National Maths Day 2022
To mark national maths day, we took part in a whole class maths quiz. Some children entered the school competition and made an original maths game which they played with their friends in class. We even had a competition winner!
We have been using counters to help us visualise how to find the mean of a set of numbers.
In maths we have looked at how to share data equally between groups using counters to help us find the mean average.
We have been learning how unknown numbers can be represented using letters, and this is part of algebra. We have been making algebraic equations, solving equations nd using algebra to create our own equations.
WC - 10.1.22 & 17.1.22
Over the past two weeks year 6 have been working with decimals using different methods and ways to multiply and divide them. Firstly we looked at how to both multiply and divide decimals by 10,100 & 1000 accurately. After that we moved onto using formal methods of multiplying decimals by whole integers.
WC - 3.1.22
In maths this week we started by consolidating our knowledge of being able to plot and read co-ordinates on a four quadrant grid. Once we were confident with this, we moved on to translating shapes across quadrants using their co-ordinates. Using this knowledge, we moved onto reflecting shapes across both X and Y axis.
