Last term we looked at symmetry for Maths. Something is symmetrical when it is the same on both sides. Some things have more than one line of symmetry. We made some patterns using the pattern blocks and we had to write how many lines of symmetry our patterns had. We also looked at symmetry in snowflakes and in flowers. Here are some of our patterns.
Did you know that the Tasman Bridge is fifty years old this year? We read on Wikipedia that a man from Clarence Council said that the Tasman Bridge has only another twenty years because it got damaged when the Lake Illawarra crashed into it.
