3D and 2D Shapes and Properties of Triangles
In Maths this term we are looking at 2d and 3d shapes and the properties they have such as vertices ( corners of the shape), how many sides each shape has, nets to make the 3d shapes and how many lines of symmetry each shape has.
When looking at triangles we will look at all 4 different types of triangles, right angled triangle, isosceles triangle, scalene triangle and an equilateral triangle. We will look at the properties of all triangles and also what the angles are worth in each one, which is easy for us to remember as in every one of the triangles we look at they all add up to 180 degrees!
In Washington class we have been looking at angles. We have learnt how to use a protractor to measure an angle and what the different angles are called e.g. Reflex angle, right angle, obtuse and acute angles. We then went outside in our environment and looked at all the different angles around us.
After doing some super work in fractions and learning all the rules we have now moved onto converting measures. All the children have been learning how to convert length such as, cm (centre metres) into metres and into mm (millimetres). Washington have also looked at converting measure of weight e.g. grams, kilograms and tonnes.
Challenge time in maths for Washington Class, learning all about fractions! We have been learning how to add, subtract, multiply and divide fractions and find fractions of shapes.
In Maths we have been looking at multiplication. We started by learning all about factors using our times tables and finding common factors of numbers.
Then we challenged ourselves to multiply numbers and money using column method.
