## Junior Forms Maths Investigation Morning

**Friday 13 ^{th} November was Maths Investigation Morning in the Junior Forms!**

This year the children were split into groups of three with a Year 3, 4 and 5 pupil in each group to encourage them to co-operate and work together.The children’s mathematical brains were then challenged with a variety of different activities created by the Junior Forms’ teachers.

In Mr Feldman’s classroom there was a problem solving activity linked to measuring. Each team were given a strip of paper which measured 42cm in length. Mr Feldman then cut the paper into two and the children had to try and devise a method to work out the length of each piece of paper…without using a ruler! Some used their fingers to estimate, some folded the paper into smaller sections to count accurately and others tried to work out how much longer one piece of paper was than the other. Congratulations to Alex D, Harriet M and Imogen N who managed to work out the two lengths to the exact millimetre!

With the help of some top set maths students from Kinder, the morning passed by in a flash!
