Well done for another super week, Owls! 


In maths, we have been finding 10 more and 10 less than a number. Show someone how we do this (remember, the tens change but the ones stay the same):

We then applied this knowledge to add and subtract by ten (e.g. 34 + 40 and 56 - 20). We drew our tens and ones to do this and also tried using our column method. Which method did you prefer? Try the column method below (remember to always start with the ones!):

We have also been adding two 2-digit numbers (not crossing ten). We used practical equipment to help us with this. We then applied this to our column method. Have a look at our example below:

We then tried adding two 2-digit numbers that cross ten. For this, we used both equipment and our column method. We had to remember to exchange 10 ones for 1 ten...




In English, we have been learning our new model text, a non-chronological report. Can you tell someone at home what a non-chronological report is? Our report is all about Queen Victoria. Can you remember any of the facts you learnt? We have also been learning how to use subordinating conjunctions. Can you complete the sentences below:


a) I smiled because ________________________________________________________________________


b) I am allowed to eat my ice cream if ____________________________________________


c) I will have a party when ____________________________________________________________



In topic, we have been learning about a Victorian artist, William Morris. We designed our own wallpaper prints inspired by his designs. We then created our own. Can you tell someone at home how we did this? Take a look at our pictures below:
