This week in Maths we have been exploring symmetry, looking at how shapes are reflected in lines of symmetry. We extended this to reflect shapes and images through 2 lines of symmetry and used this process to create our own colourful symmetrical patterns. We also looked a selection of images and through using a mirror identified where lines of symmetry would fall across shapes to make perfect reflections on either side.

We then looked at which of these facts could be used easily to help us solve and complete the number sentence. We also looked at finding the difference between 2 numbers and worked hard to explain the methods we were using to solve number sentences. Alongside our Big Maths challenge, the class also managed to finish 2 loop card games reciting the 2x and 10x table facts both in under 60 seconds! Next week we will see how much quicker we can complete them. A good start back to the term, well done Maths group. |
