Coral class have been investigating fractions. We have looked at equivalent fractions, adding, subtracting and multiplying fractions.

In Maths Coral class have been continuing to use protractors to sharpen their angle measuring skills. We have been learning about angles on a straight line and angles in a triangle.
Measuring angles with protractors.
Today, we measured angles using protractors for the first time.
We understand angles really well, and we can identify an acute, obtuse, reflex or right angle. Now we are learning to measure them accurately.
It would be great if we could practise this skill at home, as well as in school.
Protractors are usually found in maths kits, so maybe an older sibling has one, or you could purchase one for around 30p.
Please print out the sheet below, or ask your class teacher to give one to you, and practise measuring angles with your child.
In maths today, we had a fabulous time learning about acute, obtuse, reflex and right angles. We identified and created a number of different shapes with a variety of different types of angles.
Angles in the real world.
We made angle finders, and looked for actuate, obtuse, reflex and right angles. Ask us what these are.
We found different angles in our learning environment. Some thought we could identify angles on our faces!
We then made different shapes and identified the angles.
Can you name the angles we found?
