Finding area of net boxes

Today we ripped some boxes apart to lay them flat and find their areas. We then compared our findings. Our tool for finding the areas were cards which also allowed us to experiment turning them sideways to make more fit.

Length and area champions!


Over the past couple of weeks we have measured the length and area of a variety of items including our hands and feet. The children have really enjoyed these activities and can be heard talking to each other using the language of measurement when discussing their findings.

Measuring + PE!!

Today we combined PE with Maths and measured how many big steps to the tennis ball that we threw or the hoop that we rolled. It was so wonderful seeing them enjoy this hands-on maths lesson!
