What do we need to cover?


  • Ma6/3.1a solve problems involving the calculation and conversion of units of measure, using decimal notation up to 2 decimal places where appropriate.
  • Ma6/3.1b use, read, write and convert between standard units, converting measurements of length, mass, volume and time from a smaller unit of measure to a larger unit, and vice versa, using decimal notation to up to 3 decimal places.
  • Ma6/3.1c convert between miles and kilometres.
  • Ma6/3.1d recognise that shapes with the same areas can have different perimeters and vice versa.
  • Ma6/3.1e recognise when it is possible to use formulae for area and volume of shapes.
  • Ma6/3.1f calculate the area of parallelograms and triangles.
  • Ma6/3.1g calculate, estimate and compare volume of cubes and cuboids using standard units, including cubic centimetres (cm3) and cubic metres (m3), and extending to other units.

Severus Snape's Potion Class - Having written their own potion instructions, and carrying out necessary ratio work, Year 6 set to estimating and measuring the mass of phials and vials and then measuring their capacity.

Mayan Maths Day - making nets for a stepped pyramid using rulers and card, using pyramidal numbers and triangular numbers, making nets for 3D shapes and using the Maya number system!
