Year 5 Maths

Yesterday in Maths we investigated whether or not it was true that the smarties in a tube only actually took up half of the tube. We worked in groups to decide how we could approach the problem and the range of different ideas were great! Some groups measured the tube and chocolates whilst others crushed smarties and one group even decided to cut up the tube and stick it back together as a cuboid to see whether this helped. This was a great introduction to our next few lessons on Volume.
