News flash! – Look at the warning poster – HAS ANYONE SEEN THIS CREATURE?   


LO: To recall knowledge of an aspect of character description within a narrative.  


LO: To effectively use the skills of planning.   


Look at the warning poster and generate ideas on where you could have seen The Iron Man.  Your task today is to produce ideas for the plot of your story. List ideas and think about possible endings. 


You need to think about and add some suitable descriptive language.  Finally, you are to plan for the cold task. 


To begin this lesson, look at the ‘In Focus’ task and think about how you could add 8 to 236.

Method 1 (Slide 6) is a bridging process using the expanded column method. It will help you to see the regrouping process and understand that the column method essentially adds by regrouping.

Method 2 (Slide 9) is the standard column method. You can use Base 10 materials as well as number bonds alongside the column method to make the method explicit. You will then compare the similarities between methods 1 and 2.

Method 3 (Slide 12) uses knowledge of number bonds to make the next 10 and then add the remainder of the ones. It is important to go through all the three methods so that you get an understanding of the question and numbers.

During Guided Practice, you will use number cards to form the addition statements.

Lesson 3: How do digital devices help us?

In this lesson, you will apply your learning from lessons 1 and 2 by using programs in conjunction with inputs and outputs on a digital device. You will create two pieces of work with the same focus, using digital devices to create one piece of work, and non-digital tools to create the other. You will then compare and contrast the two approaches.


You can follow the link below to understand how larger computer systems work and how devices and processes are connected. It will also help you to reflect on how computer systems can help us.
