Granny’s Rug

This week in Maths, we have been investigating length, area and perimeter. This is the task we had:

“Granny has bought a new rug for her hallwaythat measures 1m x 1m. Unfortunately, she gets it home and finds it is too wide for her hallway!” Make Granny’s rug and calculate the area and perimeter of it. Resize Granny’s rug so it has the same area but will fit into her hallway (it has to be less than 1 metre wide!) Calculate the area and perimeter of her new rug. What do you notice? Record sketches and measurements of your rugs and write some statements about what you have discovered about area and perimeter.

Here are our efforts!

 

 

 

Gallery Viewing Term 1

The 5/6 M and M Gallery Viewing Team did a wonderful job sharing all our Term 1 learning with our school community. It was great to have our blog to showcase some of the great work we have done during the term and the ‘Harlem Shuffle‘ was a BIG hit with all the visitors to our room. We also enjoyed going around to some of the other classes and seeing what they have been learning about. Here are some photos of our team in action – well done team!
