Preparation for our trip towards Breaker Bay

We have been working on measuring things in maths. Tomorrow we hope to get down towards Breaker Bay and be part of the Marine Metre Squared project as part of which we will examine carefully what is living in a square metre of our coastline.

This week we have been learning about identifying and classifying the types of flora and fauna we found on our trip to Worser Bay rock pools last week. Today we problem solved in groups how we could use string and rulers to work out how big a metre squared really is and come up with some ways of helping us recreate it on the beach tomorrow.

We had to measure four lots of one metre accurately with a ruler then identify each metre on our piece of string. We hope the weather will hold up and we'll be able to explore our coastline tomorrow!
