Year 3 learn about capacity

This week in maths year 3 are learning about capacity.

Earlier in the week, they used their prediction skills to estimate the size of a puddle from containers with different capacities. The children drew a circle with chalk on the playground and then poured the water out to form a puddle. Lots of the class had very close predictions, as you can see from the photos below!

‘I had to think about the size of the container as well as the volume of water’ Hamit, Northern Ireland.

‘I looked at the measurement scale on the side of the jug to help me with my prediction’ Kellis, Northern Ireland.
