Little bit of food

This week our activities will be linked to the poem 'Little bit of food'.  The link to the video can be found below. 

Little bit of food by Joseph Coelho 

A little bit of rice,
a little bit of pea,
on my plate
for my tea.

rice, pea, rice, pea, rice pea, rice, pea.


A little bit of banger,
a little bit of mash,
in my belly
for a tasty bash.

banger, mash, banger, mash, banger, mash, banger, mash.


A little bit of jam,
a little bit of toast,
in the mornings
when I like it most.

jam, toast, jam, toast, jam, toast, jam, toast.


A little bit of fufu,
a little bit of stew,
eat with our fingers,
that's what we do.

fufu stew, fufu stew, fufu stew, fufu stew.


A little bit of curry,
with a poppadum,
tastes great
but it burns my buuuu (tongue)!

burning tongue, burning tongue, burning tongue, burning tongue. 


A little bit of food,
on my plate,
eat it all up,
feeling great, feeling great, feeling great, feeling great.

Monday - Literacy

We would like you to look very carefully at the words(vocabulary) of the poem.  There might be some words that you have not heard before and are unsure what they mean.  We would like you to find out about these words: banger, mash, fufu, stew and poppadom.  Can you write a short sentence about each word and any others you would like to find out about? Please upload your sentences onto Class Dojo.


Tuesday - Literacy

Read the poem again and as you read it or an adult reads it to you, can you think about these questions.

Do you notice any patterns in the poem?

Do you like the poem?  Why do you like it? or Why do you not like it?

If you could ask the author one question about this poem, what would your question be?  

​​​​​​​Please talk to your adult about what you notice in the poem and if you like or dislike the poem.  Can you write your question about the poem on Class Dojo, remember to use a ? at the end.


Miss Peckett's question - What is your favourite food to eat for dinner?

Miss Thompson's question - Why do you eat fufu with your fingers?


Wednesday - Literacy/Drama

Pick a part from the poem "Little Bit of Food". We would like you to create your own actions that go with the part you have chosen - you can be as creative as you like! Upload a video of your performance with actions onto Class Dojo.


Thursday - Literacy

Write your own verse (part) of the poem. Think about the rhythm and pattern and see if you can write your verse in the same style as Joseph Coelho.


Miss Thompson's verse:

A little bit of fish

A little bit of chips

Down by the sea

Where my toes like to dip

Fish, chips, fish, chips, fish, chips, fish, chips


Upload a photo of your verse onto Class Dojo.
