This terms focus in addition to Number work is on Geometry and Measurement. This strand is so important for us as we build and create our edible gardens using 2 and 3D shapes. We need to learn the relationship of shapes to one another, measure accurately and explain our ideas clearly and precisely to other members of the school community.
Last week we began to explore shape and their relationships by designing poppies for ANZAC day. We learnt that a slide is called translation, a turn us called rotation and we discussed the features of a symmetrical shape.
