Maths Support Week 4 Autumn 1

Next week, the children will be focusing on geometry. They will be looking at measuring angles in degrees, estimating and comparing acute, obtuse and reflex angles. The children will also recap that angles on a straight line and a half turn add up to 180 degrees. Angles at a point and one whole turn add up to 360 degrees and that there are 90 degrees in a right angle.

Types of angles

a) An angle less than 90° is acute.

b) An angle between 90° and 180° is obtuse.

c) An angle greater than 180° is reflex.
