May 19, 2016: Impossible maths
Can a square be a circle? Can a straight line be curved? Those were two questions that class7 investigated in maths today. At the end of the lesson we all agreed that the answer to the two questions asked earlier was YES! (and we also used this website to discover how to make a circle square)

May 18, 2016: Names in blocks
Today's maths in class7 was based around writing names using squared paper. Once the pupils had written out their name, they counted how many squares they had used, and then we turned their 2D names into 3D names using MineCraftEDU. Each child was given just enough blocks to make their name. How would they get on...

Today in class 7's math lesson we used compass directions to make chalk marks on the playground. We had no idea what shapes the instructions would make until we had finished, but we discovered that we were chalking out capital letters. It was great fun in the sun.

May 16, 2016: Creative Maths in Class7
This morning in maths cl7 were set a challenge involving trying to work out how many 1m2 carpet tiles would be needed to cover the floor in the new hall. After a bit of thinking about how we might work this out, we headed to the hall and began to discover just how big the hall floor was... At the end of the lesson (and after a lot of measuring) we worked out that we would need 140 1m2 carpet tiles to cover the floor.
