Problem solving

Room 27 has been doing some problem solving this week for Maths.

We were given a problem about hanging up washing. Miss Ladley needed to hang up 4 towels. She used 2 pegs per towel. We had to figure out how many there were all together. Some of us were extra clever and used skip counting in 2s.

The problem then got harder as Miss Ladley ran out of pegs to hang up her towels. We had to use 1 peg to join two together and find our how many she would need!

We worked together as a team!

And were all so happy when we figured it out!!
