When you finish the activity you can close the tab/window to return here.

Counting Beetles

This is a fun little counting activity. You have to keep a close eye on the beetles though.

Counting Beetles

This activity will open in a new tab/window. When you're finished close the tab/window to return to this page.

Lines of symmetry

You've already done an activity like this last week. This time there are three activities for you to try.

Finding one line of symmetry - garden

Finding two lines of symmetry - garden

Finding two lines of symmetry - city

All these will open in a new tab/window. When you've finished close the tab/window to return here.

Rotation of .... buildings?

In this activity you need to recreate the view that you can see from a bird's eye point of view. This activity gets harder as you go along.

When you've finished close the tab/window and come back to this page.

Building Site

Geometric shapes

I know this is an activity you all like.

Create geometric shapes with the blocks and photograph. How complicated can you make your design?

Addition Snap

In order to win this game you need to correctly answer the addition question formed by your two cards. The person who answers first (and correctly) gets both cards. If neither of you get the answer correct the cards stay in the middle until the next correct answer.

Get the cards from the green bucket.

Tower Blaster

This is the activity we previewed (and a couple of groups played) on the IWB on Monday. Click on the link to go there. It should open in a new tab or window. When you're finished close the tab or window to get back here.

Task 4 Symmetry Week 7 Term 2

Click on the link to go to your task today - ask Ms F to set the password for you.

Finding Symmetry

You should really enjoy the activity. Once you've finished come back to this page and add a comment on how you enjoyed it, what was hard/what was easy and your group name.

Task 3 Polygons Week 7 Term 2

Most of you have now seen the Polygon playground.

For this task I want you to use the Polygon playground to create a design that you then recreate using actual blocks from our block container.

On Wednesday we couldn't actually get the web site working - well done to Group 1 who were so professional about it.

Since this is a problem we will skip viewing the website and go directly to creating geometric designs with the blocks. Don't forget to take a photo which we'll post later on.

How complicated can you get? Take a photo of your finished design.

Task 2 Basic Facts Week 7 Term 2

Addition Battle

Collect some cards from Ms F and the container of Beans.

In your maths books draw up the following grid:

1. Everyone draws a card from the deck to decide the first Turn Captain. The person with the highest card wins. (Next round the person on the left will Turn Captain.)

2. Shuffle cards and stack face down in center.

3. Everyone draws the grid in their books to set up the addition problem.

4. Turn Captain flips over top card. Everyone writes it in a blank. The number can’t be moved after it is written.

5. Turn Captain turns over 5 more cards, waiting each time for everyone to write them on a line.

6. The three numbers you put in the top 3 boxes become ONE 3-digit number and the three numbers you put in the bottom 3 boxes become another 3-digit number.

7. Add the two 3-digit numbers together.

8. The person with the highest total gets a bean.

Play at least 5 rounds to see if you get an overall winner. Post the name of your winner in the comment box.

Geometry Task 1 Week 7 Term 2

We've been learning about the both the characteristics and the names of 2D and 3D shapes. In your group brainstorm all the words we've used to describe these shapes (names of the 2D and 3D shapes). You should be able to get at least 10 different shape names.

Click on the comment box and write your group words into the box. Make sure you put your group name in as well so I know whose words they are.
