Mathematics

Can I subtract 2-digit numbers by rounding to the nearest 10 and compensating?

Example: 26 - 9 = 17

26 - 10 = 16
16 + 1 = 17

76 - 19 =           46 - 18 = 

85 - 19 =           68 - 18 =

67 - 29 =           93 - 28 = 

74 - 29 =           72 - 28 =

What is compensating?

Everyone finds some numbers easier to work with than others.

You might find that adding or taking away 10 is easier than 9 or 11.

Compensation is a way of adding or taking away numbers you find easier.

You add or take away a bit too much or a bit too little, so then you have

to add or take away this too.

English

Can I demarcate sentences accurately using a capital letter and full stop?

Look at this picture of Tommy's bedroom. Make a list of things you can see. Can you up-level your ideas by including adjectives?

Now try and incorporate some of this description in to a sentence. Remember to include capital letters and full stops. 

There a bright, shining yellow starts on the light blue wallpaper.

Can I derive addition and subtraction facts using inverse operations? 

You can check an answer to an addition calculation by doing a subtraction. For example:

Can I write a story opening?

What would be said before Traction Man arrived?

Use the picture from the opening page and your descriptive sentences from earlier in the week to help you. 

Have a look at the example opposite if you're still not sure where to start. 

One dark and mysterious morning the sunlight began
to peep through Tommy's bedroom window. Tommy woke up grumpily, rubbing his tired blue eyes and stretching his arms above his head.
He looked around his wonderful bedroom which had shimmering, gold shooting stars on the light, sky blue wallpaper.
Tommy was not very good at keeping his bedroom tidy and his mum was always telling him to put his toys away.
When Tommy woke up, he noticed something strange on top of his warm, cosy, vertical striped duvet. It was a magnificent present wrapped in bright orange paper and tied up carefully with a glittery silver bow.
