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.
In maths, we have 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?
We then moved onto subtracting two 2-digit numbers that do cross ten- this was a little trickier. We have to remember to exchange 1 ten for 1 ones... Can you show someone at home how we can do it?
In English, we have started to innovate (change) part of our non-chronological report about Queen Victoria. This week, we have done lots of research about Queen Elizabeth II. Can you remember any of the facts you learnt?
When was she born?
Who did she marry?
How many children did she have? Can you name one of them?
When did she become Queen?
What jobs/duties did she have?
What were her favourite dogs?
In topic, we have continued to look at Victorian houses and architecture. In groups, we designed and created our own rooms to form our Victorian-style dollhouse. We made a kitchen, a scullery, a front parlour, a dining room, a master bedroom and a nursery. Which room did you design? Take a look at our pictures below! Next week, we are going to put all of the rooms together to make our house.
