Nazareth Homework 26th February 2020
This week in Maths we have been focusing on the language of measurement and comparing lengths using the vocabulary:
For homework I would either like them to go for a walk (weather permitting!) around the local area or look at items in the home and discuss with you what they notice about the lengths of various objects. The comparison language is what we are looking for.
For example, if they went to the park they could say:
This tree is taller than that tree which is the shortest. I think it is taller than the Eiffel Tower.
To challenge your child further, they could estimate how long they think it is? We will be doing this next week using non-standard units (units of measure that aren’t normally used E.g pencils, cubes, steps).
Any photos of the children completing this would be greatly appreciated. You can send these through seesaw or print if you’d prefer. We will talk about what we found out or saw next week.
