In Year 2, purple group have really enjoyed their new maths topic, ‘Measuring’.
Last week, the children used scales to measure objects. We talked about which objects were heavier and lighter.
The children also measured the lengths of objects using cubes and one day even used their feet to measure bigger things such as; the length of the classroom and the length of Miss Greenwell. Some other vocabulary terms that they became familiar with are longer and shorter.
Today, we looked at a word called ‘Capacity’. We had lots of fun estimating how many cupfuls of water it would take to fill up different sized containers. Our task ended a little bit messy!
