We love measuring!

During Maths Week Scotland the children were measuring each other and helped to create a height chart. We used comparative language to discuss who was the tallest, smallest and even the mediumest!

 

The children have continued their love of measuring into this week but are now interested in measuring by weight. We have been using the scales to find out which objects are the heaviest and have been further developing our maths skills by counting how many blocks we need to use to balance the scales.


L said, “This side is heavier.”   Then after adding blocks to the other side, C said,  “It’s the same now.”


L said, “The arrow is in the middle.”  C said, “It’s balanced!”

I wonder what we will measure next… 📏⚖️😄
