Primary Two have been developing their thinking skills in Maths. First they had to realise that not all of the children in P2 will have the same size of feet. So, we drew round our feet and then we compared the sizes. Once we had done this we had to come up with a way of measuring that could be used to measure everyone’s feet. Eventually someone thought about using cubes to measure feet sizes.
Once we had done this activity and compared our different sizes of feet we were given the challenge of measuring different sizes of straws.
Again we used cubes to measure the straws and this helped us to compare their lengths accurately using the same form of measure.
