Learning for the Head, Heart and Hand
This is a summary of what we have learnt in the first three weeks of this term.
We learnt that an obtuse angle is more than 180 degrees and less than 360.
The angles in a circle add up to 360.
We learnt why angles in a triangle add up to 180 degrees.
Acute angles are less than 90 degrees.
Then four angles we need to remember are Right angle - 90, Obtuse angle between 90 and 180, Reflex - more 180 but less than 360 and acute - less than 90.
