We began the week with a visit to the outfield at Picky to find out how big a hectare was.
|We used the trundle wheel to measure out the 100m sides of the square.|
|We tried to keep the opposite lines parallel.|
|We stood at 25m intervals along the sides of the hectare.|
|It gave us a good idea of how big a hectare is!|
|Using the 1:25 000 OS map which is laid out in a grid of square kilometres.|
Back indoors we used maps to try to understand the size of the hectare compared to a square kilometre.
We continued the week with a bake sale to find out how big our appetites were!
Thanks to all our families for providing for the ever popular fund raising event. The money raised will pay for transport costs for our P7 trips.
We finished the week by displaying our Willow Art...
