Year 3 Enjoyed Maths Lessons Learning About Perimeter

In Year 3 we have recently been learning about a new concept in Maths - Perimeter. To build our understanding of what we mean by perimeter, we started by using a piece of string and measuring different items we saw around the school. We knew that we were looking for items that fit our string ‘just nicely’ - not too short, not too long. Some of these ‘just right’ items were: pillars, chairs, recycle bins, tiles and railings. Following this initial lesson, we used different tools for measuring - our string, rulers and metre rulers to help us get an accurate perimeter measurement in centimetres of things from inside the classroom. We did this by running the string around the outside of a shape and then measuring the length of the string we used. We enjoyed our hands-on Maths lessons learning about perimeter.
