To identify errors in writing
Using the BBC bitesize lesson here complete the activities given. Before starting on this though, discuss with your child what errors are and what sort of errors could be made when writing e.g spelling, full stops, capital letters etc. Watch the video on how to identify errors in writing. The complete each of the activities. You may also decide to find a piece of work they have previously done and ask them to then apply their skills and knowledge and identify and correct any errors. 

To carry out Maths bingo within the environment 
Maths is all around us without even realising. Using the information below, I want you to see how many things you can find in and out of the house that match each of the items- See if you can get a full house! It would be lovely if you could take photos and make a pic collage with each photo to show you have achieved each one. Or you may  decide to make a table on the computer and upload a photo to each box. Can you add text to your photos stating the item to prove it matches what's in the grid? For example you may find a double digit number on packaging/ parallel lines on a radiator etc. 

To explore water absorption
What does it mean? What can you think of that absorbs water? How do we know it has absorbed water? colour? weight? texture? etc. You may decide to test this out with a few things inside the house first so the children understand this and know what to look out for. We have covered this so they should hopefully remember! Once they are familiar with the idea of absorption- take it outside. Ideally use a muffin/ cup cake tray or something with several compartments for the children to collect things in. Nothing too deep. Ask the children to go around and collect a variety of things from the garden/ walk e.g. grass/ mud/ rock/ petal/ stick etc etc. Once they have approx 6-10 different things allow them to pour some water over each- make sure it is the same amount of water each time for a fair test- you could also discuss this with them and ask what you can do to make it fair. Ask the children to record their observations before the water is poured too so they can see a comparison with the item when it is dry and then wet.  Watch what happens. They then record their observations and what they notice- they could create a table for this or they could record themselves speaking. What have you noticed about what  has happened to the item? Has the colour changed? The texture? The weight? The shape? What about the water- has it sunk/ stayed the same? Why do you think some things absorb water more than others?
