Measurement

In Room 14 this term we have been busy learning about different types of measurement. 
Measurement encompasses a large range of areas including temperature, time , length, mass and volume. Because there is so much to learn in this subject area this term we will be zooming in on two areas in particular including time and length

We started our unit with a what we already know activity this was lots of fun as we had to search around the class to find different stations and then work with our group to work out the correct answer 




We had 5 stations:
- Clock 
-Measuring Jugs 
- Thermometer
- Scales 
-Ruler


During this activity we had to think about what each item measured, what it was called,  and what unit we measured it in. It was very challenging but we worked together and tried our best! 



How you can help with our learning at home 
-Sing the months of the year song to help your child to remember the order of the months. 
- Look at a calendar with your child talk about important dates in the family such as birthdays and pop them on the calendar. 
- Encourage your child to help you read the time ask questions such as what number is the big hand on? What number is the small hand on?
