Maths Makes Sense

In the little class we have been learning with Maths Makes Sense. We use cups and decimetre sticks working with partners.

Circumference and Area of a Circle

On the 27th of September the P5-7 class were learning about circumferences. It was hard but lots of fun. We enjoyed it and you should try it out as there’s many steps, so if you’re bored you should do it!

Mean Icicles

Hope everyone is well.

Anyone bored, please see my post from yesterday.

Here’s another one for you. We’ve been learning about mean, median and mode in mathematics. Yesterday, I spotted these beauties hanging from a gutter: icicles! I carefully counted and measured them using technology (it was too cold and dangerous otherwise) and found the following lengths:

{23cm, 40cm, 25cm, 28cm, 44cm, 25cm, 32cm, 34cm, 30cm, 28cm, 32cm, 49cm, 37cm, 25cm}

Find:

  1. the mean length of icicle in cm.
  2. the median icicle length, in cm.
  3. and find the mode.

We’ve also been working on the internal angles of polygons and so far have found out pentagons and hexagons. Find out more.

Alternatively, find three dice and have a game of Yahtze, or teach someone how to play it.

Hope everyone is well in these adverse conditions.

Best wishes,

Mr A

Orienteering at Mabie

Here are some accounts from P5-7 of our trip orienteering last term:

 

WW2 Scale Drawings

P5-7 have been working really hard making WW2 scale drawings. Here’s a sneak preview.


 

Last day of last session

It seams like a dream now however here are some pics from the last day of last session. Bird Spotting in the morning, a round of golf on our own course (see design video below) in the afternoon, some final awards and the usual farewells to the P7s.

 

Award for Maths

Well done to James who was the fastest and most accurate with mental maths.

Working Hard

P1’s have been working hard with their maths work, they have been matching blocks to numbers 0 – 20.  Keep up the hard work girls!

Olympic Sailing Hopscotch

Some pupils having been using an app called Hopscotch. It’s a great way to learn various elements of mathematics including movement and rotation whilst also learning how to code.
