  • Numeracy- Measurement Activities

The Numeracy focus for this lesson was measurements. The children learned to use centimetres to measure different objects. Here they can be seen with their measuring tapes, estimating and measuring a variety of objects around the classroom. The children learned that in order to measure accurately they will need to line up the object to the 0 mark of their measuring tool. From this activity, the children were able to incorporate their knowledge of fractions into fractions of measurements. Children will then begin to measure larger objects using metres. We will explore when it is better to measure items in centimetres or metres and discuss the reasons why. Children do not convert from metres to centimetres however they may start to see that 100 centimetres is the same as 1 metre and measurements can be written as mixed units e.g. The child is 1 metre and 25 centimetres tall. In Year 2, the children are expected to use the appropriate standard unit of measurement for height/length (cm/m), weight (kg/g), temperature (degree Celsius) and capacity (l/ml).
