The taller you are, the further you can throw. True or false?

Standard

This afternoon, as part of our health day, Miss Cash’s maths group investigated whether height has an effect on how far a person can throw. We tried to make it a fair test by throwing balls that were the same size, from the same stating position and using an over arm technique. Each person threw three times and we then calculated the mean. We plotted our results on a scatter graph to see if there was any correlation to answer our question. What do you think our scatter graph shows? How do you think we could improve our investigation or our recording next time?

Maths Money Challenge!

Standard

This week we have been applying our money skills to lots of different situations.

Here is an extra investigation to try, from the Nrich website. See if you can post an answer in the comments!

Ram divided 15 pennies among four small bags.

He labelled each bag with the number of pennies inside it.

He could then pay any sum of money from 1p to 15p without opening any bag.

How many pennies did Ram put in each bag?

Big Charity Day Fun!

Standard

On Friday, many Year 6 children voted for which teachers they would like to see get the most soaked – all for a good cause, of course. Miss Edwrads was the clear winner from year 6, with a massive number of votes! Mrs McCarthy, however, was voted for twice as many times as Miss Edwards. Take a look at the photos!
