L.O: To understand deeper questioning about a text
SC1: I can find evidence in a text
SC2: I can use evidence to support my answers
SC3: I can consider wider knowledge about the story to expand my answers
You will find todays text attached at the bottom of the page.
After reading today's text please answer these questions. If you struggle to read the text then ask for support from an adult and you can read this together.
Over the last few days you have been using the inverse operation to check addition and subtraction number problems. Today, we will be using the same skills to help solve missing number problems.
The process, when solving missing number problems, is very similar to the one we used when simply checking our answers. The key difference is that with a missing number problem you need to understand how a number sentence sentence is written as this will decide whether or not you will need to use the inverse.
For addition, you will always need to use the inverse to find a missing number. This is because the largest number goes at the end of the number sentence e.g.
________ + 123,455 = 456,222
266,322 + ________ = 323,452
For subtraction, however, the largest number goes at the start of the number sentence. If a the missing number is the first number then you will need to use the inverse to find the answer e.g.
________ - 145,234 = 105,650
To find this missing number (the largest number) you will need to use the inverse and add the two numbers we have e.g.
145,234 + 105,650 = ________
However, if it is the second number that is missing in a subtraction number sentence then we do not need to use the inverse operation we simply rearrange the subtraction number sentence e.g.
566,233 - ________ = 322,456
566,233 - 322,456 = ________
In this example you can see that the largest number is still at the start and it is still a subtraction.
For today's lesson there is a PowerPoint and a video to support your learning. There are questions and answers on the PowerPoint. For your extension today I want you to write, in your own words a set of instructions for finding a missing number. You will need to provide examples to support your explanation.
In today's English lesson you will be writing a conversation, between Julian and his friends, using direct speech. To help you create your conversation you may wish to read the text from this mornings lesson again.
In guided reading we learnt that the "war" is now over and the only person who now dislikes Jack and August is Julian.
When thinking about what to write you will need to consider and make notes about;
-how Julian felt when he found out that his friends would no longer support him in his battle against August and Jack?
-how would he respond when his friends Amos, Miles and Henry told him that they had helped protect August and Jack?
-when Julian responded to his friends, what would the tone of the conversation have been?
To help you with today's writing I have provided you with a video recap of how ot use direct speech and a PowerPoint which will recap the features of direct speech. There is also a word mat for words which you can use to replace the word "said".
On the very last slide of the powerpoint you will find a possible beginning to the conversation between the boys. You may choose to magpie ideas from this text or, of course, you may go in a completely different direction with your writing.
