P6 Outdoor Measurement Challenge

Over the last few weeks, we have been practising our measuring skills and learning how to calculate the perimeter and area of squares, rectangles and composite shapes.

As an extra challenge, we took our learning outdoors and tried out our new skills on a bigger scale. Working in small groups, we had to create giant shapes with chalk, then measure and record the length of each side using trundle wheels and metre sticks. Back in the classroom, we then had to work out the perimeter and area of each of our shapes.

  

  

Each group demonstrated fantastic teamwork and problem solvingskills which ensured that everyone was able to participate equally and complete the task successfully!
