Active Learning - Literacy/WAU

We were introduced to a new app today called 'Word Foto'. We were recapping all we had learned in our WW1 topic.  Using our literacy knowledge of adjectives, we created adjective photos of a soldier, the trenches and war horses.  Have a look and see what you think.

WW1 iPad 'Numbers' Activity

As part of our WW1 topic, we were asked to research an area of WW1 and collect relevant data.  Using our new iPads, that have recently been added to our classroom, we worked together to manipulate an app called 'Numbers'.  This is an app that allowed us to create a table and a chart of choice, for example, bar chart or pie chart.  Find a few examples below that shows our finished efforts.

'Pleased to meet you' Handshaking Task

Today, we were investigating how many handshakes there would be if two people, then three people, etc. all shook hands.  In groups we had to discuss and plan a strategy to tackle the task and be successful.  It all got a little confusing at one stage, but eventually we managed to work systematically and find a pattern!!

World Book Day Problem Solving Activities

Task 1 - Using a given book, we had to decide how we would test the amount of time it would take someone to read the first chapter. 

 

Task 2 - Using a container/box and a book, we had to calculate how many books would fit in the container. 

 

Task 3 - We were given this problem: ' Jane wants a length of ribbon to wrap her books up but she has lost her tape!  Can you help her to cut a 49cm length using only the lengths she had already cut: 47cm, 43cm and 41cm?'.

 

Task 4 - We had to investigate how many ways we could make the price on the back of the book provided.  Any number and type of coins could be used. 

 

All of the above tasks proved to push our logical thinking and reasoning skills.  Plus the ability to listen to others' opinions!! Take a look at our pictures below.

RBS 6 Nations Rugby Data Handling Activity

Today, we were sorting data collected from the current RBS 6 Nations rugby tournament using Carroll diagrams and Venn diagrams.  We enjoyed sorting flag colours/patterns, player caps and points and country names and scores.  Much discussion took place to sort the data given and to help generate criteria that could be used to sort the data in various ways.

PDMU- Drugs and Alcohol Programme

 

Jeanie brought along her special googles that helped us to realised how alcohol can adversely affect our vision and self awareness.  Even though we had fun trying to walk around he cones with the goggles on, we still were taught a very importance message about how alcohol can affect our bodies.

Diagonals - Today we were making polygons and showing the number of diagonals using string and lots of willing helpers.  It was helpful to be able to 'stand' inside the polygon and touch each diagonal as we counted.  It really helped as we went on to carry out an investigation on diagonals in polygons up to 20 sides!!!

We have filled our marble jar again. We earned the marbles for being helpful, good manners and generally being the best pupils we can be!! Well Done Y6B!

Human Tree Diagrams - This afternoon we were making human tree diagrams.  Each group was given a set of labels, numbers and instructions and we had to create a tree diagram to sort the information. This activity have good oprtunity for useful discussion and healthy debate! Have a look at our pictures.

IZAK9 - Today we were exploring and observing patterns and connections between numbers on the Izak9 cubes.  We had as much fun figuring out our challenges as we had trying to fit the cubes back into the boxes again! We can't wait to use them again.

Differentiated Length Activities were completed today, to reinforce our learning in length. 

 

Task 1 - Using two small squares, one large square and the statement 'When arranged the design measures 36cm x 28cm.  The squares are not to scale', we had to solve how to calculate the length of the large square.

 

Task 2 - Efficient Measures Task.  We had to use 2x3m strips and1x 2m strip to try and show distances from 1m to 8m lengths. 

 

Task 3 - The Centimetre Game.  Using a selection of 8 lengths of paper, we had to estimate and then measure the length of each strip.  Results were recorded in a table provided. 

 

Take a look at our pictures to see all our hard work.

Today we were working on two different length activities. 

1) Investigating a statement

Vitruvius, an ancient Roman architect said, "A person's arm span is the same as his height."  We had to investigate the statement, examine patterns and draw conclusions based on our findings. 

 

2) Hands and Feet Investigation

Others had to investigate if their is a link between the size of people's hands and feet.  Results were recorded in a table and analysed to determine if this statement was true.  There were some smelly feet being measured today!!!

 

Have a look at our photos to see how we got on!

Today we completed a 'clustering' task which involved us getting up and about our classroom.  We were each given a card with a measurement fact.  It was our task to move around the room and compare what our card said with that of someone else.  If we thought our card meant the same or matched someone else we had to form a 'cluster'.  After some deliberation, we all found the correct cluster.  However, some of us actually found out we could have matched two different clusters.  Good discussion followed trying to decide which cluster group was best.  Well done everyone!

This week was Maths Week in Millington and so to celebrate all things Numeracy, we completed a 'Carousel of Numeracy Tasks'. 

Activity 1 - Next Door Numbers

Activity 2 - Izak 9

Activity 3 - Tower of Hanoi

Activity 4 - Shoe Box Money

 

In order to complete these activities, we had to work together as a group, listen to each others' opinions and work systematically to solve a series of problems. 

 

After a lot of discussion, we did it and were successful at completing the tasks given to us!
