During this time of isolation keep a diary of what life is like for you and your family. Write in the things you do to keep yourself occupied and how you are feeling. If you want you can type this diary. If you prefer just write it. You can add to your own diary by drawing a picture or adding in photos you take. Do your best, one or two sentences or maybe a a couple of paragraphs. I will enjoy reading these diaries when I get them. Hopefully Soon
Develop an Awareness of Length
- Use a ruler to draw lines showing 3cm, 8cm, 12cm, 17cm, 5cm & 10cm.
- Measure the length of things in your home. E.G the width of your front door, the length of your kitchen table, the length of your post box. Measure 10 different things in your home and write down what you measured and the length of them. You can use a measuring tape if your family have one, if not use the palm of your hand to measure things. How many hands long is each item.
