We were studying length in Maths. Our teacher set up some problems for us to solve. We took measurements of the yard and worked on puzzles in the hall. We used trundle wheels and metre sticks. We recorded our measurements to work out area and perimeter of different areas in the school grounds.

Math Week , 3rd class, Ms Gibson

During Maths Week, we enjoyed making 3D shapes using cocktail sticks and marshmallows. It was quite tricky to keep them stable so we added extra cocktail sticks for strength.

We also enjoy exploring different maths problems in our groups, using the IZAK9 cubes.

We like working in pairs and groups when exploring different topics such problem solving with money and measuring different things in our classroom.
