After estimating and accurately weighed items that were 1kg, the children were invited to select objects from within the classroom that they thought weighed approximately […]Read more "We used Pic collage in Maths"
After being inspired by @ThisIsLiamM, an ambitious first session was planned for Class 5. Creating word clouds on Tagxedo, to aid the personification poetry, the class realised they lacked some quality words.
