National Curriculum: Measurement - Year 2 - Video

  • Teachers TV: Primary Maths – Measures. Lesson Ideas on measures - children have to estimate the volume of puddles, make muffins and concoct magic potions!
  • Bank of England. Part 1: What is money and how does it work? A useful support for teachers in helping children understand the importance and real life application of money.
  • Workplace Mathematics is a series of six NCETM videos showing how mathematics is used in the workplace. This clip focuses on the work of a self-employed builder, and he shares his ‘everyday mathematics’.
  • Piaget - conservation. This video shows young children having a conversation with their teacher about the amount of water in a container, the number of coins in a row and sharing biscuits equally. It clearly shows that young children judge an amount simply from what they see. Conservation, in terms of quantity, is an understanding that needs to be developed through practical experiences in the EYFS. Some children take longer than others to achieve this understanding. It is worth asking your colleagues to bear this in mind when they work on number, length, weight and capacity in KS1.
