We have continued with the column subtraction method this week, including subtracting across zeros. We discussed how this relates to real life contexts, for example working out the change we would receive from a bill. Towards the end of the week we also started to look at two step problems and how we can work out what we are expected to do based on the language used within the question.
During our lessons this week we have focused on two SPAG elements: expanded noun phrases and fronted adverbial phrases. We discussed their importance in our writing and in relation to the end of Year 5 expectations. Yesterday, we watched a video click about how Bram Stoker got his inspiration from Whitby to write chapters 6, 7 and 8 of his book 'Dracula'. Together, we then created a paragraph for a setting in Whitby, which included two examples of expanded noun phrases and two examples of fronted adverbial phrases.
