Hi everyone and welcome back to Term 4!
This week we have explored different shapes in maths. Today we discovered different shapes in our classroom and outside in our school. We wrote down all the different shapes we found, some were rectangles, squares, circles, ovals and triangles.
Here are some photos we took today, see if you can find the shapes.


I wonder what shapes you can find in your home or in your backyard? How many can you find and name?

Hi everyone,

This week in maths we have been exploring what capacity is. We have been using containers and using different items to see how much the container can hold. We have used lots of different materials in maths and have been using words such as litres (L), mililitres (ml) and cups.

Hi everyone,
I hope you all enjoyed your first day back at school! Today we created our own pictograph of our favourite fruits. We discussed how to make statements about the data we collected, and we noticed that 11 people in our class like apples as their favourite fruit.
What are some other statements that you can share about our data?

Hi everyone,

In maths we have been looking at different patterns and how patterns work. We created some of our own patterns with tools we could find in the classroom. Here are some of the ones we created:

Patterns can be found everywhere! See if you can find some patterns around home, outside, or anywhere else you might go during the week. It would be great to see where you find patterns so please share a comment!
