Year 2, Measuring, 19.9.19
Year 2 have been looking at measuring objects and comparing their lengths. We had to look at which was bigger 1cm or 1m and why.
We had lots of interesting conversations about the accuracy of our measuring when we measured then ordered ourselves.
Year 6 have been putting their measurement skills to good use today to create Archimedean spirals. Skilfully using protractors and rulers, they investigated how to change the spirals they created, making the spirals tighter and changing the size of them.
We have been investigating different ways to use measure in Palm Class.
We used thermometers, weighing scales, rulers, metre sticks and measuring jugs in our practical investigations.
We collaborated together, to identify and read different measurement scales on the equipment.
Kg, g, m, cm, mm, ml, l and celsius… What did we use these for?
Tell someone at home about these units of measurement and when we used them to measure and compare length, capacity and mass.
What is the capacity of the bottle below? Explain your answer to someone at home.
What is the number line below counting in?
What could you write or draw to help you work this out?
We have been taking all sorts of measurements today. Can you remember the units for the different measurements? What could you measure at home?
Today the children had a go at converting between different measurements. The children used their prior learning and were able to make links between the units.
Have a look at all the units of measure the children identified!
