That’s the weigh to do it!

Posted on: 21 Jan 2016 by Weston Green School | Category: Key Stage 2, Year 5

That’s the weigh to do it!

Year 5 enjoyed a hands-on maths lesson today, estimating the weight of various food items borrowed from the kitchen (such as rice, pasta and potatoes), and the volume of some coloured liquids in a variety of different shaped containers.

Reading scales is one of those tricky things that really requires the children to do it for themselves. A number of the children also go to cookery club and have been getting some more experience there. It would be great if parents could also encourage them to join them in the kitchen for some real-life weighing and measuring.
