Reading scales

This week we have been looking at measures and today we had the chance to bake some cookies and use the skills we had learnt in the classroom. We had to follow the recipe and measure the exact quantities carefully on the scales.

Together we came up with a set of rules to follow to help us interpret scales

1. look at the scale

2. estimate what we think the scale is going up in

3. Try it and see if we are right

4. adjust if needed and try again

5. annotate on the scale

The cookies smelt and tasted good! And Miss Coade learnt how to use the oven (with the help of Mrs Price!)
