‘Space’ maths investigations

Another great day today. The children continued to tackle their maths investigations based around our class topic ‘Space’. Today they were asked to build a bridge, which would take the weight of a space rocket. The bridge was needed to transport the rocket across the rings of Saturn (just go with me here everyone). About half the bridges worked and we had a really constructive discussion as to why some where more successful than others.

In the afternoon children created self portraits using a variety of materials. The whole school did this. The plates will be used to build a large number line later in the week.

  1. I love your activity on building a bridge to support the space rocket.
    A fun idea that uses lots of maths and really makes you work your brains.
    Well done Yr4
