Today's challenge was: If all the children in our school lined up (shoulder to shoulder) how long would our line be in metres? All of the classes worked hard to try and estimate the distance. There were lots of different strategies being used! Room 5 got the exact measurement - 43.5m! They were spot on! Well done Room 5. Room 1 and Room 6 were really close too! They were within 10cm of Room 5. Tomorrow's one is a good one too!

This afternoon we did a co-operative problem solving task. This is part of our inquiry topic this term. We are focusing on competition and co-operation. We had to create a bridge using only newspaper, Sellotape, string and card. We had to make the bridge as long and as strong as possible so that it could hold a 500g weight.
