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 **

Choose an activity from the reading grid for your group. These are in Teams under ‘files’ to save you scrolling back through blog posts.

**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!

**ASSIGNMENT**

There is a new assignment posted in the General channel in Teams. It is due next Wednesday 10th June.

Look out for the separate handwriting post.

Have a good day everyone.
