When we dived into the Lost Lagoon we can across a cute little starfish named Peach. She was very clever and kind, this made us think why don't we invite her along on our quest to find the treasure chest? The more brains we have, the more likely we are to find it. 


Today I would like you to write an invitation to Peach asking her to join our journey around the Island. I would like you to include the word 'because' to help persuade Peach to come with us. Make sure the children are spelling 'red words' correctly (words that can't be sounded out), using capital letters and full stops.



Dear Peach

I would like to invite you to join our crew to find the missing treasure chest. It would be good to have you with us because you are very clever and we need help.

Please meet us at 7 oclock at the Lost Lagoon

I hope you can come with us.

From Miss Cunningham 

p.s. We will make sure we feed you clams and oysters to keep you happy.


The children are now learning how to represent a number sentence (adding or subtracting) using a bar model. The top bar represents the total, then the 2 bars beneath represent the 2 numbers that are added together. Begin by reading the word problem then ask do I need to add or subtract (takeaway)? Build the number sentence together then put this into a bar model.


Question 3 and 4 requires the children to write the number sentence and then draw a bar model to represent the number sentence.
