Capacity - We did a lot about capacity at the beginning of reception so I would like all children to be given the chance to revisit it. This can be done outside in the sunshine just using water and different sized cups. 

I have attached a capacity ppt that the children can look through and also attached some key words for you to use with them when discussing. 


Activity- fill up lots of different sized cups/container with water ( I usually add food colouring to make it a little more exciting). Ask the children to talk about which one has more in it? how an you check? Which one is empty? nearly full? half empty etc. This task is all about using the correct language for the children to understand.
