Finding the difference.

Please connect to Google Classrooms for a 15 minute Meet to talk you through your learning today.

Today we will be looking to find the difference between two numbers. How much greater or less they are from each other.

I have shown a number of different ways we can represent what we know to help us to picture what we know and what we need to find.

Looking at the blue and red bars above, we can see the parts that are the same about each one and also how the blue bar is different (it is longer). By taking away what is the same in both numbers, we can find this bit that is different, what we can the difference.

We may also use the more efficient strategies that we learned last week to speed up the process and make us more accurate by grouping ten and the ones left over.

Choose the strategy you are most comfortable with to find the difference between these numbers. We will need to take away the part that is the same in each number to find the part that is different, the difference.

 What is the difference between…? 1. 8 and 6 2. 15 and 5 3. 2 and 17 4. 18 and 13 5. 14 and 16 6. 7 and 15

Bossy verbs.

Please connect to Google Classrooms for a 15 minute Meet to talk you through your learning today.

Last week, we learned that a verb tells us what is happening, what someone or something is doing.

Today we will be looking at bossy verbs. They usually give you a command or instruction and are short and direct.

• E.g. Line up for assembly.
• Turn left at the traffic lights.
• Mix the flour and eggs together.

What do you notice? Where do bossy verbs go in the sentence?

When we use bossy verbs in a sentence, they are short and straight to the point and we cut any extra words out. For example:

• Please very carefully lift the lid of the box.
• Lift the lid of the box.
• Gently remove the pie from the oven.
• Remove the pie from the oven.
• When you have time, check to see if the paint is dry.
• Check to see if the paint is dry.

Little Miss Bossy’s sentences are too long!  They don’t sound bossy anymore!  Can you help Little Miss Bossy cut out words to turn them into sentences with bossy verbs?  Remember: bossy verbs and sentences sound like commands and instructions.

1. Please could you come over and fold the paper in half?

2. Could you carefully drive to the hotel?

3. Please pour the milk into the bowl.

4. When you are ready, line up at the door.

6. Gently remove the jelly from the mould.

7. If you want to, cut along the dotted line.

8. When you have time, add the icing to the cake.

9. Please close the door after you.

10. I think you should turn right at the traffic lights, don’t you?

Can you write a set of bossy sentences to instruct someone on how to build a snowman?
