This week in Maths, Year 2 started a new topic called ‘Measurement’. The children have been practising how to measure in centimetres and metres. They measured objects in their classroom using a metre stick by making a guess of how long they thought the object was and then measuring it to check the length and width.
The children were also given 2 different lengths of paper. First, they had to measure the length using a ruler, then mark on the paper what length in centimetres the paper was. Next, the children had to find other children in the classroom with the same measurement as them. Finally, they worked together in groups to order the measurements from shortest to longest length.
