Maths in Year 1 - measurement
Recently in Maths we have been thinking about measuring the mass or weight of objects ( in year 1 these two are considered to be one and the same)
We have introduced standard units of measure, namely the gram and the kilogram.
We began by weighing objects around the class and carefully recorded our findings in our maths books .
Later the same week ,we tried to see if the "weights" we have actually weigh the number of grams they are supposed to, and we wondered whether the scales were accurate.
We realised that accurate scales would be accurate when weighing out ingredients in a recipe.
