On Friday, we had a massive math measuring morning and focussed on understanding 1 metre length.
We learned to make estimates, or 'clever guesses' and we got better and better at estimating things that are about 1m long. Mrs Stewart wanted to do a little dance when she heard someone say later in the day "Your umbrella is about 1m long"!
We learned about using a table to record data and we had a laugh recording things we can't actually measure, but we know are much bigger than 1m long.
Next in Math, we are going to be learning about using a ruler to measure to the nearest millimetre.
