P2 recently finished their revision on Weight and Capacity. This was a fantastic opportunity for us to revisit our work and helped us to deepen our learning. It was also a chance for us to exercise some of our Learning Muscles, such as Distilling, Collaboration, Revising, Interdependence, Absorption and Capitalising.
Here is a small insight into this work. The ultimate aim was to make a set of posters for ourselves and others to help us remember and understand Measure.
Each table worked together to revise and note down everything we knew about each subject – in writing or pictures – then we peer-assessed the work and revised it further to make the improvements our peers recommended. This is the pupils’ learning in their own words and images. Here are some pictures of this process, and the final results. Can we teach you something new about measure?

The final posters:
Over the last few months, P2 have been expanding their knowledge, understanding and skills to do with Measure. There has been a lot to learn about this topic and we have already covered Length, Weight and Capacity.
Over the last week or so, we took time to find out how much we could actually remember and if we could apply our knowledge. We revised what we knew about length and the children produced fantastic posters summarising their learning. It took us a long time and lots of toil to remember what we had learned as we covered this work way back before Christmas. It was even harder, however, to try to explain what we knew! We imagined we were trying to explain our learning to our penpals. This helped us focus on what was important and to make sure we included everything we needed to know. We used words and illustrations to get the information across.
This was a demanding task that required us to use all of our Learning Muscles and Thinking Skills. As you can see, P2 did this in an exemplary way.
Have a look at our posters – can you see what we have been learning?
