Watch the video below and then try our Maths activity today.

Activity- We are going to be looking at the measurement length and using the vocabulary short, long, shorter, longer, shortest, longest.


You have some ‘strips of ribbon’ in the document below to wrap our wedding presents up with. Cut out the ‘strips of ribbon’ (or ask a grown up to help you).  You could get your grown up to cut up some different lengths of paper to represent your ribbon (you could even decorate your ‘strips of ribbon’) or you could use real strips of ribbon if you have some up home.


Can you order them from shortest to longest?


Challenge- Answer these questions

1. Which ribbon is the longest?

2. Which ribbon is the shortest?

3. Choose 2 ribbon, which ribbon is longer?

4. Choose 2 ribbons, which ribbon is shorter?
