This week our Primary Three mathematicians have enjoyed exploring their new maths topic of Measure.
We began our week by concentrating on length, height and width – which we learned can be measured in units of millimetres, centimetres and metres. We had a lot of fun making the most of the sunny weather, and using instruments like metre sticks and tape measures to complete a range of challenges. We then moved on to weight and learned about grams and kilograms, which we used to complete some weighing challenges in the classroom.
In topic, we completed our ancient Egyptian death masks which we know were placed over the faces of mummified pharaohs. We used metallic paint and glitter and represent the gold and jewels that would have been used in ancient Egypt. We think you will agree that they are very effective!
We also wrote some exciting newspaper reports based on last months real life discovery of 8 mummies in the Valley of Kings, as well as starting work on a special task with the pasta that was kindly donated by our families.
We hope to show you what we did with it next week!
