Mrs Hills' Group (5/6)
Welcome to Mrs Hills' maths group where we love maths!
Welcome to term six and a very warm welcome to all those pupils new to my group this term. This term we will be working hard to consolidate a few more areas of the maths curriculum before the end of the academic year. Please ensure you come to maths groups with the right equipment and a positive attitude to learning so that we can get settled quickly and make the most of the learning opportunities we have left this year.
If you are not sure about any mathematical terminology used in lessons please check it out using the excellent online, interactive maths dictionary by Jenny Eather by clicking on the button below.
The following areas of the curriculum will be covered over the course of the term:
Properties of Shape
*draw 2-D shapes using given dimensions and angles
*recognise, describe and build simple 3-D shapes, including making nets
*compare and classify geometric shapes based on their properties and sizes and find unknown angles in any triangles, quadrilaterals, and regular polygons
*convert between miles and kilometres
*recognise that shapes with the same areas can have different perimeters and vice versa
*recognise when it is possible to use formulae for area and volume of shapes
*calculate the area of parallelograms and triangles
*use simple formulae
*generate and describe linear number sequences
*express missing number problems algebraically
*find pairs of numbers that satisfy an equation with 2 unknowns
*enumerate possibilities of combinations of 2 variables
Below are some links to some good revision sites. Click on the buttons below and take the opportunity to consolidate and develop your mathematical knowledge, skills and understanding.
Here are some of the cool things we use in class and love.
As requested by a number of students, please find below a link to a website which has lots of practice arithmetic papers. Please do not spend ages pratising. Like we do in class, spend five to ten minutes working through some of the questions at a time. You DO NOT need to print out the papers (as this is very bad for the environment) - you can just work off the screen and write the calculations down on your paper. If you are stuck on any particular questions please bring them into school and I will help you. Remember, we have not covered the whole year six curriculum yet so do not worry or panic if there are some questions you can not do.
