Today we are going to be estimating and counting.
An estimate means to make a sensible guess.
Take a look below.
What would be a sensible estimate for this jar of pennies?
We will look at examples together, make estimates and discuss the best way to count our objects to check if our estimates are sensible.
Your mission today is to look around your home for items to estimate. You may choose to estimate how many lego bricks are in the box or how many smarties there are in the tube? You could estimate how many pieces of pasta are in the maths box that you made at the start of term. It is up to you what you choose. Record your findings in the box below.
