Autumn 2 Week 5
Our maths has moved on to area this week. Once we had confidently understood hour to calculate the area of a rectangle, we moved on to composite rectilinear shapes. Having grasped that, the children were given an investigation to work on.
Our Working Out
To find solutions to this problem, the children had to use their ability to add and subtract several small numbers mentally and their knowledge of multiples and factors. Have a look at their working out to see the children’s strategies.
