This Blog is a diary of all the things we get up to in our very busy classroom. It is an opportunity for family and friends to be completely involved in the learning that we do every day and it is a great place for us to add learning links that can be useful at home. We hope you enjoy our site, feel free to become a follower and visit us regularly as we update at least twice a week. We also welcome your comments.
Today for Maths we made 3D models out of wine gums and toothpicks. It was an easy way for us to count the number of faces, corners and edges that each shape had. There were a couple of shapes that we could not make with the wine gums and toothpicks. These were a cylinder and a sphere. We discovered that the reason we couldn't make them was that they had no corners and they did not have straight edges.
Chaleece, Alex ane Regen concentrate on making their 3D shapes

What a fun Maths lesson! Undoubtedly the best part of this lesson was devouring the lollies when we had finished. Don't worry though Mums and Dads, as we did learn alot from this activity!
