The Story Of The Ugly Sharkling

Phil, Harry and the shark. You can watch the story here...

Volume, Capacity and Measuring

Next week in maths we are going to be learning about measuring.
We will be working outside in the playground measuring with metre sticks, trundle wheels and tape measures.

We will be working inside measuring volume and capacity with a range of standard and non-standard containers.

We will also be weighing objects using scales and recording the weight of them to compare.

To be able to measure accurately, we need to understand how to read various scales and units of measure. This will be the focus of our activities this week.

Here are some games you can try to get your brain working....
