Measuring Madness!

28th Mar 2018

P2 have been investigating measure this week - without a ruler in sight!  They were learning how to use non standard measure such as hand span and foot size. Using hands and feet they measured a variety of objects from cupboards to window lengths and chairs to tables. They discovered that everyone's results were slightly different and after a good think discovered it was because their hands and feet were different sizes.  Continuing with their practical work they switched to measuring with cubes and were delighted to find that their answers were now the same.  The outcome of the lesson was discovering that it is VERY important to use a standard size when measuring.  Well done p2, you workede very hard and counted brilliantly!!
