We are continuing our work on measurement this week by looking at capacity and volume. We will be estimating, measuring, reading scales, comparing and solving word problems. 

On Tuesday you will have a practical activity using water and a jug to measure. You will also need some containers/items from your Kitchen e.g. a cup, bottle, saucepan, bowl, a glass and a spoon. Ask an adult to help you with this.
