Finding 10 more or less

In maths this week we have been finding 10 more or less than a given number using a magic number finder.  The number finder can reveal the number that is 10 more or less  when we use it with a 100 square.  We have had great discussions about the patterns we can see in the 100 square using our knowledge of tens and units.

Welcome back

Welcome back after what I hope was a fabulous chocolatey holiday.  Our new topic this term is Down at the bottom of the garden.  We will be looking at animals, plants and imaginary creatures that could live at the bottom of our gardens. 

One of our first jobs is to make a bug trap in our school garden. We will be exploring our catches next week and drawing and labelling our finds.
