The Mystic Rose Challenge!

Y5

On Wednesday 7 December we welcomed the Y5 parents to our Maths & D/T workshop.

We started the afternoon with a ‘Mystic Rose’ challenge. The children and parents had to predict how many lines would be needed to be drawn on a circle with 6 points. They had to work in a systematic way to find that 21 lines were needed.

They then moved on to a harder challenge; this time looking at a circle with 12 points. This time we found that 66 lines were needed.

Once the difficult part was finished, we moved on to making our calendars. Yes, you’ve guessed it! The children were making a ‘Mystic Rose’ calendar using a needle and thread. Children and parents produced fabulous work!
