This week the children in year one have been looking at how we can measure mass. We used balance scales to compare the mass of objects and weigh objects using non-standard measurements.
Today the children were introduced to grams and we talked about how heavy certain foods are. The children then made their own rainbow cous cous salad, weighing out the ingredients and comparing the weight on the packet to the actual weight of the foods.
The children also developed their cutting skills and mastered the ‘claw’ and ‘bridge’ cutting technique. The children really enjoyed making their cous cous salad, but I think they had even more fun eating it!
