Our new topic in maths is to learn about length, on the first day this was discussed some children chose to take out the unifix bricks and see how long they could make it. Once made we discussed what we could measure and the children decided on seeing how many children were the same height.
The children then wanted to know how many unifix was used. They decided there was too many to count in ones so they broke the line up into groups of 10 then counted the groups in 10s.
The children have continued their learning about length by learning to use the mathematical language, comparing objects and measuring using non-standard units.
