Next week in topic we are writing a persuasive leaflet on saving water.
Next week in Maths we will continue working on column addition for subtraction before moving on to solve missing number problems with bar models.
This week in topic we have started learning about the water cycle. We used the vocabulary evaporation, condensation, precipitation and collection. First we set up an experiment which we observed over the week. After that we sang a song about the water cycle and created some actions. Then we learnt about water distribution in the UK and compared it to Ghana. Finally we created a poster to encourage people to save water.
This week in maths, we focussed on column addition and begun our work on column subtraction. To add, we created the numbers using place value counters and worked out the total. Sometimes we had to bridge as well! For subtraction, we made the first number and subtracted the smaller number. Sometimes we had to exchange a ten counter for some extra ones in order to solve the number sentence.
