Take a look at some of the great things we have been doing in school.

## Numberless Word Problems - October 2017

To help us towards achieving BB 13 in Maths, we worked in a group to talk about the important words in a word problem which didn’t have numbers. We discussed the meaning of the mathematical words and how they help us decide if need to add or subtract e.g. fewer, altogether, how many more?

We then solved the problems when Mrs. Shewan and Mrs. Douglas added numbers in, using the following method:

- Decided what we had to do in STEP 1 (add or subtract).
- Decided what we had to do in STEP 2 (add or subtract).
- Solved the problem showing workings out.
- Wrote what the ANSWER to the problem was.

## Antarctica Animation Creation - October 2017

As part of our Antarctica topic, we have been using I-Motion on the I-pads during computing.

First we made a penguin out of modelling material, then built a scene for our film. Next we recorded our penguin walking and finally we played our finished animation for others to see and peer-assess.
