Measuring with non-standard measures.
As part of out maths learning in Year 1, we have been learning how to measure the length of objects using non-standard measures. We have found that we can use almost anything in our classroom to measure with - so long as the units we use are the same size. We have also found that the larger the units we are measuring with, the fewer of them we need and vice versa. We can explain this to you at home if you like!
