Today we are still thinking about weight but we are becoming more accurate in our measuring as we are going to start using weighing scales. The scales can go up in different increments such as 1's 2's 5's and 10's which you all know from class. Have a go at reading the scales in the link below.
Parents- If your child is finding it too easy or too tricky the increments on the scales can be changed by clicking on the three lines to the side of the scales.
The best way to learn about reading scales is by using scales in real life.
Miss Yeomans' Challenge
I challenge you Year 1 to use scales in your home to bake something- it can be something small, something big, one thing or lots of little things. Post your baking on the blog to show off your scales work and culinary success.
Tune into the Youtube channel to watch Ruth Miskin's phonics sessions for Set 3 sounds at 10.30am or 1.30pm.
Don't forget phonics play which has some fantastic learning games to help your phonics even further!
Another phonics activity is watching the Alphablocks on Youtube (parents please be advised adverts linked to the Youtube link may not be suitable for young children).
After being inspired by all your amazing artwork, I thought setting an art task would be perfect for you. We are going to be thinking about printing using Lego or Duplo blocks. Make sure you ask your parents before starting your artwork!
When we print we don't:
- put too much or too little paint on the brick
-don't slide the brick but pick it up and pull it up away from the paper
You can try printing the bricks in a pattern, making letters, creating a picture or create a 'kaleidoscope effect' by overlapping the colours and offsetting the brick prints.
Once you painting is finished grab an adult and share with them what patterns and shapes you have printed and why you have chosen the colours you have used.
