In our Maths lessons, Year 5 have been learning about area, perimeter and volume. This is our display which shows some of our wonderful work.
Firstly we explored perimeter by using squares and squared paper to create
different polygons including squares, rectangles and hexagons.
We then learnt how to calculate the perimeter by measuring all the straight sides
and finding the total distance around the outside of each polygon.
After that, we investigated the difference between area and perimeter.
We calculated the area of squares, rectangles, triangles and compound
shapes by counting squares.
Soon we learnt to use a formula: Area of a rectangle = Length x Breath
Area of a triangle = 1/2 (Length x Breath)
Next, we explored volume by making polyhedrons from cubes including different letters
We also learnt the formula for the volume of a square or rectangle =
Length x Breath x Height and investigated patterns.
Finally, we explored the link between volume and capacity by estimating and measuring liquids.
