P3M Learning Together at Home, Wednesday 3 June

Hello everyone

I hope that you have been enjoying the amazing weather we have been having. It’s not as  nice today but the plants need some rain. Did anyone get caught in the rain yesterday? I got back from my walk just as it started. There is a special smell when rain falls after a hot spell of weather, did anyone smell it? It is called petrichor.

 

Here are your learning activities for today:

MEASURE

Remember millilitres and litres are the units we use when  we are measuring amounts of liquids.

Millilitres are used for measuring smaller amounts of liquid and litres are used when measuring larger amounts of liquid.

There are a thousand millilitres in 1 litre.

1 000 ml  = 1 l

We are going to think about some different sized containers in real life and whether they hold more or less than 1 litre.

Talk about these with someone at home or write the answers down in your jotter.

a. Does a paddling pool hold more or less than 1 litre?

b. Does a yoghurt pot hold more or less than 1 litre?

c. Does a large serving spoon hold more or less than 1 litre?

d. Does your kitchen sink hold more or less than 1 litre?

e. Does your bath hold more or less than 1 litre?

f. Does a soup bowl hold more or less than 1 litre?

If you are not sure, ask someone at home if you could use a measuring jug or use an old juice bottle which holds 1 litre to check your answers.

Have a look at these buckets. The scale on the buckets starts at 1 litre and goes up to 6 litres. They can each hold a total amount of 6 litres, but each bucket has a different amount or volume of liquid inside it. Volume is the amount of liquid or how much space the liquid takes up in a container.

The buckets can each hold a total of 6 litres .

Write the numbers 1 to 9 in your jotter and write down how many litres are in each bucket. Think carefully about questions 7 to 9. Remember there are 1 000 millilitres in 1 litre so think about how many ml would be in half a litre.

CHALLENGE

a. How many millilitres in bucket 1 ?

b. How many millilitres in buckets 2 and 3 together?

c. How many more litres in bucket 5 than bucket 6?

d. How much less is there in bucket 7 than there is in bucket 8?

e. How many litres in buckets 3, 4 and 5?

f. How many bucket 9s would you need to make 2litres?

 

 

LITERACY

spelling

Choose an activity from the grid to help you learn this week’s words.

 

Reading

BEAR time

I hope that you are all managing to find books that you are enjoying. Reading is a great way to escape into another world!
