Christmas is fast approaching and don't we just know it! We have had a visit from Eddie the Elf and have decorated our classroom this week (see our pictures below!). 


In maths, we have been 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...



The have also been subtracting two 2-digit numbers (not crossing ten). We have drawn our tens and ones to help us and checked our answers using the column method. How would you work this problem out?




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:
