In year 6 we conducted an investigation into capacity and weight using a variety of equipment. The children took real ownership for their learning, estimating, deciding their hypothesis and practising reading different scales to determine their results.

They worked extremely well in their pairs and groups and were able to proudly announce their findings and what they had learnt by the end of the lesson.

This experience has helped the children develop a benchmark understanding of how much given weights and measures are for future, more abstract, learning.
