We have had some super learning in Maths today. The children enjoyed investigating lines of symmetry in 2d shapes today. Just look at the wonderful work below. The children enjoyed folding the shapes to work if it had vertical, horizontal or diagonal lines of symmetry. Some children identified a pattern, they noticed that the regular 2d shapes lines of symmetry match with the number of sides it has.
