Friday-Shape,Space and Measure

Good morning everyone! Todays home learning is all about measuring length and height - how long and how tall.

Remember to do your PE with Joe workout too!

1. Write a sentence and draw a picture for your home learning diary. 


2. Challenge: Draw around your hand and cut it out. Now use your hand cut out to measure different objects in your house. Watch the video below for a demonstration of the activity.

Extension: Record the length of the objects that you measure e.g. sofa=10 hands and then use your recordings to find out which object is the longest and which one is the shortest. 


3. Click on the link to play a fun measuring game. Will you be able to find the shortest and longest animals at the zoo?


4. If you have a printer, print out this sheet and have a go at measuring the different space objects.  You will need a ruler or a tape measure and a grown up to help you. If you can't print the sheets use your ruler to measure small objects around your house.

5. Remember to send us photos of your work or anything else you get up to during your home learning day. We love seeing all of the amazing learning that you are doing at home!
