Back in the autumn term the children wrote a non chronological report on the Ancient Egyptians. Today's challenge is to write a non chronological report on an exotic bird, like the Roly-Poly bird in The Twits.  You can use books or the internet to research and find out information to include in your report. There is also a list of features below that you can try to add to your work.

Hopefully the children will recall when we did instruction writing earlier in the term and therefore they have the challenge of writing instructions for a disgusting dinner for Mr Twit.  We can't wait to read their ideas!

Your children need to use the price list below to identify the cost of each item and add them together to find the totals.  Use the H T O column method to help them to add.

If you can, try to work out what the change will be by subtracting your total from the amount that you have paid.

The children have previously learnt how to make certain amounts of money by using a variety of coins and how to add two amounts together and how to find change. This week, we would like the children to complete a range of activities based on money. We will post a new task each day for the children.

 We encourage the children to use real money if available to aid their understanding. 

Below are some useful videos of how we teach column subtraction and multiplication by partitioning.
