Year 6 at The Globe
On Monday 21st March 2016, Year 6 went to the Globe Theatre, London. We had a tour of the venue and were able to perform a few lines on the stage to the other groups visiting the place. We then took part in an hour's workshop with a Shakespearean Actor.
Week 1 starting 4/1/16 we will be looking at multiplication and division. We will be working hard to improve our efficiency for these calculations. Playing the games below should help you.
During week 2 we will be examining area of shapes, both regular and irregular. you should find the following website useful.
Week 3 will include calculating unknown angles in triangle, quadrilaterals on s straight line and around a point. have a look here to give you a heads up for the lesson.
Week 4 leads us onto fractions, we shall be reminding ourselves about adding and subtracting fractions. We will be learning how to multiply and divide fractions with different denominators and mixed number fractions.
Why not improve you literacy skills by playing these fantastic games?
We will be working on biographies for the first couple of weeks. Why not do a little pre-reading before hand.
Here is a useful page for adults.
In our class we like to track our own attendance %. We worked out that each pupil is worth 5% as there are 20 of us as 20 x 5 = 100. We estimate that a late session is 2.5%.
We would then calculate the daily percentage for each day of the week and then calculate the mean for the whole week by adding each day and dividing by 5, the number of days we are at school.
For more help calculating % check out our podcast on %.
Our attendance results so far for the term:
Week 4 = 95.9%
Week 3 = 97.8%
Week 2= 96.4%
Week 1= 93.4
Our average attendance for the year is currently 93.8%
We have been working on multiplication using the column method. Can you solve this task ?
A 3 digit number is multiplied by a 2 digit number and the calculation is written out as shown below.
Each star like this stands for one digit.
We revised the properties of 2 and 3 D shapes using a shape domino game
In PE we have been practicing balancing and jumping
We went to The Royal Harbour School, Ramsgate
Year 6 went to visit the Royal Harbour School for the afternoon of 6th October to experience life in a secondary school. We made bridges, learnt street dance and much more.
Many of you were eager to carry on with the outstanding maths you were doing in class. I have added a couple of questions for you to give a go. A team point will be awarded for solutions to these, in old money, level 6 questions.
f = 23.45
s = 5.67
g = 9.87
r = ?
(3f+2s) - (3g+15.98) = r
r = ?
75.45 + (4r-s) = q
q = ?
