Quadrilateral Robots

Maths and Art

Creating cross curricular links with art can sometimes be a reach but the area of maths that overlaps with art nicely is shape. Whilst the children were studying the topic of Robots in connection with the class text the Iron Man by Ted Hughes.
I started the session with a maths recap on what is a quadrilateral and how do we identify them. The children then cut different quadrilateral shapes out of coloured paper to create their own robot design by layering their shapes.
Some children extend their learning by adding folded in quadrilateral shapes to create springs.
