We compared the properties of 2D and 3D shapes, then worked in table teams to create skeletons of different 3D shapes. We had to focus carefully on the number of edges and shape of the faces to enable us to do this.

This week we have been focusing on geometry: specifically 2D shape. We started by looking at the meanings of the different shape vocabulary that we would need to describe and define shapes, then applied this to the shapes themselves.

Year 6 are learning about ratio and proportion. To learn how to write the ratio and proportion of different objects, we created some of our own ‘sets’ made up of different parts, that we then wrote the corresponding ratios and proportions for.
As part of our learning surrounding ratio, we have been practising the skill of scaling. We applied this to a practical task, as we made scaled models of the furniture in the classroom.

When learning about fractions and their equivalents, we built some equivalence tables in our teams. First we came up with fractions, decimals and percentages on some post it notes, then used our knowledge of how to convert between these values to fill in the gaps.

Year six stared the year by revising their place value skills. To begin, they used place value grids to make and partition numbers, then generated their own, using dice and digit cards. Alongside this, they also had to think about systematic working, when finding all the possible number combinations.

We have been learning about negative numbers in maths. To start off with, we revised the concept of what made a positive and a negative number, and their values, by placing them on a number line in the classroom.

As part of our learning surrounding long division, we had to answer some missing number problems. We had to think really carefully about the method to find the missing digits!
We have been learning about the order of operations in maths, using the acronym: BODMAS to help us. We applied this skill to a maths puzzle, fitting the pieces together based on the answers to different calculations.
