Look out for the celebration assembly and have a lovely weekend!


Rapid recap:  

This week we have been working hard on our number bonds to 10. Knowing these helps us add up to 10 quickly and easily. But it can also help us find number bonds to 20 and even to 100! 

Number bonds to 20 – just add 10 to your number bonds to 10! 

0+20 = 20 

1+19 = 20 

2+18 = 20... 

Super challenge – can you find number bonds to 100? Just add in tens instead of ones: 

We know that  

1 + 9 = 10 so  

10 + 90 = 100 

We know that  

3+7=10 so 

30 + 70 = 100 

We also need to practise number bonds to make any given number. Remember the best way to find all the different ways to make a number is to start from 0... 
How many number bonds make 5? 

0 + 5 = 5 

1 + __ = 5 

2 + __ = 5  

Challenge yourself to find the missing number bonds on the sheet Missing-Number-Bonds-Challenges-Activity-Sheets. Do as many as you want!  



English   Can I perform a poem? or Can I publish a poem? 

Watch this video that gives great advice about how to perform your poem. 

If performing is not your thing, then please publish your poem. Yesterday you should have finished editing and revising it, today I would like you to rewrite your whole poem on some beautiful paper or card. Use your best handwriting and make sure you space the poem out as described earlier in the week (pace verses, keep sentences fairly short). Alternatively, you could type up your poem on a computer and decorate it with pictures. 

Please see Scarlett Je's beautifully hand written poems attached below. 



Read Write Inc. 

All videos are now being released at 9:30am and will be available for 24 hours only.
