P6/7 have been investigating the properties of different types of triangles. Once they discovered the relationship between equilateral triangles, hexagons and trapeziums they were prompted to use their knowledge of equilateral triangles to find internal angles in other shapes and to fold shapes to find lines of symmetry. They cut shapes to see that an isosceles triangle is half of a rectangle and then were able to figure out how to find the area of isosceles triangles. Amid this important chat we still found time to paint!
