Getting the Measure of the Situation

Class 4 have had a busy few weeks! Alongside SATs for our older pupils, we have also been getting out and about in the school grounds to answer the question “how can we measure that?”

To make sense of the world around us, it’s good to have a way of talking about the sizes of things. We could measure the distance of a line (perhaps in meters), the area of a 2d shape (meters squared) or the volume of a shape (meters cubed!) If we had a really awkward 3d shape, we could also measure its’ volume in liters.

We’ve been measuring all sorts of things in all sorts of ways – check out the pictures below to see what we’ve been up to!
