Pentominoes

During maths this week, we have looked at the area of objects and how we can measure how large things are. We were using pentominoes to do this. Pentominoes are shapes that are made from 5 squares, that are placed together. We each made our own pentominoe from place value blocks. We were amazed at all of the different ways you can put 5 squares together. We then measured the area of each pentominoe and found that they were all 5 cm2. Next week we will be making our own set of pentominoes.
