You may have heard people talking about measurements in ‘feet’. Perhaps the height of a person, the size of a room or the length of a bed! But why feet? And how long is a foot?
We will be looking at how we measure things.
Can you predict how long something is before measuring it? What units of measurement do we use? When and how did the earliest measurements begin?
You will make your own foot ruler and use it to measure things around you and compare your measurements to others.
Our free creative maths drop-in sessions are aimed at children aged 4 to 12 and their grown-ups. Every session is different – colour, create and enjoy a challenge! Each month has a unique theme such as patterns, shapes, measuring, logical thinking – all using maths, always lots of fun.
This is a family activity for children and their parents/carers to participate in together. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
This is a face-to-face drop-in event. For details of our online sessions, see our Events listings page.
