We are still exploring time!

 

Activity 1

Find some different containers for you to explore together

Can you show a full container

Can you show an empty container

Can you show almost full

Can you show almost empty

Taking some pictures would be great!

Can you find some smaller objects today for example: a mug, pan, bowl

Can you fill these objects and then using a measuring jug see how much they contain.

Look carefully at the millilitre scale and write down the objects and the ml it holds.

 

Activity 3

Can you find some larger objects today for example: paint bottle, milk bottle, cola bottle

Can you fill these objects and then using a measuring jug see how much they contain.

These objects will hold more liquid so you may need to add up your millilitres to convert it into litres.

Remember there are 1000 millilitres  in 1 litre

 

Activity 4

Take three different containers. Fill each container with liquid or rice using the same unit of measure e.g. A small cup.

Art – Friday

Two Easter craft activities you could try: 

Make some pretty tulips:

Use art straws and colour them green (carefully!) Then using a tulip shaped template, concertina this shape and then punch a hole through the centre. Then stick on the leaves. 

 

Make an Easter basket: 

You could decorate this with Easter drawings, pastel colour patterns or even pretty coloured paper to make a collage effect.

This week we will be looking at non-fiction texts and what features we would see in this type of books. Activities across the week: 

  1. Have a look through this powerpoint at different features you might find in a non-fiction book: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1axli0gxPn_vbqmnkW2kL7DeC7bB8Wqxa6IJ5ztpayHU/edit?usp=sharing Can you find some of these features in any non-fiction books you may have at home? 
  2. Contents pages organise the information into manageable sections of a book and they make it easy for the reader to navigate. Try this activity: Answer these questions after looking at a contents page:

  5. Can you measure how long you are? (lying down!) Use different non-standard units that you’ve used this week e.g. lolly sticks/sticks of 10/ pens (not pencils because they are different lengths) and centimetres.

Science – Tuesday

What do plants need to grow? Watch this clip to find out more: What do plants need to grow? – KS1 Science – BBC Bitesize 

Go outside to look at the plants you might have in your garden. Are they getting what they need? Or do they need more time to grow? 

Can you list what plants need? Think about light, soil of some kind to anchor the roots, water, time, space to grow. 

Task: Make a poster to display the items that a plant needs to grow successfully. Include labels to show each item a plant needs and how you can show it e.g. sunshine for light, watering can for water, a clock to show time.

 

PE – Wednesday 

If you can get outside into a garden, try practising throwing and catching a ball. Remember those key skills we practised – eyes on the ball, hug the ball into your body when you catch it and don’t throw it too high!
