Perfect Maths on a Hot Day

Our Maths topic for this week is measures. Yesterday we had great fun with rulers and string and eventually tape measures measuring different parts of our bodies. Today, in the heat, we relocated to the shade of a tree to estimate and measure the capacity of a variety of different size bottles, pots and other containers. Ah… Bliss… The children were really enjoying themselves and the mathematical language that naturally arose as the children poured and compared, discussing litres and millilitres, was very encouraging.

Well done year 2!

Unsurprisingly, a few pieces of work had to be hung out to dry before they co us be filed…
