Good Morning - Get your brains in gear by playing a game! Each game lets you pick the level and focus so you could pick multiplication or addition etc. Try to pick something that will challenge you a little!
Maths - Day 2
Learning Focus: To estimate and measure capacity.
Today you will be learning about capacity. Capacity is the measure of how much liquid a container can hold. Take a look at the poster below to show you the conversions and the website which will show you how to read a simple scale.

You can watch the video tutorial too which shows you how to complete the sheet.
Find 6 different containers - try to find a range of short, tall, shallow etc to use. Do this either outside or somewhere where it doesn’t matter if the water overflows.
1: Begin by putting the containers in order from smallest capacity to largest. This is an estimate at this point!
2: Fill the smallest container with water.
3: Now pour that water into the next smallest.
** If you are correct - the second container won’t be full up!
** If it overflows then you have them the wrong way round.
4: If you were correct - fill the second container up and then pour into the third. (See step 3 for the check of if you were correct!)
4a: If you were wrong - swap the container 1 and 2 and then repeat step 3 to check.
Keep repeating this!
For the final check fill the largest container to the top and then pour the water into each container - each one should overflow if you are correct!
