Y4 have been investigating triangles and quadrilaterals in their maths lessons recently. We were learning about the different types of triangles and their properties and made them in various ways. We used straws, sticks, geoboards and even completed some art work based on Sierpinski Gasket. We drew upside down equilateral triangles repeatedly to make a design. The finished designs were put together to make one huge picture.
While investigating quadrilaterals, we looked at angles and talked about how to recognise acute, obtuse and right angles. We had a go at identifying different shapes and recording their properties to help us describe them.
