I hope you are all well and adjusting to the current situation.
Maths: The focus for maths this week is volume and capacity. I will attach a few work sheets as well as Powerpoints which can be used alongside them. The main focus is all about understanding key terms such as 'more than' and 'less than' and being able to use these to describe how much liquid different containers have in them.
English: When we are eventually back at school, we will be starting a new unit all about different animals. For English this week they can research and create different fact files about different animals. They can write about their favourite animal, where it lives, describe what it looks like, what it eats and any interesting facts about it. They can also be writing a diary each day of what they are doing and how they are feeling.
For a Geography focus, the children could create a world map and draw on where some of the different animals live.
Phonics: The Ruth Miskin Youtube channel has lots of valuable videos to help your child with their phonics. They are also doing live lesson videos (following the same structure used by the KS1 teachers in school). It can be found at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCo7fbLgY2oA_cFCIg9GdxtQ
I have attached a few guided reading / comprehension activities based on different animals.
