Summer 1

Our topic this term is:
 
Easter: Explore the old and Discover the new!
 
This week in Maths we have enjoyed working towards a formal written method for addition.
 
We started with our expanded method.
 
+ 135 = 100 + 30 + 5
  217 = 200 + 10 + 7
  552 =300+40+12
 
We then moved to our vertical partitioning method.
 
+  124
   156
    200
    70
    10
   280
 
We are now practising our compact vertical method.
 
+ 234 
  151
  385
 
In English we have enjoyed designing our own creature. We will then use this creature to write our own non-chronological reports.
