Year 4 have been carrying out a number of different activities as part of our celebration of Maths Week. Some of the pupils have been looking at the angles that we can see in shapes. These were researched online, with the pupils learning how to identify a right angle, an obtuse angle and an acute angle.
This work developed to learn about what happens to the size of angles in a shape if we add in extra sides. Some of the pupils have created posters to explain their Maths Week work.
All class members have also been working on tessellations patterns. This refers to a flat surface that uses a repeating tile pattern to create a design that has no overlaps or gaps. The children designed their own template as the starting point, and then used this to create a colourful tessellation pattern.
A final Maths Week activity in year 4 has involved the study of various facts and statistics for a World Village. The pupils have been researching various facts about the world economy, population and resources. We have then used this data to mathematically represent our findings. A class display is proudly on show for other pupils around the school to learn from.
