Year 2 have been very busy this week exploring and measuring length. 

We have linked our maths learning with the book that we have started to read- Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. 

The children measured chocolate bars using cubes and centimeters! We wished they were longer! 

In the classroom they compared the lengths of their arms and legs to their friends'.

On the playground we discovered who could run the furthest in 3 seconds, who could throw the furthest and who could jump the longest. 

We also linked our maths with Science. We were investigating the length of snakes and how long our vivariums should be to keep them safe. 

We found the longest vivarium we needed was more than 100cm! 

What a busy week of maths it has been!
