1st Class Work at Home – Week: June 8nd – June 12th 2020
Click the button below to see a social story about having a teams call with my teacher. This may be very useful for some children prior to their first group call.
Please send your email to the class teacher – this will allow them to send an invite for your child to join a group meeting online via Microsoft Teams.
The following video shows how to join a Microsoft Teams meeting:
- This week complete Capacity pgs. 145 – 148 in Cracking Maths
- Revise doubles tables e.g 2+2, 3+3, etc.
- Maths around the house: this week pay particular attention to capacity. Estimate, compare, measure and record capacity using non-standard units. Select and use appropriate non-standard measuring units and measurements e.g. cup, glass, etc. Then estimate, measure and record capacity using standard unit (the litre) and solve simple problems. Help your child to find things in the home measuring 1 litre (carton of milk, bottle of Fanta etc).
