This week we in Room 2 we are doing lots of Pirate based activities for Book Week and the Book Fair! Today we started with Maths Like a Pirate.
Students had to make a treasure chest with only paper and 1m of cellotape. The treasure chest had to fit their pencils in. We discussed where is the Maths in this activity before we started and we brainstormed the following- Measurement, Geometry, Shape, 3D Shapes, Area, Volume.
We also looked at what skills we need to use when working with our buddy. We focused in on the value of relationships and the skills of communication and co-operation.
Here are some photos of our work.
