Weight and Capacity.

This week the children in Reception have been exploring weight and capacity.

We enjoyed sharing our views on which container would hold the most water. Initially many children thought the tall container would hold more, but after measuring how many cups of water it took to fill each container, the children soon realised that the shorter container had the greater volume.

Many children are now beginning to use measures related vocabulary with more accuracy and they can compare objects by size and weight.
