Today we have been thinking about the perimeter of pentagons and hexagons. We were set a challenge to create a regular hexagon and a regular pentagon from a 30cm strip of paper. We used our knowledge of regular shapes: all sides equal in length, then divided our strip of paper into equal lengths to create the sides. Our pentagon had five sides of 6cm each; our hexagon had six sides of 5cm each.
