Maths Detectives…

We enjoyed taking our learning outside today when learning about volume. We used cups to measure how much water each container holds and used vocabulary such as: full, half full, almost full and empty to describe our observations. 

We found out that the lemonade and milk bottles have the greatest volume as they both hold 9 1/2 cups of water which we now know is the same as 2 litres.

The hand sanitiser bottle holds the least amount of water as it only filled half of our cup.


Can you find anything in your house that holds more liquid than a 2 litre milk bottle?

  1. Hello 2S,
    I’ve missed you all this week at lunchtime, how has your week been?

    What a great idea to take your learning outside, especially when water is involved and on such a lovely day too.

    I found a fabric conditioner bottle under my kitchen sink that holds 3 litres of liquid. Did anybody else find anything at home?

    Looking forward to seeing all your smiley faces next week 2S!
    Mrs Robottom 🙂
