Year 5 have started their new maths topic – properties of shapes.
To allow children to put angles and turns into practice, we took ourselves outside (in the lovely, warm sun) to demonstrate our knowledge and understanding of this. In small groups, they looked at certain points outside, for example the church, and they turned themselves either quart, half, three quarters or a full turn to see what else they could see in the school grounds.
Our mathematicians worked brilliantly as a team, helping each other along the way.
