Practical Perimeter – 6T Math’s Booster

This morning, as requested by the children, Mr Taylor’s maths group had a practical session measuring the perimeter of the school. In small groups, we each measured a specified length of the school boundary using trundle wheels. For accuracy, we took the measurements more than once then the results were compiled and added together to work out the perimeter. Amazingly, it was 650 meters – approximately!
