Maths in Key Stage 3

There has been some excellent work in mathematics from Years 7 and 8 last week.

Year 7 are currently working on a shape and space topic. (See some of the tessellations we have done below.) It is very interesting to see who has the skills of visualising of how shapes can combine. It isn’t always the pupils that I would expect.

Year 8’s are just finishing a unit on circles. They have practised their circle vocabulary and hopefully know how to find the perimeter (circumference) and area of a circle. (Ask them about C=2πr and A=πr2)
