In Maths this week we have started our learning on addition and subtraction. We have been looking to see what we can remember about the formal column method. We have also been looking at what is actually happening with each of the place value columns when we regroup and exchange by making the calculations out of counters.
In English we have started to look at biographies. We have written a biography about someone that we know very well for our cold writes. We have also been learning a biography which is all about Philippe Petit. We found some pictures of his amazing high wire walks and we were blown away!
In topic we have been looking at a range of sources to find out about Richard Arkwright and the water frame. We have also been finding out about how James Watt improved the steam engine and the impact that these inventions had.
