Which of the Junior School football pitches is the largest?

Our Year 5 pupils recently took part in a fun mathematical exercise to determine which football pitch in the Junior School is the largest. Armed with trundle wheels and a keen interest in mathematics, our young mathematicians set out to measure and calculate the area and perimeter of each pitch.

Using their newly acquired skills in measuring distance, our pupils meticulously rolled their trundle wheels along the boundaries of each pitch, recording the distances covered. With precision and accuracy, they then applied their knowledge to calculate the area and perimeter of each pitch.

Through this hands-on math exercise, our Year 5 pupils not only honed their mathematical skills but also gained a deeper understanding of real-world applications of geometry and measurement. They learned to collaborate, problem-solve, and think critically as they tackled the task in small groups.
