Remember (10.11.17)

This week in English we have been learning about Guy Fawkes and the gunpowder plot. We wrote some instructions about how to use a sparkler safely using imperative verbs ('bossy' verbs). We thought carefully about the structure of our writing, remembering to use a title and numbered bullet points. 
We also wrote an acrostic poem based on sparklers. 
In Maths we continued looking at addition and subtraction. We used known number bonds to support us to add and subtract. In Maths we also learnt how to exchange a stick of ten for ten ones in our jottings if we had a sum which required this exchange e.g. 23 - 17 = as in their sum there are only 3 ones in the number 23 by we need to subtract 7 ones when taking 17.
In Topic we learnt about Remembrance Day and why it is held. We made our own remembrance poppy and created a wreath for our classroom window. On Friday we held a two minute silence at school.
