Year 2 at Fielding Primary: week beginning 10-Oct-2016


Maths

This week we are learning about length. We will begin by comparing objects and a metre stick. We will be using the greater than (>) and less than (<) signs. Following this we will be ordering length, before finally measuring lines and objects to the nearest centimetre. If you would like to practise this at home you could:

.....measure objects around the house

.....discuss what is greater than or less than a metre on a journey to school

.....discuss what apparatus would be best to measure an object.
