Across the school this week, all year groups have been working hard in maths.
Year 6 have discovered algebra and have learnt how easy and fun it is to use formula to explain a rule and how to work out the answer to one-step equations.
Year 5 have been converting fractions to decimals, problem solving by working out fractions of amounts and then converting the answers into decimals.
Year 4 have been learning about area (pupils are first introduced to the concept of area in Year 4) and how to work out the area of a space or shape. They used post-it notes to develop their understanding of the amount of space area takes and that area can be many different shapes.
Year 3 have been looking at measurement and have been working on efficient methods of calculation, so that they can make informed choices when problem solving with measurements.
Y1 have had a fun and exciting practical week learning about capacity. They have been outside with jugs of varying sizes and water and rice. They have been reading the scales on the measuring jugs to see what the capacity is and estimating how many cups of liquid are needed to fill different containers.
