There was a hive of activity in primary 5 just before Christmas as all pupils were involved in a carousel doing three maths activities. There was present wrapping in order to help Santa and working out the weights and costs of parcels which needed to be sent by post. There was also a cocktail party with nibbles where you had to mix the cockail of your choice.
This was the end of a lot of hard work this term on measuring volume, weight and length. Well Done everyone!
Miss Boyd’s P5 Maths set were tossing pancakes in maths this week!
Why?? They were trying out their new skills in weighing and measuring in grams, kilograms, millilitres and litres. This is a REAL LIFE context for their learning.
They had to be very accurate with all the ingredients so that their pancakes were as tasty as possible. Click here for a link to the recipe if you fancy trying it yourself…
Miss Boyd’s P5 maths set have been going shape crazy over the last few days. They have been learning all about 3D shapes. They now know how many faces and edges they’ve got AND how many corners too (we call them vertices though!). They then made some 3D shapes out of construct-o-straws. Look at the fabulous shapes they managed to make! Can you spot the CUBE? CUBOID? TRIANGULAR PYRAMID (that’s our newest one)? TRIANGULAR PRISM? Some of them even made OCTAGONAL PRISMS without even realising what they were called!!
