Water and Water Safety


This week in Maths we shall be looking at Capacity.  In EYFS vocabulary such has full, half full and empty are used to describe the amount of liquid a container can hold.  In this term understanding of capacity is developed further, regarding comparison of capacity between containers.

In Year 1 the measurement of volume is introduced, as in millilitres and litres.  This is included in this tutorial, should you at some point wish to explore it with your child, when they have shown a good understanding of capacity using non-standard measures.

Have lots of fun exploring capacity and remember, the tallest container does not always have the greatest capacity, or does it?

Find out for yourself.


All videos of children exploring capacity and using the Mathematical vocabulary of capacity, will be awarded a Capacity Champ Certificate.
