Hey Year 1,
We hope you enjoyed the story of Titch last week and have had a go at growing something of your own. We have been growing our own plants. Miss Tinley is experimenting with regrowing spring onions, Mrs Grindrod is growing cress and trying to sprout brown lentils and Ms James is growing cucumber, wild flowers, pumkin and Irises. When they are fully grown we will use our maths length and height knowledge to put our plants in order of height.
If you have started to grow anything you can send us your pictures on twitter @lyppardYear1 or @lyppardschool.
We hope you have a lovely bank holiday on Friday celebrating VE day!

This week we thought you could look at another story about growing - Jack and the Beanstalk. You might have the story of Jack and the Beanstalk at home. If you haven't, you can watch the story on BBC Teach. It is about a little boy who gets some magic beans which grow into a very tall beanstalk!
Measure - Capacity
We would like you to introduce to volume and capacity to your child. They should explore the concept in a practical way, using a variety of containers. Your child should compare the volume in a container by describing whether it is full, nearly full, empty or nearly empty. They can measure the capacity of different containers using non-standard units of measure. They should understand that the unit of measure must stay the same, for example using the same cup or the same spoon to measure.
Here are the types of questions you could ask your child about volume and capacity:
Learning through play ideas to help your child understand volume and capacity.
You do not need to do all of these activities - pick and choose the ones that you have resources for and would most interest your child.
We have allocated your child two new books for this week. Remind them to click on the bugs and answer the questions.
