Triangles are my favourite shape

We’ve been investigating the properties of triangles this morning, cutting pieces of string to form equilateral, isosceles, right angle and scalene triangles. We found that making the shapes from string made us more aware of their properties. For example, to make an isosceles triangle out of an equilateral, you only need to make one snip! 

We’ll be putting our knowledge of shapes to the test in the next few lessons with some problem solving…
