Rooted in Faith... Nurtured in Love... Striving for Success... Growing as God's Children

Week 8th - 12th February

This week the children will explore lengths, heights and weights, learning to compare each of these, using direct comparison. The children will lay lengths alongside each other, understanding the need for a baseline, and do the same with three items of different heights. They will then learn to measure a length or height using a non-standard uniform unit, such as a crayon or footprint. The children will compare items of the same size but different weight using balances and then measure these using uniform non-standard units such as conkers or pebbles.
