Hello there, today we are going to practise writing the numbers 16- 20 as words. You may also want to complete the numeral worksheet to assist with this.

There is a short teaching video to help.smiley

It's 'World Book Day,' gang and we thought it would be fun for you to have a go at some themed maths. 

Your task is to calculate the additions using 2 digit and 1 digit numbers up to 30 to crack the World Book Day code.

You might find it useful to 'count on' using a number line or hundred square to help with this.

When you have calculated the answer, find the matching number and letter on the grid to spell out a 'World Book Day,'  question sentence.

You might like to create your own World Book Day sentence using additions and subtractions to crack a code.

There are also some Roald Dahl maths cards to challenge yourself and family with!


Today you are going to put your typing skills to the test to practise writing a sentence in WORD and changing the colour, font and size.

Don't worry if you don't have a device or  the WORD programme just try your best with what you have at home. Even if this means using a phone to practise typing.

There are different levels of challenge in the video depending on how confident you are. You might need a bit of grown up help today!

If you can't complete this lesson when please don't worry. Next week we will be back at school using our new chrome books and will have lots of practise there!
