Well Done.



I would like to start a new topic on Volume.
I have looked over the chapter and think that this is something you can all manage. However, if you do find it a struggle, please let me know.


Today’s lesson
Chapter 13

Lesson 1 - Understanding the Volume of Solids
Textbook pages: 236 - 238

In Focus
You do not have cubes at home so please go straight to the Let’s Learn

Take some time to read and think about the problem.
Think about how you can make two different solids using 2 cubes. Think about the shapes? Are they different? Did you realise the solids are the same because they have just been turned on different sides. What can you say about how much space the solid occupies? It occupies 2 cubes.
How many solids can you make using 3 cubes? Can you make two different solids? What can you say about the volume? Do you agree that the shapes have the same ‘volume’. How many solids can you make using 4 cubes?

During Guided Practice, you are comparing solids with different volumes.

Once you have finished this you can complete your workbook: 

Worksheet 1: Understanding the Volume of Solids
Workbook pages: 155

There are lots of ways to stay active whilst you are at home. Obviously going outside and doing a sporting activity, playing a game or going for a walk are good options if you can do so safely and within the social distancing guidelines.

Here are some other ways you can stay active inside with the use of websites...

Davina(a couple of days ago)

Good evening Mrs Hunt and Mrs Jones, My Mum was just asking ,If we are go to school or we are still in lockdown. Because on the news it said year1 - 6 will be going back to school. ----- Hi Davina. It is Years Reception, One and Six starting again on Monday. Not Years 2, 3, 4 or 5.

summer(about a week ago)

can I please not be the only one at Wembley with mrs jones today is so lonely QnQ even tho it was very fun with her and not a load of people ;p Ha yes come on let's have some more come and join us. Mrs Jones

Davina(about a week ago)

Mrs Jones , I 'm getting confused about the science do you have to make it first then do it . I just don't get the task but i got the power point- Hi Davina yes so the Science is an investigation, so you test out different materials to cause friction and then once you've tested each one - test it again to make sure the results are accurate. Then write up your results and explain why you think one material is better than another. There is an extension task at the end of the powerpoint - if you wanted to try that one too. Hope that helps - Mrs Jones
