World Book Day 2018!

The children in year 5 completed an exciting maths investigation on World Book Day! Their task was to create a scale model of the solar system in the hall (linking with our Space topic in science). However, the children only had toilet roll to measure with- no rulers, tape measures or metre sticks!  1 piece of toilet roll was equal to 10 million km! The children worked together in small groups to measure the distance of each planet from the Sun. Prizes were given to the team who showed the best effort, accuracy and most importantly- teamwork!
