    My big brother is tall and I am short.
    There is a difference because my brother ran faster as he got older.

  4. Maths challenge


    1) capacity is how much liquid can be stored in a container.
    2) I have found different containers that can store liquid. Each can store different amount. I have listed them below.

    Jug – 750 ml
    Cup – 75 ml
    Lunch box – 500 ml
    Water bottle – 2 litres
    Can of pop – 250 ml
    Tomato ketchup – 800 ml
    Beans tin – 400 grams
    Custard tin – 410 grams

    3) the bottle of water holds the most liquid than the cup. This is because the waterbottle is big and large. While the cup is small and narrow.

    4) here is an example taken from what I found at home. Waterbottle holds 2 litres, while the can of pop is 250 ml. This shows which is large and which is small.
