Perimeter in the playground!

Date: 13th Feb 2017 @ 5:02pm


Today we went out on to the playground for our maths lesson and had a first go at measuring the perimeter of shapes using tape measures. First of all we work in pairs to draw a four sided shape on the ground with chalk. Then we worked out the perimeter by measuring all four sides with our tape measure. Next we swapped shapes and measured a different pair's shape to see whether we got the same answer for the perimeter.

The children all worked very well in their pairs by communicating well, supporting each other and co-operating as a team.
