### MEASUREMENT

In Maths we are learning about Volume and Capacity.

Volume is the amount of space taken up by something. The **volume** of solids is expressed in cubic **measurements**, such as cubic centimeter or cubic metre. Here are examples of ways to **measure** solids: Rectangular prism – Multiply the **measurement** of the length times the width, then times the height.

Capacity is the amount a container can hold e.g. a coffee cup, a jug, a drink bottle, a bucket.

Capacity is measured in milliliters (ml) or litres (l) and 1000 ml equals 1 l.

### TYPES OF ANGLES

Having looked at angles towards the mid of Term 2, a great way to recall what we have learnt is through this video. It has a very catch tune and you will have a bit of fun while remembering the types of angles we have studied.

### PROBLEM SOLVING STRATEGIES

**Problem-solving is a mental process that involves discovering and analyzing a potential problem and then coming up with the best possible solution.**

** It is a process and skill you develop over time.**

What are some other strategies that you have used or could use to solve a problem?

### ANZAC SOLDIER- FLIPPED IMAGE

The students were given black paper on which they had to draw their ANZAC soldier using the given stencil. Next, they had to draw their own scenery around the soldier. Thereafter, they had to cut the picture and flip the paper to paste the image they cut out. They had to make sure every bit of paper cut, was used to complete their display, so that both sides looked the same.

A great activity that we integrated with the Inquiry Unit on Anzacs , our Maths (Flipped Image) and Art lesson. Having displayed some of the students work on our classroom window it looked like a tapestry and served as a wonderful display.

Well done class! You have done a fantastic job and should be proud of yourselves. I hope you had fun doing this activity.

### TESSELLATION AND SYMMETRY

**TESSELLATION**

** Tessellation is a pattern using geometric flat shapes that fit perfectly together with no overlaps and gaps.**

**SYMMETRY**

** Symmetry is when one shape becomes exactly like another if you flip, slide or turn it. The simplest type of symmetry is “ Reflection” or ( “Mirror”) Symmetry. Something that is symmetrical has corresponding similar parts: in other words, one side is the same as the other**
