Calculating and comparing the volume of cuboids…

This week we have been learning how to calculate and compare the volume of cuboids using the formula L x W x H.

First we used cubes for our concrete approach and then we found the volume of different cuboid shaped boxes and compared them. We finished our learning by solving volume problems (missing lengths), reasoning about different volume statements and explaining our learning.

We all love Maths…

Our fabulous Maths Ambassadors have been supporting in classes (from Nursery to year 5) again this week. What a great job they are doing helping our children to deepen their understanding of different mathematical skills and asking children to explain their learning!

This week, in Maths, we have been looking at squared and cubed numbers.

Now, in the light of our new Mastery approach, we like to get “hands on” and physically make something that proves ( or disproves !) our learning.

So when dealing with cubed numbers, what did we do ?  Make big cubes out of smaller cubes, that’s what !

In the picture we have show that 3 x 3 x 3 equals 27.  Have a go yourselves..

Keep cubing !
