Year 6 Latest News
Year 6 absolutely loved making Viking heads out of clay. We cant wait to see the end result.
This year the pupils in Primary 6 have been using a new mathematical concept known as IZAK9, which is essentially a large cube made up of 27 smaller cubes. The class is split into smaller groups and are given tasks to try to solve. These tasks include things such as fractions, percentages, magic squares, decimals and many more puzzles which require lots of thinking skills and working as a team. Everyone has thoroughly enjoyed taking part and trying to solve many of the extremely difficult challenges provided by this new game. A huge thanks also to the Parents and Friends who provided the money to purchase the equipment – it has certainly been money very well spent.
We loved playing the 5-digit game. You and your partner throw the dice and whoever scores the highest number wins! As you can tell from our pictures we had so much fun!
Year 6 have been ordering numbers from smallest to largest and largest to smallest. We were each given a number and had to decide who went where in the line. Fingers crossed we all are in the correct position.
Mr Beggs' class used the IZAK 9 cubes and carried out tasks such as rebuilding the cubes and also doing tasks such as eliminator and magic squares. They especially loved problem solving using bearings.
