Reasoning.

It was great to hear the children using their reasoning skills in Maths today. We were working on measuring accurately and designing a house.
We needed to include a roof with a maximum height of 3cm. The first one we drew let all the snow in. The next one covered a bit more but the rain and snow got in. On our third attempt we drew diagonal lines of 3cm which meant that our roof was only 2cm high. After lots of careful thinking we decided we had to find the middle of the top line then draw a line 3cm up and complete the triangles. Well done. Great Maths language being used.
