More Measuring in Bowfell

This week has been all about estimating and measuring in Bowfell.  We started with a treasure hunt all around school on Monday trying to find the objects in our photographs.  Once we had identified the pictures; we each estimated the length of the objects before we measured them using unifix blocks.

On Wednesday, we started to explore capacity and volume.  We have learnt lots of new vocabulary like: greater than, smaller than, half full, empty and full.  We worked well together comparing different containers; sometimes we were surprised because they could hold more or less water than we expected.

Next week we will be having more fun with our learning when we move on to weighing!
