We then worked on our investigative skills, especially our skill at posing scientific questions and explaining our findings. We needed to plan and conduct a scientific investigation, posing scientific questions, all based on the properties of magnets. We are making great progress with our investigative skills and ensuring that we are conducting a fair test which is both reliable and accurate!
In Year 6 this week we have continued to learn about the area and perimeter of shapes such as parallelograms, rectangles and triangles. We then moved onto learning about 2D shapes. We looked at how to classify them using their properties and recapped vocabulary like quadrilateral and polygon. We looked at what angles shapes had and how we could use these. Lastly, we created flowcharts so other learners could use these to work through step by step to identify what shape they had.
