Today’s Maths is Lesson 4 all about finding half and you can find it here https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-1/
There are lots of ways to make this practical. If you have some scrap paper you can cut out some shapes and then see if you can find different ways to fold them in half. Remember if it’s half then both parts must be equal!

Science Home Learning
Our science topic this term is plants.
What is a plant? Sounds like a silly question but it might be harder than you think…
Look through these slides to find out more…
Here is a video – can you describe what you see. How do you think it was filmed?
Explore: When you go out for a daily walk why not try noticing what plants you can see. Or look out of your window – Can you see any plants?
If your adult has a smart phone then they may be able to download an app that can help identify plants – ‘picture this’ has a free 7 day trail.
Do: It’s always fun to try and grow your own plants – although not always easy! Why not try planting some seeds and seeing if they will grow – you could add a weekly diary to your blue book showing what it looks like each week and describing the changes.
