The children in Year 6 have been learning about volume.  To begin with, they used multilink cubes to make 3D shapes of given volumes and learnt that shapes with the same volume can look very different.  Then, they used the cubes to make 3D shapes from pictures and find their volumes. The children went on to learn that to calculate the volume of cubes and cuboids you multiply the length by the width by the height. All of the children calculated the volumes of cubes and cuboids accurately and there was some excellent problem solving activities completed too.
