## 5C – Real World Maths

With the temperature high, today was a great opportunity to use problem solving skills and investigate real world maths by taking the classroom outside. After recapping area and perimeter, 5C were tasked with measuring different parts of the playground – without any measuring equipment!

## 1SJ Bee Bots

We’ve been having a brilliant time learning how to programme bee bots.
On the first day, we were robots and gave each other directions. We used half and quarter turns, left and right, forwards and backwards, and how many steps.
On the second day, we investigated the bee bots. We worked out how to programme them, how far they travel, the maximum number of instructions they can follow and we made them go around objects, and in squares and rectangles.
After that, we used them on bee bot mats and programmed them to go to specific squares.
Finally, we used the mats and wrote the code before programming the bee bots.

## Counting in twos

We love singing this count in twos song.

Today we helped the monkeys sort their bananas.  The monkeys think that bananas in the two times table are delicious and that other bananas are yucky!  We started to notice some patterns in the ones.
