Class 6 – Butterflies 2015-16

Butterfly Class 22.4.16

In maths this week we have been adding and subtracting using different strategies – number lines, 100 squares and numicon. We have also been adding two 2 digit numbers and finding the missing number in calculations.

For English we read ‘What The Ladybird Heard’ and ‘What The Ladybird Heard Next’. We thought about what the characters might say to each other and then used speech bubbles to show what they were saying. Next we used inverted commas to re-write the speech in sentences. We made wanted posters about Lanky Len and Hefty Hugh, describing what their crimes were and what their characters look like. We also wrote a letter to Hefty Hugh and Lanky Len to tell them how angry we felt about them destroying our farm and trying to steal our animals.
