In maths, the children in year 5 will be looking at area and perimeter for the next couple of weeks. To recap the children’s knowledge, they were challenged to work in groups to find the perimeters of rectangles and rectilinear shapes. Some of the shapes had missing dimensions, so the children had think about how to find these before they could calculate the perimeters. At first, this caused difficulties but they rose to it and were keen to be the group who had correctly found the most perimeters. The children explained their thinking to each other as well as showing excellent team work.
