# Fir class maths measuring lesson

In Maths Fir were estimating and then measuring objects around the classroom.

# Rowan class maths learning – a great fact about angles in a triangle

Did you know why angles in a triangle total 180°? Today we learnt the reason: If you put all the angles of a triangle together with their vertices at the centre point, they make a straight line. We know that all angles on a straight line equal 180° so the angles in a triangle equal 180°.

# Rowan – Enterprise week

We have been busy getting ready for Enterprise week. So far, we have been pricing and buying goods for the stall and understanding what budgets are all about. Today, we went to Sainsbury’s and bought the final goods for our stalls. Additionally, we asked around at local shops for donations as we went over budget. Finally, we have been creating posters and the actual stalls. Photos to follow…

# Representing amounts

This afternoon in Pips we counted some of the conkers we found and then made marks on our boards to show how many we each had.

# Rowan – Solving a puzzle of equivalent fractions

While some of us revised finding simplifying and finding common denominators, others of us worked on solving a puzzle of equivalent fractions. Well done to the one mathematician who solved the whole puzzle.

# Fir class exploring fractions

We looked at different representations of fractions.

# Rowan created various representations of division

We used bead strings, peg boards and writing Dienes blocks (lines and dots) to represent groups of 10 and 1’s.
