Maths in Action

Ms Melanie Crase —

4B use geometry and measurement skills to create a life-size t-rex!

Last week, 4B combined geometry and measurement skills to create a life sized Tyrannosaurus Rex. In Mathematics lessons, students learnt how to use grid references to read and draw maps. They then had the opportunity to apply their knowledge by using grid references to enlarge a picture of a t-rex to its actual size - 6 metres high and 12 metres long!
