Speaking and Listening:

 

Maths

  • Use magnetic numbers or number cards to recognise and order numbers.
  • Play counting games online - https://www.topmarks.co.uk/Search.aspx?q=counting or www.twinkl.co.uk/resource/tg-ga-31-too-many-frogs-counting-up-to-10-game
  • Play board games such as Snakes and Ladders or Ludo or roll a dice and collect that number of objects. Who can do it the quickest?
  • Build towers of different colours of bricks. Count how many bricks you have. Can you add one or take one away? How many do you have now? Compare 2 different coloured towers. Is one taller? Or shorter? Or are they both the same?
  • Roll two dice and build a tower for each number. How many do you have altogether? Can you practice writing this as a sum – e.g. 2 + 3 = 5
  • Capacity – use lots of different containers to fill with water/rice/flour/sand. Can you make the container full? Can you make it empty? What about half-full? Can you fill a container to the top accurately?
  • Watch Kit and Pup to learn about ‘full’ and ‘empty’ - https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b0bc2c0k/kit-pup-series-1-8-full-and-empty

  • https://www.twinkl.co.uk/resource/t-n-2545119-how-much-does-it-hold-activity-sheet have a go at guessing which container holds the most – you can do this with actual containers too.
  • Try using non-standard measures to compare the capacity of 2 containers e.g. find out how many cups of water will fit into each one; or how many bricks will fit. Can you use this information to tell you which container holds the most / least?
  • Look at containers in your house that hold liquid such as different sized drinks bottles. Can you find where it tells you how much the bottle holds? Practice reading amounts in litres and millilitres using these bottles or a measuring jug, syringe, etc. Can you measure an amount accurately?

 

RE

  • Our World – learn about the importance of keeping our world clean. Watch the clip https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gEk6JLJNg0U from 2 minutes in is the key part, but the first minute is useful.
  • Try keeping your environment clean – help to put rubbish in the bin at home. If you see litter on the street outside, pick it up and put it in the bin.

DT

  • Use any type of construction resources (bricks/lego/junk modelling from recycled materials) to make a seaside scene. You could even do this on a larger scale and find bits around the house and make a beach in the garden – get creative!

 

Art

  • Make a puffy paint ocean picture. You will need to mix together: a paint brush, a spoon to mix, 1 tbsp self-raising flour, food colouring (greens and blues), 1 tbsp salt, a little bit of water; start with ¼ tsp per colour. Puffy paint should have a thick puffy like consistency when mixed together – this will look really effective when you paint your sea pictures.
