# Sport Relief 2012!

For Sport Relief Key stage 2 walked up to Warley Woods to run a mile along with all the parents that helped out. We also took home some sponsor sheets so all of the money that we raised could go straight to Sport Relief for a very good cause. Every year group had different themes and had to dress up according to what theme you had. Year 6s was Cinderella. As part of this we wrote different sorts of stories based on Cinderella.

# Model Villages by Sumayyah

In our class, 6M, we have been making models from a different era  in time. We  were asked by our teacher, Mr Murphy,  to chose different  houses (castles,  future houses etc)

For our models we used: cardboard, wooden sticks and glue.

Our group is making brilliant progress however  we have one problem-  we are running out of wood! Mr Murphy, our class teacher,  is desperately  trying to fix this and hopefully we’ll succeed!

# Making Our Model Villages by Taha

To make our castles we need; wood, cardboard, PVA glue, card and imagination.

# Creating our own 'Steps to Success' by Rosemeen

Our teachers gave us a flip chart piece of paper with a question on.  My group was given addition.  Firstly,  we read the question.  As a group we  decided to use the column addition method to work out our question. Next we  had to write the steps to success to answer the question. After that we then we had  to present  the answer and steps to success to everyone in our class.

Our question: 344+57=

1.Set out the sum (always line up the HTU)

5. If your answer is a two digit number then carry if the left hand side.

6. Once you have added the ten you need to add the number that you  carried.

Hope this helps everyone with column addition.

Subtraction

1) Set the sum out with the largest number at the top.

2) Line up the numbers in TH H T U.

4) Subtract the bottom from the top.

5) Keep subtracting with the rest of the columns.

6) If the number on the top is smaller than the one underneath, exchange from the column on the left.

7) Do the inverse operation to check you are write.
