Cheetahs were busy making cubes and cuboids following instructions, well done!
Today P5/6 looked at volume. The children investigated volume using cubes. The children followed instructions to work out the volume of prisms. The cheetahs were able to use the formula lxbxh.
This term we are looking at time. We looked at 12 hour, 24 hour, am and pm. We also looked at calendars, timetables and duration of time.
Tigers, Leopards and Pumas continued with their investigation of 3D shapes. They looked at the nets of various 3D shapes and had to match the net to the shape. The children were also able ot list the properties of the 3D shapes.
Cheetahs were invetigating 2D shapes - rhombus and parallelograms. The children were looking at the properties of the shapes - sides, corners and naming the angles.
Today the Tigers. Leopards and Pumas were set the task of following instructions to make a cube. First they followed the instructions to make the net and then folded it up into a cube! Well done everyone!
P6 are working on hard on numbers to 1 decimal place. This week we were dividing decimals.
We were set the task of using certain single digit numbers, to make HTU numbers adding up to 900. This was a very challenging task and all children worked well together! Well done to the group who completed the task!!
What fun we all had using Tangrams, even Mrs Jenkins was having fun making squares! We were able to manipulate differerent shapes like squares, triangles and parrallograms!
During our topic of Perimeter and Area we used the boards to investiage the perimeter and area of shapes. We were able to use the same perimeters and areas to make different shapes.
Today Izak 9 was back in our classroom. The children worked in their teams to arrange all the single digit numbers in alphabetical order, placing the first number on the top left hand corner. There was a lot of discussion and logical thinking as to how to work out the problem!!
Today we were introduced to Izak9! We had great fun working with the 27 piece cube, looking for multiples of 3! We also found out how to find the Product of numbers. We had a lot of fun putting Izak9 back together with 2D shapes on each face of the cube! Team work all the way for P5/6!!!
We have been busy this year looking at numbers up to 10,000 (P6) and numbers up to 9,999 (P5). We also enjoy using the interactive to quickly find the answers.
Every Thursday is our Problem solving day. Mrs Jenkins sets us Problem Solving Activities to complete and then share with the class our findings. It is good fun and we get the opportunity Think/Pair/Share with our peers
