Our buddy class maths investigation

Today we taught our buddy class how to use our knowledge of area to design a swimming pool using blocks. This was the same investigation we did last week but were teaching our older buddies how to do it!

Measuring Area

Today we tried to make a plan for a swimming pool using cubes to model it. We thought about all the different ways we could make a swimming pool with an area of 12 cubes. Harry was the winner with 7 different designs!

Our maths investigation

We have been learning about length and area. We had a competition to see who could make the tallest sandcastle. We then measured it using blocks to test whose was the biggest. The winners made a sandcastle 29 blocks tall!
