We look forward to reading all your comments.
Calling all listeners. Visit the Bearwood radio blog site and find out what some year 6 pupils are debating. Please join in the discussion.
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!
We are making our model villages (castles) they look extremley superb. Everyone in our class has a job, its like making a real building! We’ve been learning about Castles such as: Concentric, Motten Baily, Bodiam castles and Celtic castles.
To make our castles we need; wood, cardboard, PVA glue, card and imagination.
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)
2.Always start with the units (right hand side)
3.Add the tens
4. Add the hundreds
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.
2453 – 337
1) Set the sum out with the largest number at the top.
2) Line up the numbers in TH H T U.
3) Start with the units (right hand side.)
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.
436 x 7
1) First, set out the sum.
2) X the units.
3) X the tens.
4) X the hundreds.
5) Add the answers together (start from right to left.)
590 / 7
1) Write the sum out correctly.
2) Do the calculations with brackets.
3) Take the number that has been X away.
4) Then do another X.
5) Subtract that number again (Until you can’t X again)
6) Add up the numbers in the brackets on the right hand side.
