# Teachers TV: Primary Maths - Measures

Created by

Great Lesson Ideas on measures in primary maths - children have to estimate the volume of puddles, make muffins and concoct magic potions!

At Cuffley School, Year 2 estimate the volume of water contained in a variety of different sized bottles. At The Wroxham School, Year 4 are making muffins, using scales to accurately follow the recipe. Whose muffins will be judged best, and why?

Back at Cuffley School, Year 3's teacher has turned herself into a witch! Her class measure different volumes of coloured potions accurately to make up a litre of their very own magic potion.

Thankyou so much for the video in particular! I adapted the witch's potion idea for a year 5 lesson on calculating fractions of numbers. I gave the children potion sheets with 5 fractions on. They had to work out the fractions of 500ml and then make the potion.
