We really enjoyed working with lots of different equipment as we thought about shape. We worked on building our own 3D shapes with art straws, using cubes to build 3D shapes and looking at them from different orientations and recognising and naming lots of different 2D shapes.
Summer 1- 2018
In Maths the main topics that will be covered are:
Measures – this topic will involve us looking at length, mass and capacity. We will learn to read different scales, solve problems linked to measures and comparing different measurements. The children will also think about money, paying for several items and giving change.
Perimeter: the children will learn how to calculate the perimeter of a variety of shapes. They will learn to take accurate measurements and make the appropriate calculations to find the perimeter.
Time: the children will learn how to tell the time, add hands to clocks and solve time word problems.
Shape: the children will learn about the properties of 2D and 3D shapes and recognise that angles are also a property of a shape.
Statistics – using bar charts, pictograms and tables to interpret data and solving one and two step problems linked to these.
