On Tuesday 27th March we had a fantastic family learning afternoon sharing our learning about measurement. We got to be ‘teachers’ for the afternoon and our parents/grandparents got to be the ‘pupils’.
The activities which were on offer were:
1) Estimating and measuring toy dinosaurs with paperclips
2) Using cubes to measure the length of dinosaur pictures.
3) Estimating and measuring the lengths of items in the classroom with our hands.
4) Estimating and measuring the lengths of items in the classroom with our feet.
5) Measurement scavenger hunt in the playground.
6) Using metre sticks and trundle wheels to measure the length of dinosaurs in the playground.
Here are some photos of us in action:
Lucas – ‘My mummy didn’t really know much about measuring so I liked teaching her all the things she didn’t know.’
George – ‘I liked measuring lots of dinosaurs with my mum.’
Anna – ‘Me and my mummy had to work together to measure the tree.’
Rosie – ‘I told my dad to bring his measuring tape so we didn’t need to use the trundle wheel.’
Johnny – ‘I taught my grandma how to measure because when she estimated it was not very close to the right answer. Now she knows how to do it.’
Marissa – ‘Granny helped me with the writing and I helped her with the measuring.’
