ANGLES

ANGLES

BY 3/4B

As part of our numeracy we have been learning about right angles, acute angles and obtuse angles.

Right angles are always equal to 90°

Acute angles are less than 90°, less than a right angle.

Obtuse angles are more than 90° and less than 180°.  Bigger than a right angle and less than a straight angle.

As part of our learning we made a cool display showing the different angles, it kinda looks like a whole lot of Pacmen!

THE FIRST FLEET

 

Our integrated topic this term has been the First Fleet.  We have learned all about how many ships were in the First Fleet.  Why people were sent to Australia on the First Fleet and how difficult it was for the people who came to Australia.

IMG_0566

 

We discovered lots of information about the people who were transported to Australia.  We used technology to investigate what the ships in the First Fleet looked like.  We drew them and then made them.
