Recap number bonds to 10 by playing this game. Put pieces of pipe together that equal 10 and then turn the wheel. Next, with the help of an adult, look in your kitchen cupboards or in the garden shed etc. and select some different containers, e.g. different sized cups, jugs, bowls, pots or buckets, etc. Ask your child to predict which will hold the most/least water. Pour cups of water to see which holds the most/least. For objects that are similar in size, predict how much water it will hold. Watch the PowerPoint about measuring in ml and then use a measuring jug to read the capacity of your various containers.

Watch the video for ideas about transport. Use the Make a Vehicle template, cut out the 2D shapes and find different ways to put them together to create the vehicle. Be as creative and imaginative as you want. Why not colour them in and decorate them afterwards.

atch the video about temperature and using thermometers. Work with your child to measure the temperature of each room in your home using a thermometer (you can download a free one on most phones). Compare which room is the hottest/coldest? Discuss why this might be? Repeat the activity at a different time of the day. Does the temperature change? Why? Have some fun cutting and sticking Temperature Sorting Activity. Ask your child to separate the objects into the sections depending on how hot and cold they are.

Today’s reading task asked your child to create a tally chart of different types of transport. Why not make a tally of what you see pass near your home. How many people, cars, bikes, lorries, vans, buses, coaches, prams, or even Segways can you count pass by? Record these in a list and tally them up. Challenge your child to use the information to create a simple bar chart. (Bar chart template). You may want to attempt a pictogram using the same template, but use a simple drawing to represent each unit instead of solid colour. Alternatively, for a further challenge you may want to challenge your child to complete the Tally and bar chart with questions. This has some simple questions to answer afterwards to compare the results. Good luck!
