Adding a 1 digit number to a teen number.

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

You will need your counting objects from yesterday and your two tens frames please.

We have spent some time this week making a group of ten and adding little ones more. We have been able to count on from ten to find which teen number we had. I'm very impressed that so many of you have spotted the pattern that happens when we add on to ten. See another example:

For our teen numbers, the 1 shows us we have a group of ten and the second number shows us how many ones we have left over.


Today we will be adding numbers on to some of the teen numbers we have been working with this week. To help us out, we will partition (break apart) our teen numbers in to its group of ten and the ones left over.

We can take the ones that we have just partitioned from the teen number and add them to the number we are adding on. What we will be left with is our group of ten and the combined group of ones. 

We know that we can easily add our ten and ones together to find the answer.

Task 1:

Find the total for these number sentences by partitioning the teen number. Add the ones left over to then add back on to the ten.

Task 2:

I have made a marvellous mistake in one of my number sentences. Find which one it is and use a part whole model to prove what the correct answer should be.

Capital letters for places

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

We have learned that we use capital letters for:

  • The start of a sentence
  • Somebody's name
  • Talking about ourselves using the word "I"
  • Days of the week

We also need to use capital letters for the names of places. Cities, towns, regions, countries and continents. Some examples of place names from our story "Emma Jane's areoplane" are below:

Your sentences have been so amazing, I am going to add the next box to our colourful grid, the question "where?" 

We will be using our new red where box to talk about places, remembering that those places will need capital letters.


Task 1:

I have made some colourful grids for you. I would like you to write down each sentence in your blue writing book in your best handwriting. Remember to use capital letters for names and places and keep them nice and tall.

Task 2:

Where would you travel to? How would you get there? Write one final sentence to tell me where you will travel to. Use your colourful grid as below to build up your sentence. Think carefully about where you need capital letters.

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

We are going to continue our unit of friendship today with a story.

The Bible teaches Christians a story about a man called Zacchaeus. Zacchaeus lived in a town called Jericho and his job was to collect money from the people of the town. However, Zacchaeus was greedy and always took more money than he needed to. Zacchaeus got very rich. The people of Jericho did not like this and nobody wanted to be his friend.


One day Jesus came to town. Zacchaeus wanted to see him but could see over the crowd. He climbed a tree to get a better view and Jesus noticed him. "Come down Zacchaeus because I will eat at your house tonight." The crowd were shocked. Zacchaeus was a greedy man and wasn't very nice to the people of Jericho. "Why would Jesus visit him?" they asked.


Jesus and Zacchaeus talked a lot that night and soon Zacchaeus realised that he had wronged the people of Jericho. He made a promise to give half of his money to the poor and to pay back all of the extra money he took from people four times over.


Task 1:

Take a quiet moment to think about the story. Discuss the following questions. There is no need to write down your answers.

Why was the crowd shocked that Jesus decided to visit Zacchaeus?

Why do you think Jesus chose to be a friend to Zacchaeus?

Was it an easy decision for Jesus to make to be Zacchaeus' friend?


Task 2:

Write down your answer to the following question:

Would you have been a friend to Zacchaeus? Why?
