Measuring 10.02.2012


Over the past three weeks we have been learning all about measuring. We learnt to use words such as big, small, long, short and tall whilst measuring size. We explored using non-standard methods of measuring size such as cubes and coins as well standard methods including calipers. Whilst talking about weight we used words such as heavy and light and made comparisons between the weights of objects using balance scales. Finally we learnt about capacity. This was a tricky form of measuring because, although we were very good at deciding if something was full or empty, it was sometimes a bit difficult to know which container would hold the most water and we had to explore this using small cups to make comparisons. We can't wait to come back to measure later on in the year.
