Hi you lot,
Welcome back to week 8 of Home learning.
Can you believe it, it's been such a long time since we were all together.
We hope you're all well and have enjoyed the rest and the lovely weather during half term.
It's such a strange time for all of us and we want to make sure that you feel supported so if there is anything you want to talk to us about or if we can help with something - please email us and we'll see what we can do.

Today you are going to be having some water fun. While you are having fun playing with the water think about what we might be exploring in maths this week!
Collect a bucket or large bowl full of water and lots of different size containers.
Play guessing games with a family member, how many cups to fill the small bottle? Large Bottle? The jug? The jar?
Put 2 large containers at one end of the garden and have a race who can fill their container to the top first?
Put some washing liquid in to make bubbles – what happens to the bubbles in the bottle if you keep pouring water in without bubbles?
HAVE YOU GUESSED WHAT WE WILL BE EXPLORING IN MATHS THIS WEEK?

Watch the clips below to learn more about capacity.
Follow the steps below to complete the water capacity activity, before you begin think about how you are going to record your estimating and results. You can copy the table below into your book or print off the sheet or you can use your own way of recording your thinking.
First find 3 different sized large containers and label them A, B & C, 1 plastic cup and 1 large bowl of water.
Decide which container you think will hold the most and the least amount of water.
Next estimate how many cups of water each container will hold.
Finally find out if your estimation was correct, count the number of cups of water you need to fill each container.

You may choose one of the activities above or you can challenge yourself to move your learning along.
Take a moment to think about all the types of measuring we have done in class. Can you recall that items can be measured using non-standard units and standard units?
If I wanted to measure the length of a book I could use cubes (non-standard units) or a ruler measuring in centimetres which can be written as cm or measuring in metres which can be written m (standard units)
If I wanted to measure the weight of a book I would use scales and I could use marbles (non-standard units) or I could use grams which can be written as g or kilograms which can be written as kg (standard units)
This week you have been measuring capacity using cups which is non-standard units. The standard unit of measurement for capacity is millilitres which can be written as ml or litres which can be written l
Watch the clips below to challenge your thinking and understanding about capacity. ONLY watch the first clip for the first 6 minutes as it might confuse you if you watch anymore.
Then open the Power Point and work your way through each slide giving your answers before the next click. To play the PowerPoint click on the 'slideshow' tab, then click 'Play from beginning slide' tab.
Now if you like complete one of the sheets from above but find out how many millilitres (ml) standard units the containers hold not how many pots non-standard units, then just have fun with water. Perhaps play water races with your family. Who can keep the most water in their cup while running up and down the garden!

All groups – Big Maths CLIC sheet. Before you complete the Big Maths Addition Sheet I would like you to think about the following questions and please let us know by email where you are at with your learning and your mental recall of addition. Click on images below to open
How many correct answers are you getting each week?
Are you doing it at your own pace?
Are you using objects or quick mental recall?
Are you timing yourself?
If you are timing yourself, what is your time for completing all 17, is it 5 minutes, 3 minutes, 2 minutes, let us know
Are you getting them all correct in that time?
Stars - The idea of the Big Maths Addition sheet is to develop mental calculations. Once you have been successful in completing these weekly sheets correctly, begin to try and complete all calculations in a set time. Start initially with 3 or 2 minutes and as your mental calculation skills improve reduce the time each week. The Final goal is to be able to complete these sheets within 30 seconds. The sums are written in different orders each week!
Hexagons - As stars except perhaps start off with completing in 5 or 4 minutes and slowly reduce the time over the next few weeks.
Diamonds & Hearts - use objects or number line to help solve additions with no time limit.
