Friday 8th

Good morning everyone,  

We loved seeing the learning you did yesterday and can’t wait to see what brilliant learning you do today! 






The phonics session is made up of two parts.  

The first is the speed sound session. Please select the video appropriate to your child’s level (this was emailed to you): 

Set 1: v 

Set 2: ow 

Set 3: a-e 


The second is the reading. You will need to log into the Oxford Owl website and find the correct coloured book for your child. Your child should read the book 3 times before moving on, so that they become increasingly confident.  

Oxford owl:   


If you are in guided reading, please read the next chapter of George's Marvellous Medicine by Roald Dahl and answer the questions in full sentences.  We look forward to reading your answers. 


Maths – volume and capacity  

LO: to understand volume and capacity  

SC1: I can explain what volume means. 

SC2: I can explain what capacity means. 

SC3: I can solve volume and capacity problems.  

We have thought about measurement. Can you tell an adult what measurement means?  

We have looked at weight and mass. Can you tell an adult what weight and mass mean?  

Today we are going to look at 2 more types of measurement. These are called volume and capacity, and these are usually used for measuring liquids. What are liquids?  

Watch this video tutorial:    


The capacity is how much a container can hold.  


The bath holds more water than the water bottle, so the bath has a bigger capacity. Can you find 2 containers in your home and explain to an adult which one has a bigger capacity? 


The volume is how much a container is holding.  

We use the words: full, empty, half full, nearly full, nearly empty to describe the volume.  

Have a go at matching these words to the correct bottle:  

You could find a bottle or container in your home and see if you can fill it to these different volumes.  

Task 1 

Complete these questions: 

Challenge 1: if a cup is empty, does it have any capacity or volume?
