Well done the 17 children of Chestnut class that used their right angle monsters at home and found lots of right angles. You all have 10 inspire points! 👍

Today we blasted our way into our new topic Under our Feet by going on an imaginary journey into a large hole in the ground.
We worked in groups and as a team made a large model of the layers of the earth using play dough.

This week we have been looking at Properties of 2D shapes.
First we used a mirror to find lines of symmetry in shapes.
Then we learnt that a right angle is a quarter turn and that 2 right angles make a half turn. Some of us even knew that a right angle is 90°!
We made right angle monsters and went for a hunt for right angles around the classroom. After that we looked to see which shapes have right angles or if the angle was greater or less than a right angle.
These were practical lessons to build on our inspire focuses.
