Week 6 (26/3/18)

Maths We’re doing area and perimeter of irregular (odd) shapes.  We have been learning to put a 1cm grid over the shape, then we counted the whole squares, then we counted the partial squares.  if it looks obvious that some partial squares will make a whole we count that as…

Week 5 (19/3/18)

Numeracy We have been looking at area and perimeter. We know that to find the area of a quadrilateral we multiply the length by the width. But when you are trying to find the area of a compound shape, the shapes needs to be split into separate quadrilaterals, calculate the…

Week 4 (12/3/18)

Mr Morton returns!   Maths We started the week reviewing and sharpening up on our fractions knowledge. Then we went onto Area and Perimeter, working in small groups to calculate the answer, which can be sometimes a missing number on the shape.  We have been introduced to simple algebra –…

Week 2 (15/1/18)

Maths We have been exploring fractions this week. Equivalent fractions means it’s the same amount of shape but the shape has been divided up into a different number of pieces. We have been learning to add and subtract fractions, which have answers with mixed numbers. Mixed numbers means = a…
