Ideas for SAND PLAY
Playing with sand provides many learning opportunities. Many water play containers can also be used in sand.
Since dry sand and wet sand behave in different ways, it is worth giving your child experience of both. Junk materials such as yoghurt pots or boxes, as well as shapes which can be used as moulds aid manipulative skills. And let's not forget buckets and spades. All these can be used for counting activities, looking at shapes and comparing weights and lengths.
A set of old scales or a balance scales are excellent for estimation and comparison of weights. The activities lend themselves to exploring the language of capacity such as 'more than', 'less than', 'empty' and 'full'.
This week Year 2's are practising their 10 times tables, making even groups and looking at odd and even numbers.
Below are the daily video links and the worksheets to complete.
Remember you can practise your times tables on TT Rockstars too!
