A very good morning everyone! I hope you are having a good and calm week so far. Here is our morning song to get you stretching out and ready for your learning.
We will continue with using Friendly /Benchmark numbers to Add and Subtract. The idea is to make one of the numbers a Friendly number and then go on to take away or add in tens or hundreds . I hope we can all add and subtract tens easily and some of you can also subtract hundreds and even thousands. You must be able to count in tens,hundreds and thousands. Here are videos to help you.
Here are today’s sums
Addition 28 + 9 56 + 67 567 + 83
For Subtraction 96 – 48 make 48 a Friendly number
add 2 to both numbers
96 + 2 – 48 +2 now we have 98 – 50 ,
then we can count down in tens from 98, We need to count down 5 tens because 50 is 5 tens
which 88 , 78 , 68 , 58, 48 , so the answer 48
We can also use an open Number line which you can draw or even visualise it in your head! Watch this video
Now do these
67 – 9 74 – 45 708 – 506 ( you can use different strategies for this one
54 – 6 96 – 78 895 – 793 share/ talk about your strategies
There is still a few of you do the Assessment on Sumdog. I hope you are all able to do it today
