Using Numicon to help us take away.
Year 5 now have twelve children with a good enough time to get a place on the bus to the beach in July; they’re all under the 6 minute mark to complete the grid. Would you like to practise at home? Download the sheet below.
We continued our measurement unit today by looking at capacity. We figured out that capacity can be measured in ml and l. After our investigation we realised that although a container might look big it actually might not hold the most liquid. We all got stuck in despite the cold and windy weather. Well done Willow for a great investigation!
Willow class have had a brief introduction to measurement this week, where they had to work out how to accurately measure the playground. We had some great investigators working out which would be the best method and the things that would not make our answer accurate.
To start the week off, we learned the angle song along to the YMCA soundtrack. This helped us to remember the different angles we would need to know. We then explored different angles in a shape which was made on the floor. We managed to find lots of right angles, some acute angles and only a couple of obtuse angles.
Children, can you teach your parents the angle song?
In Aspen Class, we have been learning how to plot coordinates and describe directions when translating shapes. This means that a shape is moved without changing the size, shape or rotating it.
We used different resources to explore odd and even numbers. We thought of different rules and patterns to help us identify odd and even numbers.
