Even though it is World Book Day today and there are activities for this I do need to see your Maths, so please send this in.  I am on a training course during the afternoon so will be unable to answer emails.  I will reply to work sent in on Friday morning.



LO: to add and subtract amounts in pounds and pence


Today’s lesson in a continuation of yesterday’s lesson where you learnt to add and subtract pounds and pence.  Today, you will be using column addition and subtraction as well as place value counters as you work with larger amounts.  You don’t need to do the In Focus question but as always, work your way through the Maths lesson, ensuring that you fully understand the concepts before starting the workbook pages.    If you are unsure about any parts of the lesson please let me know and I will help you through it.   Please send me your completed Maths workbook and challenge to me.




Please watch the World Book Day assembly (the link has been sent by email).

Don't forget that there's the create a book character challenge.  Use everyday items to create a model of a book character.  You could use a wooden spoon, plastic bottle, cardboard box, a stone or even a potato as the ‘body’ of your character.  Add their ‘costume’ and facial features by painting or sticking paper, card, felt etc. onto the body.  Add your final details and done!  Who will win?  Be really creative!
