What do we need to cover?


Ma6/3.2    Properties of Shape

  • Ma6/3.2a    draw 2-D shapes using given dimensions and angles.
  • Ma6/3.2b    recognise, describe and build simple 3-D shapes, including making nets.
  • Ma6/3.2c    compare and classify geometric shapes based on their properties and sizes and find unknown angles in any triangles, quadrilaterals, and regular polygons.
  • Ma6/3.2d    illustrate and name parts of circles, including radius, diameter and circumference and know that the diameter is twice the radius.
  • Ma6/3.2e    recognise angles where they meet at a point, are on a straight line, or are vertically opposite, and find missing angles.

Ma6/3.3    Position & Direction

  • Ma6/3.3a    describe positions on the full coordinate grid (all 4 quadrants).
  • Ma6/3.3b    draw and translate simple shapes on the coordinate plane, and reflect them in the axes.

Maya Maths! The Maya were geometry masters - here's how we tried to be like them while learning more about our topic subject AD900.

Bryan Angus - Art and maths collide! We looked at the work of Bryan Angus to link in with our English work on Flannen Isle. We found, identified and measured the angles, indentified and named shapes (2D and 3D) used in his art, parallel and perpendicular lines were identified and we also solved area and perimeter problems too, using rulers. The images below show some of the pieces of artwork we studied and also our own efforts at applying the maths to make our own prints of Bryan's work.

Outdoor Maths! Mastering position and direction (and revising some shape while we're at it, too!).
