Maths – In maths this week we have been learning about probabilities and how they relate to other areas of maths like algebra. We have  learnt that if you roll a die there is a 3 in 6 chance that you will roll an even number. We display this as:  P(6)=3 in 6 or 1 in 2 or as 1/2! We have really enjoyed it!

In maths last week we learnt about simple linear patterns, how to lay them out correctly and also how to recognise the patterns easily.

In maths this week the P6’s have been learning about pie charts and line graphs and how to read them.

Our learning last week:

On Thursday 3rd of March it was world World Book Day so we had to dress up as our favourite character.  Mrs Robertson took the whole school out for orienteering in the afternoon. It was fun! We worked in groups and we had to read the map, orientate it and thumb it and find all the control points.  It was quite hard but my group did pretty well.  Health & Wellbeing/ Maths /literacy  Torri/Benjamin/Josh/Bethany/Ella Malaika
