Today in maths we have been using the language of estimation. We talk about an estimate being a sensible guess. We started by estimating how many children we could fit into the big rectangle and then tried it with hula hoops. I have to say, children were really able to grasp the idea. We managed to fit nine children in a big red hula hoop, and seven in a smaller blue hula hoop.    
Then during free flow we tried it out with some objects around the classroom and found that our guesses were really very accurate! Great work guys!
