Develop your child's estimation and practical measuring skills by measuring a range of things. You can: 

  • Get them to calculate their height and even family members - Talk about it and compare the findings 
  • Get your child weighing different resources - Talk about volume and capacity -How much water will this jug hold? How many cotton wools will it take to fill up a container? 
  • Go on a measure hunt outdoor - find an object taller than 30cm? shorter than 30cm? Find something longer than 1m? 

Year 1 will be looking at a range of stories, rhymes and poems.

How many faces? How many sides/edges? How is it different to that shape? How is it similar? Where can you see this shape? What does it remind you of?

The children have been engaging with practical scientific methods, processes and skills. The children have been asking questions and recognising that they can be answered in different ways. Children investigated and observed a range of experiments, gathering information and building on their scientific understanding. Have a look at some of the things we have been doing!
