Designing a bedroom for Harry Potter

This week in some of our Maths lessons, the children were exploring using scale to create models.  First, we looked at the scale model of Hogwarts castle on the internetWe then discussed the fact that every dimension is 1/24 of what would be real-life size. Then, the children made a scale model working out the  dimensions for each piece of furniture. Their imaginary room was 4.6m by 4.2m, and the scale model was  1/10 of this.  The children then had to draw nets of the 3D shapes and put them together.  Some people found this easier than others!
