Reception had a visit from Capacity Man in maths last week! With help from Capacity Man they spent the week learning about capacity and how to describe it using the correct terminology. The children had to estimate how much multi link would fill a variety of containers and order paint bottles and posters. As part of their teacher job the children accurately ordered the coloured bottles from empty to nearly full. They then had a chance to follow a rainbow recipe to make a magic potion! The children took it in turns to correctly measure separate parts of the potion before mixing it together, showing a fantastic understanding of capacity and colour mixing.
Watch this space! As this week in outdoor learning, Reception get to explore capacity in the sandpit. Great work Reception!
