Maths in the garden – measurement

As part of our outdoor learning last week – Year 4 put their measuring skills into practice.

They were set different challenges to find the trees with he largest and smallest measurements around the tree trunk.

Once we collected the information, we recorded on whiteboard and were able to work out the difference between the measurements.

We knew that we could also find the average measurement by dividing by the number of trees we could measure.

We thought about other measuring tasks we could do – next we could measure the distance between the trees and see if there was any particular pattern used when the trees were first planted.
