In Year 4 we started our new unit of work in Maths – Area and Perimeter.
We had to work in teams to select our equipment and measure different dimensions around the playground. We used Trundel Wheels, metre sticks and rulers. We discovered that area is in the space inside a shape (rectangles we looked at today) and perimeter is the outside edge of the shape.
We measured in meters and centimetres and tried to find the area and perimeter of the basketball court, football pitch, floor games and the picnic table.
It was fun to be outdoors exploring maths in our play ground.
