All systems checked and ready to go and Tangram Teaser

This resource contains two maths activities. The first gives pupils the opportunity to make and fly paper planes, measure distance travelled accurately and mathematically record data. This maths activity gives pupils the chance to learn more about how the wing span and fuselage length can affect the distance a plane can travel. The second activity introduces the topic of tangrams and challenges pupils to make aircrafts using tangram shapes along with many other tangram tasks. These activities are very practical and options for addition challenge for greater depth pupils are included. This resource is part of a series of STEAM activities produced by Rolls Royce and provides opportunities within Year 3 maths curriculum.
