The children are continuing to develop their understanding of bar models. The children are all able to put the word problems into number sentences, however the next step is representing this number sentence in a bar model. The part/part/whole diagram is very similar to a bar model as it shows that 2 parts make a whole, use this to help reinforce how the bar model works.


The children need to find the missing number in the bar model where the '?' is.

Today we are going to be sending a message in a bottle home to tell our families all about what we found so far on the mysterious Island. You need to include detail about what happened when you arrived (the missing treasure chest), what happened in the Whomping wood and the Lost Lagoon. Don't forget to mention your new friends Peach and the Native American. Your message should include all our basic writing skills of capital letters, full stops and 'and', but I would also like you to include adjectives to add detail to your writing.



Dear Mum/Dad/Sister/Brother/Grandma...

You won't believe what has happened to us! We landed on a mysterious Island and found a map, we followed the map to find  the golden treasure chest but it was missing! We began to search the Island and had no luck. The first place we searched was the Whomping wood but we were hit by huge twisted branches and ran away. Then we went to the Lost Lagoon and dived into the deep glistening water. We did not find the treasure chest but met a lovely little starfish named Peach. She is joinin us on our search because she is very clever!

Hope you are all well at home!
