Our focus for maths this term in Year 1 is Measure.
The children will be developing their mathematical thinking by comparing, describing and solving practical problems for lengths and heights, mass and weight, capacity and volume.
Develop your child's estimation and practical measuring skills by measuring a range of things. You can:
- Get them to calculate their height and even family members - Talk about it and compare the findings
- Get your child weighing different resources - Talk about volume and capacity -How much water will this jug hold? How many cotton wools will it take to fill up a container?
- Go on a measure hunt outdoor - find an object taller than 30cm? shorter than 30cm? Find something longer than 1m?
