Maths & Mayas

23 Jun 2022

We have had another very busy week in Class 4; the weeks are flying by! 

Recently in maths, we have been working on our problem solving skills in lots of different contexts. We have spent time on solving problems that include metric and imperial measures, and earlier this week we were focusing on shape. For one of the problems we were working with nets of different shapes, and so the children really enjoyed using the polydron to help them with this. The children have demonstrated excellent teamwork skills along with impressive mathematical reasoning and perseverance. We are now working on solving problems with angles.
Slide Show 

We have now completed all of our learning on Ancient Maya. We started out this unit by aiming to answer the question 'What was it like to live life as a Mayan?' and I feel very confident that we can all now comfortably answer it.

I asked the children to try to demonstrate this by creating a piece of work to answer the above question. They had to decide which information would effectively answer it, and they had to present it in the best way possible. 

The finished products were wonderful and ably demonstrated that they could use all they knew to explain life in Ancient Maya. The wealth of knowledge the children have is very impressive. We have all really enjoyed learning about this ancient civilisation that most of us had never even heard of before. 

We look forward to sharing all of the work we have done on Ancient Maya next week during our open book morning.
