MEASURING VOLUME IN ML AND LITRES
We measured water in various vessels and containers by reading the scale and then finding how many ml each container held. We then converted this into litres using a decimal point.
WEIGHING WITH DIGITAL SCALES
Today we weighed objects in grams and then converted into kg and grams and then just kg. For example, 1064g = 1kg 64g or 1.064 kg
DIVIDING BY 10 AND 100
We used a column table and digit cards to practice making numbers 10 and 100 times smaller by dividing. We moved numbers down our number system one or two places.
LEARNING ABOUT DECIMALS
We played an 'exchange' game with a partner using a dice and tenth counters. We collected tenths then exchanged them for whole ones. This consolidated our understanding of how many tenths in a whole one and how to write decimals also.
To consolidate our understanding of hundredths and tenths and one whole, we played the exchange game.
We rolled a dice and collected 1/100’s.
Then we exchanged to 1/10 when we had 10 hundredths.
The first person to get to 1 whole was the winner!
We learnt that we needed 100/100’s to get 1 whole and win.
ROCK AROUND THE CLOCK DAY - WATER CLOCK CHALLENGE
We have learnt about democracy in ancient Greece and how water clocks were used to control how long people could debate issues.
We have made water clocks in pairs and tried to fill with the correct amount of water for 1 minute. We timed this with stop watches and needed to adjust the amount of water to get closest to 1 minute. We all came so close!
USING PRACTICAL EQUIPMENT FOR DEEP UNDERSTANDING
Using practical equipment to understand how to exchange and rename for subtraction.
We have used Place Value counters also to subtract without renaming.
