Capacity Boot Camp!

Capacity Boot Camp! by Mrs Russell and Mrs Wright
The children had lots of fun in Maths learning all about 'capacity'. We had an exciting water race against Class 3. We had to fill a plastic cup full of water and carry it over to another bucket without spilling it. The winner was the class with the most amount of water in their bucket. We had 2 races and we each won a race! Then we had fun doing lots of other water activities :
How many cups to fill the different size bottles?
A prove it challenge where we had to find the correct amount of cups to fill the bottle of water.
Fill the jugs with the correct amount of water from 25ml - 1000ml
Ordering bottles by their size. Estimate then prove it by measuring the bottles using water and cups.

We had great fun whilst we were learning even though we did get a bit wet!
