Y6 – Maths – 3D Shapes: Euler’s Law and Platonic Solids

As part of our unit of shape, Year 6 children have been exploring 3D shapes. In this lesson, children were investigating Euler’s Law (That, in many 3D shapes, the number of faces plus the number of vertices is 2 more than the number of edges or F+V=E+2), using polydron. Children were also built the 5 […]

Y6 – Science – Reflection

In Science this half term, Year 6 are learning about light and seeing. Having established last week that light travels in straight lines, this week, we have been exploring how light can change its direction of travel by reflecting off a surface, always reflecting at an equal angle to which it approached the surface. Children […]

Y2 Maths – fractions of shapes

We have been learning about halves, thirds and quarters. This week we used salt dough to help us represent different fractions e.g. two thirds. If you want to practise this learning at home, you could play on ’Fractonio’s Pizza’ on PurpleMash.

Y4 Bread Baking

To finish our ‘Food for Thought’ learning journey, Y4 baked bread! We thought about some of the changes of state taking place in the process – including the reaction of yeast, the mixing of water and flour, and how butter can be made from shaking whipping cream (for a long time).

Y6 – Making ratios

In maths, Year 6 have been learning about ratio. To help the children initially get to grips with what a ratio is, children created ratios using objects from around the room, simplifying the ratios when needed. This activity also helped demonstrate to pupils how flexible ratios can be compared to other part-whole concepts, such as […]
