In maths today we have been estimating the capacity of common sized containers. Once we knew how much certain bottles contained, it helped us to predict with greater accuracy, the size of unknown containers.
See if you can use your new estimation skills to work out the capacity of containers you may have at home.

We know that something vibrates to create sound but it is easy to confuse changing pitch with volume. Volume relates to sounds getting louder or quieter and pitch refers to how high or low sounds are. We spent another afternoon experimenting with elastic bands to try and vary both pitch and volume.
Thanks to all those families who have returned permission slips and money for the Kelham Island visit. If you haven’t yet then please do so by Friday this week.
We do not expect anyone to go and buy outfits especially for this visit but dressing up does really add to the day. If you are wondering what sort of outfit might be suitable for dressing up, here are a few ideas from last year:
What an hectic week we have had in maths!
We have looked at lots of ‘connected’ areas.
Prime numbers, cube numbers, square numbers, sequences and factors!
Ask your children and/or friends if they can recall them.
Test each other to show how much you know!
It was lovely to hear about some of the Mini-Adventures that your children have been involved in over the summer. The children listened to each other really well and asked interesting questions.
If your child hasn’t yet brought in their summer home learning; the reading or the mini-adventure then there is still time. We’d love to see them.
We had great fun on Monday afternoon exploring how sounds are made using various musical instruments. The children were fascinated with the effect a vibrating tuning fork had on a bowl of water.
