Week Beginning 11th May - Capacity (Continued)

Last week, we started learning about capacity. Go through this PowerPoint with your grown-up to see what you remember.

Ask your grown-up to help you fill a mug with water. Which containers in your house do you think would hold more water than a mug and which would hold less than a mug? Write these in a table in your red book. You can use the pictures below to help you get started.

Draw a table like this.

How many mugs of water do you think it will take to fill different containers in your house? With your grown up, try it out and record your findings in a table like the one below.

Ask your grown-up to go through this PowerPoint with you on using millilitres (ml) and litres (l) to measure capacity.

In your red book, make two columns, one for millilitres (ml) and one for litres (l). Can you write or draw some things in each column that you would measure using millilitres (ml) or litres (l)? Start by sorting the items below and then add some of your own.

Look at these items Miss Sharkey found in her house. They all contain liquids and they are all measured in millilitres (ml). Can you find the capacity of each one?

With your grown-up, find some different liquids in your house and look at their capacity on the container. Draw, label and write their capacity your red book, using millilitres (ml) or litres (l).

How much water is in each jug? Remember to check the scale on each jug; does it go up in 1s or 2s? Record your answers in your red book.
