This week in maths we have been learning how to find the perimeter of a shape using different units of measure. Today we found out the perimeter of the Wembley pitch by doubling each side and adding together the result. We found out that it is 348m.

We then investigated other real-life perimeters in the classroom.

Year 5 mini-teachers

In maths, this week, Ruby, Rajveer, Carter, Lucas, Renae and Josh, have been helping out other groups in the class with their maths work.

They guided another team and helped them to work out the cube numbers we were learning about. They taught them strategies and easier ways to solve problems.

Well done!

Year 4 Maths

Year 4 have had a busy couple of weeks in Maths learning all about angles and 2D shapes.

The children investigated the properties of 2D shapes and are now able to recognise and describe shapes using mathematical vocabulary such as: parallel lines, perpendicular lines, horizontal, vertical and lines of symmetry. The children used iPads in class to create shapes on the geoboard app. They also went around school investigating which shapes they could find.

We also used our ‘Little Teachers’ in Year 4 to explain how to work out tricky maths problems about shapes to the rest of the class.

Here are some pictures of their work:

Well done Year 4!
