Estimating Capacity

Last week, Year 4 were using estimation to check calculations – they were able to apply rounding of number, money and measurement to support estimation.

As part of our estimation work, we spent time looking at capacity and measurement. We were able to estimate the amount of liquid in a container – it was quite tricky when the containers were unusual sizes or shapes.

Once an estimation had been made, another member of the class checked accuracy using a measuring cylinder.
