This week we have been looking at angles. We have been trying to estimate and measure angles and naming them.

Ask us the difference between a right angle, an acute, obtuse and a reflex angle. They are all around us in every day life.

We drew all over our desks today (but rubbed it off) to show our knowledge of angles!!

This term we are focusing on Geometry. We have spent the past week looking at 3d shapes and describing their properties. There are 3d shapes all around us so have a look out for them and see if you can tell what shapes they are.

Here are a few to get you started..... Our measures topic is continuing as we look at mass. We have examined how heavy or light something is and whether we would measure it in kilograms or grams.

Ask us to guess the weight of objects around the house and then check the labels to see if we're correct.

Remember:

1000g=1Kg

Can you spot any patterns? Which cards match up? We are looking at measures and trying to convert between different units of measure. Ask us about converting between mm, cm, m and km.

10mm=1cm

100cm=1m

1000m=1km

This week we are trying to understand the relationship between fractions, decimals and percentages.

Would you rather have 50% of £200, 1/4 of £500 or 0.1% of £1000? Can you explain why?

Have a look at the picture below to see if you can spot a pattern.

We are fractions superstars!!

Fractions have been difficult but we did not let that stop us! We are now confident in:

• Adding and subtracting fractions
• Multiplying fractions
• Finding equivalent fractions
• Simplifying fractions
• Converting fractions from improper to mixed numbers and vice versa.

In maths we have been looking at fractions. Today we used smarties to help us understand what fractions looked like. Can you work out these fraction questions from our pictures?

What fraction of the smarties were red?

What fraction were orange?

What should the denominator have been?

Can you simplify any of the fractions?
