Welcome to Polar Bear Class
Weighing in Kilograms and Grams
We have been learning how to measure more accurately this week. To do this the children compared 1kg to half a kilogram, and learned to compare 200g to 500g; they learned that half a kilogram is the same as 500g. We looked at different packing to find the weight of items of food and estimated how much it weighed. The children will use their knowledge of counting in 2s, 5s and 10s to read weight measures more accurately next week.
I have asked the children to look out for weights on packages, but have told them to ask before they go looking in cupboards!
The children have had great fun today measuring, weighing, kneading and finally baking their bread like the King's baker in Pudding Lane.
They will practise writing their own instructions tomorrow using imperative verbs like weigh, knead and roll.
The children have really enjoyed showing off their Christmas hats and decorations.
