Maths is always fun especially when you are able to apply it to real life activities in the sunshine. As we were learning about area and perimeter it was a great opportunity to apply our skills and find out the measurements of things around our school. We investigated the size of a car park space to find out how much paint would be needed to repaint them. We also discovered the area of a garden beds to work our plantings needed for new gardens.
It was a great way to use our maths and check our understanding of area and perimeters around us.
