Week 10: Visual problems- carpet laying?

Mr Booth wants to know which Reception class carpet is the longest, Spilsby's or Gipsey Bridge's! So we need to measure it! But what are we going to use? We tried lots of resources and different ways.

"We can use a ruler or a long measuring stick!"


"We can use a measuring tape!"


"We could use some string because then you can just lay it out, it's easier and quicker!"



"We need to make sure that we start at the very start of the carpet and finish at the very end."


"We need to make sure that the blocks are touching each other then count how many long the carpet is."
