This week in Maths we will be learning about weight & length
We will spend the first 2 days looking at length and then 2 days on weight. Friday will be our 'mental maths' test.
Can your child tell you what we use to measure? Do you have a ruler at home if so look at it with them and show them how to use it. Explain how we use a ruler to measure and draw lines accurately. Teach them that we can measure in centimetres and that 100cm = 1 metre. Look at 2 different lengths of straw or string. Which is longer/shorter? How can we tell?
