Reception learn about capacity

Wednesday 22nd June | No comments yet

This week the children are learning about capacity. They know that it is the space inside a container which is the capacity and the liquid or rice or sand in the container is the volume. We have talked about full, half full and empty. The children have also estimated how many small containers of rice will fill a large container and were remarkably accurate. Please ask the children about this at home and you could even practise this with your child by giving them containers to play with in the bath.
