Weights and Measures Scavenger Hunt!
To kick start our learning about weights and measures children embarked on a scavenger hunt which took them all around school and even outside! Pupils had great fun reminding themselves of the language we use when talking about weights and measures as well as learning new vocabulary and skills, such as using a ruler to accurately measure 10 cm.
We also measured how many jumps we could do. We worked in pairs for this as it was a tricky activity to measure.
Finally we had to carry out an investigation to see if the item each pair thought would float did.
Each pair took it in turns to describe their item and explain why they thought it would float. Next we voted on if we thought it would float or sink and different children explained their vote each time. Finally pupils tested out their item in our water tray.
Counting to 10
Chance, Harley, Hunter and Logan worked really hard collecting different items in tens. They worked as a team and then individually to count up items all the way to number 10! As you can see they where very proud of there efforts and so are we!
