Maths I am learning to find the difference by counting on. 

Last week we looked at subtracting by counting on. This is very similar. We are looking at the number difference between, or the gap between two numbers. We can talk about how much more or less one is by way of comparing the difference. We can do this by counting on. 

e.g. 8 – 5 = 

Looking at a number line; we start at 5 (the smaller number), we count on to 8, we see that we make 3 jumps. The difference between 8 and 5 is 3. 

8 – 5 = 3 

Follow the power point Finding the Difference then have a go at the Reasoning and problem solving and varied fluency activities.

Topic I know how to stay safe on the beach. 

Today create a poster about staying safe on the beach. Use a piece of paper or a page in your exercise book and divide it in to  4 sections. Have a bold title that says something like ‘Stay Safe on the Beach’ 

One section should detail everything you need to protect yourself from the sun. 

Next detail everything you should look out for on the beach (creatures, flags, lifeguards, weather etc) 

Then another section about the sea; what do you need to look out for? Which conditions are safe to swim or even paddle. 

Make it super colourful and please write a couple of sentences with each section explaining the safety notices. There are word cards attached for spelling tricky vocabulary. 

The fourth section needs to be blank for tomorrows learning about how humans impact on the beaches.
