Y3 Sapphire: Iron Man wants to Join Us!

A maths investigation in class!

Today in maths, we have been investigating how we could fit The Iron Man into Sapphire as he wanted to join the school. We found out that The Iron Man was ten times bigger than us so we could measure objects in the classroom and then times them by 10. 

We found out that a pencil was 11 cm so a pencil for the Iron Man would need to be 110 cm. If he wanted to sit in the reading corner on a pillow the pillow would need to be 330 cm. If the Iron Man wanted to use a Maths book his maths book would need to be 300 cm.

Sapphire class decided that if he wanted to join the class he would need to sit outside the window and look through it.
