Soap


In our topic this term we have been working to produce presentations and a soap opera.
Teams have done: the science of soap, the history of soap, bubble printing, amazing bubble poems, soap operas [good to be me] and moonlight maths where we had to create net’s of 3D shapes an the shapes them selves.

Red Nose Day


We all did something funny for money around Warley Woods. Some of us barked like dogs, wore our clothes backwards, skipped, three legged walking, bounced like rabbits and had pillow fights along the way. It was great fun for a really good cause.

Maths Challenge – Moonlight Soap

This is the challenge that Year 6 at Bearwood are working on this week, to help us answer questions about 2d and 3d shape, area, perimeter, volume and nets.

How would you do it?

You have been hired to design the packaging for a new range of soaps.

You have just 3 days to plan and construct the following boxes.

You will work in teams of 3.

Your work will be scored by the rest of the class and the winning team will receive the contract for making all of the packaging for Moonlight.

As a team you will need to design 4 boxes:

A cube for a football soap with a volume of 64cm cubed.
A cuboid for a bar of soap with a volume of 100 cm cubed
A square based pyramid for a bath bomb
A triangular prism for a bottle of liquid soap.

All boxes must meet strict standards:

Correct number of faces
Correctly shaped faces
Correct connection
Accurate measurements
Nets must be displayed for future use
Boxes must be displayed showing final designs
The perimeter and area of each face must also be displayed on the net.

The crystal water was so clear you could see the bottom of the sea. It was so clear that a girl came to see it. The girl was called Natasha. She always thought of swimming down there. Natasha came back after dinner. She scattered up the hill and down. She ran fast as the wind. Natasha saw fire works twirling in the sky. She was staring, quietly. Suddenly she rolled down and down then SPLASH! She drowned.
