Today in maths, Year 5 used a variety of scaled containers to measure how much water was in them. We had to think very carefully about the scale being used and the unit of measurement. This will help us when designing and carrying out our science experiments with solutions.
Year 6 have been investigating units of measure. They started out looking at length and measuring objects in the classroom and then they used weighing scales to measure the mass.
Reading scales and converting measures is a very important skill to have.
In FS2, a key focus this week has been deepening the children’s understanding of 5 as a quantity by linking the number itself to the 5 fingers on one hand. Our work has helped to underline the ‘fiveness’ of 5. Isn’t maths fun!
This week Year 1 have been busy comparing lengths and heights and using the language of taller, shorter, longer.
They have been using non-standard units to measure various items.
