We were using vocab such as long, longer, tall, taller, longest and tallest today to compare lengths and heights of objects. We enjoyed exploring the classroom.
We made different paths whilst counting in different multiples. We were counting in 2s, 5s and 10s. We then jumped on the paths at different starting numbers.
Today, we have been learning outside in maths and have been angle detectives. First, we made different angles using our bodies, then we took photos of acute, obtuse and right angles in our environment. After that, we used sticks and twigs to make our own shapes and pictures and labelled each…
After a full morning of SATs, Year 6 ventured into the woods this afternoon for some fresh air, exercise and maths! We worked with a partner, following and solving a trail of maths problems around the woods.
We used lots of resources to make some 2 digit numbers. We used the vocab tens and ones and understood the value of numbers.
On Monday afternoon, Year 6 enjoyed a bit of light relief after their first SAT. We went outside to do a maths treasure hunt - solving a variety of problems, then using the answers to locate the next challenge. We got some fresh air and exercise, at the same time as revising some mathematical…
As part of our topic about growing, we have learnt a new nursery rhyme. We looked at some real cockle shells and laid our flowers and shells in a row like Mary did. We found out that pretty maids and silver bells are flowers. Later on this term we will be planting our own seeds and watering them.
Today we started our new maths topic (Decimals, Fractions and Percentages) by making jewellery. We each cut up a whole straw (worth one) into ten equal pieces (worth a tenth) and made this into a tenths necklace. Then we took a tenth piece of straw and cut this up into ten equal pieces (worth a…
We also looked carefully at the 3D shapes and drew around each face. This helped us to see the shapes of the different faces.
We also used the polydron shapes to make our own 3D shapes. This helped us to really think about the shape of the different faces on the shapes.
We are learning about 3D shapes in maths. Here we are making some using cocktail sticks and marshmallows. This helped us to think about how many vertices in each shape.
We made 2 digit numbers using a range of resources and compared them using greater than and less than.
