Giants and capacity in Year 1!
Friday 30th April | No comments yet
We have continued to read different versions of Jack and the Beanstalk and looked in detail at the giants in the books. The children then wrote a description of a giant using lots of great right choice words.
In grammar this week we have been focusing on plurals. The children did various tasks and have been looking at the spelling patterns. They matched singular and plural words and sorted them according to their endings s/es/ies.
We have revised a-e/ai/ay/ea/e-e/ey/ee/oa/oe/ow/o-e in our daily phonic lessons.
This week we have been learning about capacity and volume.
The children have had lots of fun showing us containers which are full, almost full, empty, half full, almost empty. We have compared the size of containers and found out their capacity by using cups to measure.
We have also solved some capacity problems…
