Telling the Time

Today we have been learning to tell the time in 5-minute intervals. We had to match the clock to the correct time. It was a little tricky, but we are definitely starting to get the hang of it!

Calculating volume and capacity

Today we had a super quick maths lesson due to all the exciting events of our week. But Mrs Cozens was so impressed with how easily we were able to understand how to calculate volume of cuboids and cubes. Due to the fact we are so strong at our timestables, we were able to grasp this concept…

Angles

In Maths today, we started to learn about what we measure angles in- degrees. We used ourselves to turn physically turn 90 degrees so we could understand how angles work. We then turned again and realised that half a turn is 180 degrees and so on. After we had learnt this, we went on the…

Sequences

This week in maths we are learning about sequences. We learned that sequences can be numbers or shapes, all we need to know is that they follow a pattern! We had a go at making some simple sequences on our whiteboards for our partners to continue. We then moved on to looking at how we can describe…

Angles everywhere!

In Maths this week we are learning about angles. We used masking tape in our lesson to create a right angle, before creating angles that were smaller and greater than a right angle. To fully understand what a right angle was, we identified different objects around the school that had a right…

Finding quarters of amounts

This week we have been recapping our learning of fractions. Last half term, we learned that to find a quarter of amounts, we have to split them into 4 equal groups. We worked at doing this practically through using things like the bar model and drawing dots or using counters. This half term, we…

Estimating capacity

Today we explored capacity and volume. We learnt the difference between volume and capacity, we explored the units used to measure them and looked at how the volume can be the same but look very different depending on the size of the container. We then looked at estimating capacity. We were shown…

Adding using Cubes

This week, some children have been looking at adding numbers. We used the spinners to help us come up with a sum, and then we used the cubes to help us count. The children were able to work completely independently to solve some number problems- great work!

Superworm

'Superworm is super long! Superworm is super strong!'

We really enjoyed exploring this fantastic book! We made our own superworms and found things that were longer, shorter and the same length. We also looked at books about worms and had a Friday quiz to see how much information we had found…

Fact Families

Today we were looking at addition in Maths. We used the dice to generate 2 numbers, and we then added these together to get the third number. We used these to help us generate some fact families. For example: 2+4=6, 4+2=6, 6-4=2, 6-2=4. This helped us to see that addition is commutative whereas…

Measuring radius

 

We learnt what the term radius means. We learnt how importantly it was to keep the center of a circle the same when we draw one, so the radius is accurate. We went outside and practised, using ourselves as the center point and using string and chalk to draw our circles. We practised…

Comparing the Lengths of Objects

This week we have been looking at measure. Today we used our rulers to measure a range of objects, and then we had to compare the lengths. We worked out the difference in length between different objects, and some of us looked at some reasoning problems relating to measure.
