my immediate thought goes to the 3 bears....size/length/weigh/ etc ????

I often point out (in real life or surprising contexts) how something is both longer and thinner / shorter and thicker or bigger and lighter / smaller and heavier etc, and that something that is tall can be long.

We have opaque water bottles which we sometimes use to compare amount of water and weight, to use language as 'more, less, the most, the least' and 'lighter than', 'as heavy as' etc.

Just realised that lesson planning for a Reception class is very different from providing spontaneous learning opportunities to a a few Reception-aged children and older nursery children in a preschool...

I'd define exactly what measures you are looking at first!!
