In numeracy this week we were doubling and halving. We partitioned the numbers into hundreds, tens and ones first and then we doubled each digit to find the answer. Once we were experts at this we then had a go at halving different numbers. To help us check if our answers were right we knew our answers needed to be bigger when we doubled and smaller when we were halving.
In literacy we have been reading, reading and reading some more! We have also been spending lots of time practising spelling high frequency words, and using digraphs and trigraphs in words.
As part of our topic work we carried out an investigation. We built foil boats of different sizes and counted how many coins were needed for the boats to sink. Our predictions where right!
