Today, we explored 3D shapes. We sorted them based on their properties and learnt some new vocabulary. We counted the faces, edges and vertices and then matched them to their name at the end of the lesson.
Yesterday afternoon, we recorded the results from our science experiment as a line graph. This allowed us to clearly see that the water on the radiator melted at a much quicker rate than the one on the table and one still in the freezer. We were able to make links with this to global warming and the fact the ice caps at melting at a faster rate due to the Earth warming up.
In maths, we’ve been learning about fractions, decimals and percentages. We enjoyed consolidating our understanding with a board game at the end of the unit!
Today in maths, we have looked at doubling numbers. We doubled the ladybird’s spots and told our partners what double the number was. We then used our fingers to show double the numbers. We’re getting really good at remembering our doubles!
Last week in maths, we begun looking at pairs. We started off by taking items from a basket and finding our pair within the room. Next, Miss Welburn set us a challenge of pairing up all of the wellies from our pegs. We worked really hard to pair them all up and explained how we knew that they were pairs using size, patterns and colours.
We have been super busy in our maths lesson today 🙂 We have consolidated many areas! We looked at our timestables, fractions, pictograms and some arithmetic based questions. Great positive attitudes by all this morning 🙂
We continue to work on gaps from our arithmetic tests 🙂 What a fantastic lesson we had today!
Today we recapped angles from our lesson on Friday. We used our arms to make the 3 different types of angles we had learnt. We explained how we know if an angle is acute, obtuse or a right angle. We then applied our learning to some different questions, using our partners for support. From here we started to compare angles using the symbols < > = We named the angle first then used the correct symbol to compare. We then applied our learning to lollipop sticks and practised making and comparing angles with these. Next we looked at comparing 3 or more angles and then ordered them from smallest to the biggest. We applied our knowledge to a variety of questions then practised a little more with our lollipop sticks.
In maths this week, we have been learning about angles and turns. Today, we learnt the terms acute, right and obtuse to describe angles and created our own.
Before half term, we had been learning about mass and capacity and what better way to apply what we had learnt than making pancakes! Carefully, we worked in groups to measure out the ingredients accurately. Finally, we added on our toppings of choice and then we got to eat them- delicious 😋
