Good morning Year 1! We hope you are all well. Here is an overview of activities you can do at home over the next few days…
Maths – capacity and volume work
English – finish your chicken facts/book and do some of the Chicken Licken tasks
Phonics – write some silly sentences and do the phonics detective sheets
Science – learn about the life cycle of a chicken
Art – create a rainbow
This week we would be learning all about capacity and volume.
Have a go at the White Rose lessons. This is a great video and is a full capacity lesson. https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/
If you can, explore capacity in a practical way using different containers and water. Fill up different sized containers whilst you have a bath or are playing in your garden. You could even create delicious ‘mocktails’ for your family. Please encourage children to compare the containers using the vocabulary, full, nearly full, empty or nearly empty. The work sheets are also attached to the end of this section too.
Can you compare the drinks? Which drink would you prefer? Why?
Can you use the language of less and more? Compare these two drinks. Which has less? Which has more?
Can you try solving this problem?
Lesson 2 – measuring capacity
The capacity of these containers is how much it can hold.
You could practically estimate using your own containers and cups too!
How many glasses will fill 2 fish bowls? How could you work it out?
Can you complete these challenges?

Recap measuring game…
This week we are reading the traditional story ‘Chicken Licken’. Do you have a copy of this book at home? Enjoy listening to the story on this video.
Here are some activities you could do at home…
- You could draw a story path. What happened at the beginning, middle and end of the story? Draw the characters along the path. Can you label them? (You could use the one attached or draw a bigger path.)
- Write a happier ending to the story!!
- Make some paper puppets or masks and act out the story with your family.
- Make a list of rhyming animals – Rabbit Wabbit, Kitten Mitten, Shark Flark. Can you draw these characters?
Here are some more phonic detective sheets for you to use at home.
In school the children enjoy reading and writing their own silly sentences. “Can a blue teapot dance and sing?” “Do sharks read books at night and sleep in a bed?” “I saw a jumping dolphin in my garden!” Can they write one in the comment section of this blog post for their friends to read? What phonemes will you use in your sentences? Will you need a question mark or full stop?
What do you know about the life cycle of a chicken? This little video will tell you a few facts.
There is a comprehension activity attached too. (There are 3 differentiated levels – so choose which is best for your child).
We have seen lots of lovely rainbows everywhere. Can you create a rainbow to make everyone feel happy? You could maybe chalk one on your path or paint one on a pebble. Have fun being arty!
More of your amazing work and activities!
