More worded problems

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

Today we will continue to solve worded subtraction problems, hoping to gain more independence when answering these types of questions. Our online lesson will be more interactive where we discuss the information from each question and suggest efficient strategies to help solve them.

We can make 14 and then take 6 ones away. This is a perfectly effective way to solve this problem.

We could also work more efficiently to solve this by first trying to get to ten. As 14 is 10 + 4, we can take the 4 away first to remove the second tens frame and leave just ten (14- 4 = 10) . The remaining part of 2 can be taken away from ten using our knowledge of number pairs to ten (10 - 2 = 8).

So 14 - 6 = 8

Task 1:




Task 2:

Molly has subtracted the same number from 10 and then 20. What do you notice?

Explore to see if this pattern continues for when you subtract 2 other numbers from 10 and then 20.

Friendship in Jesus

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

What do you think is happening in this picture?

Who might these people be?

What are the people standing on?

Would you like to be in this picture?

Are the people on the boat happy/scared/calm?


Here is the story form the Bible: Jesus Walks on Water

Jesus made the followers get into a boat. He told them to go to the other side of the lake. He said he would come later. Jesus said goodbye to the people and went up into the hills by himself to pray. It was late, and he was there alone. By this time the boat was already a long way from shore and was having trouble because of the waves.

In the middle of the night, Jesus’ followers were still in the boat. Jesus came to them. He was walking on the water. When they saw him walking on the water, it scared them. “It’s a ghost!” they said, screaming in fear.

But Jesus quickly spoke to them. He said, “Don’t worry! It’s me! Don’t be afraid.”

 Peter said, “If that is really you, tell me to come to you on the water.”

Jesus beckoned said, “Come, Peter.”

Then Peter left the boat and walked on the water to Jesus. But while Peter was walking on the water, he saw the wind and the waves. He was afraid and began sinking into the water. He shouted, “Lord, save me!”

Jesus caught Peter with his hand. He said, “You didn't believe in me to keep you safe. Why did you doubt me?”

After Peter and Jesus were in the boat, the wind stopped. Then the followers in the boat celebrated Jesus and said, “You really are the Son of God.”


Imagine you are Peter.

How would it feel to walk on water?

How special would that friend be who helped you?

Would you want to stay friends with Jesus?

Would you:

  • be proud to be Jesus' friend?
  • be frightened by Jesus' power?
  • believe in Jesus?


Task 1:

Would you stick by a friend like Jesus?

Think of 3 reasons why.

Record a video of you answering this question and upload it to a Facebook message/ClassDojo portfolios or story or write them down in your blue writing book.
