P1B have just completed the first two sections of their mini-maths topic on measure. Before the Easter holidays they were investigating measuring length using non standard units of measure. This means instead of rulers and using cm or mm, we used our hands and cubes to investigate the length of classroom items. They did a fantastic job!
They have also investigated measuring the weight of different classroom items and finding out which is heavier or lighter. They have been using balancing scales to do this and have worked really hard with all their tasks.
The only area left to investigate is capacity, this will involve lots of hands on investigating if how much water cups, bowls and jugs can hold. We’ll hopefully he to do this outside as the weather continues to improve.
