Ms.Dillon’s 2nd Class

2nd Class had lots of fun this week for Maths Week!

As they were learning all about 2D shapes, they created some shape monsters, worked on Tangrams, found some 2D shapes at home, in the classroom and in magazines and they also took part in an online quiz where they had to work together and use their problem solving skills to answer the tricky questions! They had so much fun!
