This afternoon, we learned about symmetry. We learned that symmetrical objects are objects that, when you draw a line down the middle of them (either across, down or at an angle), both sides of the line will be identical. It also means that if you could fold the object along this line, each side would fit perfectly onto the other.

Making symmetrical patterns on our desks
We combined Maths and Art and created some symmetrical patterns on grid paper. We needed to think carefully about how we coloured in each box and make sure we found the right box on the other side to make it symmetrical. Some of us found it very tricky, but we all managed to work it out in the end.

Here are some pictures of us busy creating our symmetrical masterpieces.

Our random Daily Writing topic today was writing instructions for making toast. What an appropriate thing to be writing about first thing in the morning!

1. I get the bread from the cupboard.
