English

Today's focus is to be able to form curly caterpillar letters and use them when writing sentences that contain exclamation marks. Start by reading through the 'Learn' section.

 

Activity 1

  • Firstly, write each of the caterpillar letters on a piece of paper, making sure you form each letter correctly.
    Remember, the caterpillar letters are: a, q, o, s, c, f, g, e and d.

  • Secondly, once you've completed forming each letter, see if you can complete the chart below by entering items that begin with each of the curly caterpillar letters.

Activity 2: Using exclamation marks

Write sentences that use exclamation marks to show that somebody is the following:

  • surprised
  • scared
  • angry
  • excited

Try and write two sentences for each of the above. Don't forget your exclamation marks at the end of each sentence!

 

Activity 3: Let's debate

Watch the short video about Goldilocks and the three bears.

  • Choose a character who you would like to write as; you could choose one of the bears, Goldilocks or the judge.
  • Write five sentences that you would say in the 'Tell the Truth' court to explain what happened from your point of view.
  • Include exclamation marks in at least three of your sentences.

Once you've finished, write the feeling/emotion that your exclamation mark represents. For example: I went upstairs and I couldn't believe it. Somebody was sleeping in my bed! The exclamation mark here represents surprise.

 

 

Maths

Today's focus is learning how to measure the capacity of different objects and compare volume. Start by reading through the 'Learn' section and watch the short video.

 

Activity 1

1. For this activity you will need to find about five different sized cups from your kitchen.

2. Place the cups in what you estimate is the order from largest capacity to smallest capacity.

3. With an adult to supervise you, pour water from the smallest glass to the next largest and so on, to check if your order is correct.

Hint

If the next cup overflows, what does this mean?

 

 

Activity 2

Container Conundrum

1. For this activity you will need to find a big container and a little container (these could be cups, bottles, jugs or bowls).

2. Estimate how many little containers it would take to fill up the big container.

3. Check your answer by filling the little container with water then pouring it into the big container – did you guess right?

Remember to ask an adult to help you, you don't want to make a big mess!
