Today I have got a couple of videos to remind you how to add and subtract 2 two-digit numbers. Click the links for the videos. Then make up some of your own number sentences e.g. 34 + 23 =       65 - 24 =

If you prefer to draw your jottings underneath each number (like we do in class) that's ok! Some of you may be able to work mentally too by adding the tens up in your head and then the ones.

Literacy- Write a letter to your class teacher and tell them about what you have been doing.           

     

                                                          

 

When planning your letter don't forget to think about:

  • The purpose of your letter.
  • Including conjunctions in your sentences.
  • Adding some time connectives.
  • Remember your non-negotiables.
  • Think about your presentation, handwriting and spelling.

 

Remember to keep re-reading your letter back to check it makes sense.

How about a new pen pal or sending a letter to the author of your favourite book?

Today I have got you a numeracy challenge and a new website to explore that I think you will really like!

 

Numeracy 10 more and 10 less

Make your own tens and ones using straws, tooth pics, pencils (or anything else you can think of which you can make into bundles of ten).

Make your own tens and ones baseboard and practise adding and subtracting 10 from your number.

Link to video on adding 10:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gqUtj9rkYCU&list=UUob4tkfOSXy6yav9Y54SKIQ&index

 

The video shows how to work with 'hundreds' too. Don't worry if you're not sure about this. You only need to be able to add and subtract tens from two digit numbers at the moment.

Home Learning Week 2 (1.4.20)

 

Your challenge for today is to write a character profile about a member of your family. Start by drawing a picture of them and then write about their appearance and their personality. Try to start each sentence in a different way.

 

He/she has....

You might notice that...

In my opinion...

It is true that...

 

To take your learning further why not write a character profile for your favourite book/film/tv character.

You could make a game of 'times tables bingo' or 'times table pairs'.
