Drawing a Circle. Active maths.


Accurate measuring required!Success - the begining of the fire pit circle


Drawing a Circle. Active maths.

This is a fairly classic exercise, but non the worse for it! These children worked diligently, taking turns with the tape, pegs and measure to complete the task. They were so engaged with the process that we left them to it, after helping them get the method established and we came back to an (almost) perfect circle.
Later the children practised carrying heavy objects safely as we set some logs along the perimeter of the circle, and then we had a celebratory fire with healthy apple roasting. Much fun was had by all, despite persistent rain! The resulting fire pit  and sitting circle has been used in many ways during breaks and workshops, and is now a key feature in their new outdoor learning area.
