This week will be focusing on measure.  Your child needs to use measure vocabulary eg tall tallest short shortest long longest the same.  I have attached a maths plan from our White Rose scheme of work for you to read through and use where you feel appropriate.  There are some good questions on there that will extend your child.  There is also a you tube Length and Height video clip for you to share.

Monday - comparing lengths activity see below

Tuesday - measuring using non standard units.  For this activity, think with your child about different things you could measure around the house (size of the table, height of the chair, length of a book, length of a pair of scissors) or in your garden (length of the garden, height of a plant) and so on.  Using a non standard measure for instance lego bricks, pasta, pencils etc your child can measure the objects they have found.  there is no recording for this activity. Your child needs to measure accurately lining up the bottom of the object with whatever you're measuring with.

Wednesday - today you can use parts of your body to measure things around the house and garden.  For instance how many hands measure the table?  How many of your feet measure the floor?  Have fun using arms, legs, feet, hands!! Again no recording!

Thursday - using a ruler.  Talk about standard units of measure that we use today (cm and m).  Using a ruler can your child find objects loner than the ruler, shorter than the ruler or the same length as the ruler around the house or garden. Use the 25cm downloadable ruler below if you don't have one at home.

Friday - Your child needs to know how to use a ruler to measure accurately.  Demonstrate how to measure using the ruler - making sure you measure from the zero not the end of the ruler.  Use the You Tube clip below to help.  Show your child how to line the ruler up carefully with the object and read across.  Your child can then measure the pictures on the sheet.  For an extra challenge your child can cut out the pictures and place them in order of length from shortest to tallest.
