I’m sure that you have been studying your scripts over the past few days. Next week, we will be looking in depth at the four main characters of the play. What are Grandad, Grandma, Alice and Jack like? What have you noticed about them? What kind of people are they? How would you describe them?
Next week we will be focussing on subtraction. The first thing we need to know is how you do subtraction at the moment, so here are some questions for you to have a go at.
83 – 57 382 – 155 444 – 186 502 – 245 1625 – 717 3007 – 1999
Do them in your learning log and post your answers on the blog. Then watch these videos. They explain some subtraction methods which you may have used in school. What do you think? Do you have any questions?
There are many ways of doing subtraction and we have to find those that work consistently for us. You need one “go to” method that you would use for most questions because it always works. There may then be other questions that you use other methods for because it is more efficient.
We had an interesting chat about these numbers earlier.

No flipped learning this week, but an opportunity to practise further what we have been doing in class. Many of you are using the column method of vertical addition. Others are using other methods alongside this until you get more confident. You have been given 3 sets of questions for you to look at. Choose the section that you want to do and complete them in your learning log. House points to everyone who completes one section.
Feel free to post any questions or comments here.
Fancy more practice? Have a go at this. Can you complete level 6?
