Number Day – Maths in Science – Year Six

It was great to see so many different numbers in Year Six today.

We started the day completing a fractions focused, Bletchley Park style code breaking activity. Children had to break the code in order to read the message but they had to answer some tricky maths problems first.

We then gave the children 50 minutes to work on their multiplication and number skills through the TTRockstars and NumBots apps.

This afternoon, children have used their mathematical skills in science. They have explored how the angle of light is related to the angle of reflection by stretching string from a light-source to the object and then to the eye. We then used protractor to measure the angle of these lines and tried to notice a pattern. Here are the children in action.
