Year 6 - Exploring volume in Maths


In Year 6, the children have been calculating the volume of different 3 dimensional shapes.  They used multi-link cubes to as concrete objects to create shapes with a specific volume. 

The children had to be self-regulated learners by choosing the most appropriate method for them when calculating volume. As mathematicians they had to decide if it was time to use the formulae for the volume of shapes or better to count the cubes.

Nicole, Almond Class said: 'Volume is the amount of space a 3D shape takes up.'

Indianna, Oak Class, said 'making the shape with the cubes helped me to work out how many hidden cubes there actually were.'
