We used our maths lesson to look at the proportions of the human body. We measured our hand spans, height, arm spans, foot length and compared these to see if there were any patterns.
Year 6 studied imperial and metric measures. In order to apply their knowledge of conversion within this, they measured various objects in and around the classroom, and then changed between units. Then, they worked out the area and volume of the different objects and forms that they had measured.
We have been focusing on the geometry strand of Maths. We started off by revising the names and properties of 2D and 3D shapes, undertaking various sorting exercises to help us group them according to their properties. We then moved this on to construct shapes, and produced scaled drawings of them; relying on our ratio knowledge to help us do this.
Year six have been learning about ratio and proportion. In order to practice this, they found some 'sets' of objects in the classroom, that they had to compare the different parts with each other and with the whole amount.
When learning about fractions, Y6 used their multiplication and division skills to spot and find equivalent fractions. They then used different manipulatives to prove that different fractions were worth the same amount.
Year 6 did some learning around place value. They started by partitioning numbers, deciding what each digit was worth and then moved on to using this knowledge to help them to order and compare whole and decimal numbers.
