In Year 1 we have been comparing heights and lengths to find longer or taller or shorter objects. This week we have begun to measure using rulers. We have learnt that we should use the end of the ruler where the numbers begin with 0. We have learnt that this end of the ruler must be held beside the bottom or end of the object in order to measure accurately. We have learnt the unit of measurement that is appropriate for assorted classroom equipment is the centimetre. Take a look at the Year 1 children practising their new skills.
