Subtracting tens and ones.

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

Today we will be subtracting a two digit number away from another two digit number. This sounds crazy! What if I make a mistake when I'm taking 12 counters away? But we have been doing some wonderful work with grouping ten and the ones left over. By using this understanding, we can use some tricks to help us find the answer in a few simple steps.


Lets solve 18 - 12. We need to make 18 in our tens frame by making a group of ten and the 8 ones left over.


Task 1: 

Can you solve these three number sentence? Make the first number using objects on your tens frames. Think about the number you are taking away and partition it into its ten and ones. Take the ten away first. Then take away the ones from what is left over.


Task 2:

Lets solve 18 - 15 =. Danny and Tasmin have partitioned the 15 into 10 and 5. They are subtracting the two parts in different orders. Do they still get the same answer?

The Good Samaritan

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

We are learning the story of the Good Samaritan, as told by Jesus in one of the gospels of the New Testament. A traveller is beaten up and robbed, and left for dead along the road. A priest comes by, but deliberately avoids the man. A lawyer also comes by but he too avoids the injured. Finally, a Samaritan comes by, and he helps the injured man, in an act of mercy, compassion and friendship.

Watch the video story below:

Being neighbourly means that we show kindness and friendship to anyone that we meet. Just like the Good Samaritan, Christians believe that we should always help and be nice to each other.
