6th Class Maths – Length

on April 3, 2019

This March Mr.Kennedy’s 6th class were studying length in maths. We went out to our school field in groups of threes and fours and measured it. We split the field into sides and named each side A, B, C, D etc. We  estimated and measured all of the 7 sides. After we measured we came back inside and added up our measurements.

The next day we started a scaled map of the field. In order to do this we divided the measurements by 1000 which was a scale(cm) of 1:1000 to fit on A3 paper. Then we did a scale of 1:500 and then 1:200. We really enjoyed studying length.
