

Watch the short video about Joe Wicks and then try writing some sentences about it.

 

Joe Wicks talked about five different exercises in his video. Can you remember what they were? Pick three of the exercises and write a sentence about each of them.

Activity 3: Days of the week in sentences

Imagine you are recording your exercises or activities in a diary.

  • Record what activities you did on each day of the week.
  • Make sure you use joining words to add more information to your sentences.
  • See if you can use some of your joining words in different parts of your sentences.

 

Here are two examples:
On Monday, I went on a bike ride with my parents and then I did some English work.
I did some English work and went for a bike ride with my parents on Monday.

Session Four: History-Who was Florence Nightingale?

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zj274xs

This is Florence Nightingale.

Florence Nightingale went to the Crimean War to nurse wounded soldiers.

She changed the way people nursed and helped save many lives.

Discover more about her life in the clip below.

 

Key facts

  • Florence was born in 1820 in a well-known city in Italy - it's called Florence, and that's how she got her name.
  • During the Crimean War, she nursed soldiers during the night and became known as ‘The Lady with the Lamp’.
  • She and her nurses saved many lives.
  • When she came home to England after the Crimean War, she didn’t want people to know who she was. So she called herself ‘Miss Smith’.
  • Florence Nightingale is remembered for making changes to nursing and showing people that nursing was a very important job.

Can you put these key events of Florence's life in the correct order?
