Hi - we are a class of 21 Year 2 and 3 kids from Bradford School in Dunedin. Ms Little is our teacher from Monday to Thursday and then Mrs Mitchell-Bain is our teacher on Fridays. Aren't we lucky?! Two teachers! We hope you enjoy reading our blog to see how much we have been learning.

We are continuing to learn different ways to measure things. Today we used 1 centimetre cubes to measure our hand-spans. We remembered last week's key points.
Use the same unit
Start at the start
Place the units end to end
Because we were using 1 centimetre cubes, we now know how many centimetres our hands are from the tip of our little finger to the tip of our thumb, in a straight line.
We discovered that 1 centimetre is about the same width as a finger so we went around the room trying to spot things that were close to 1 centimetre, then checking with our fingers.
I am really enjoying being back in Room 4 on Fridays. See you next week. Mrs B : )
