So this week we have been applying our understanding of multiplication to solve a range of problems! Although we initially struggled with multiplying 3×2 digit numbers we persevered and demonstrated some amazing resilience to overcome the challenge.

Here’s a short video which explains how to solve 3 x 2 digit multiplication problems. Remember, when solving these problems you MUST write down a 0 in the units column on the second row, and be careful with your carrying – don’t miss any! If you’re struggling watch this video and it will remind you of the method, if you’re still unsure come and ask me about it. This method is exactly the same when solving 4 x 2 digit numbers too! You just have 1 more number to multiply by 🙂

Throughout last week we were learning about the different sentence structures, what they look like, and why authors may vary their use within setting descriptions. On Friday Mr T tasked us with the challenge of creating an Explain Everything lesson on how to identify simple, compound and complex sentences. Take a look at the video to see what we got up to! 🙂

P.S. We all know that a sentence must have a capital letter AND full stop, even if some of us did forget our full stops on our videos! 😉

Tallant’s Takeaway! /

Wow, where have the last couple of weeks gone?! In Mr T’s maths class we have been hard at work solving addition and subtraction problems over the past two weeks. We’ve learnt everything from mental methods, written methods, adding/subtracting decimals and the importance of place value in all of this… You name it, we’ve learnt it! However, tomorrow unfortunately marks the end of ‘Tallant’s Take Away’!

What’s ‘Tallant’s Takeaway’ you ask? Well, once we had mastered our understanding of addition and subtraction we were tasked with the challenge of keeping Mr T’s failing Takeaway business afloat… We had to apply our understanding of addition and subtraction to take orders from customers and then use this information to calculate costs and change owed. To do this the whole class had to work as a team, we received orders through the ‘company’ iPad, then we had to locate the meals on the ‘Tallant’s Takeaway’ menu to check the prices, calculate the cost of the food and then see how much change the customer was owed. Although our approach wasn’t very efficient to begin with (much to the inconvenience of our extremely impatient customers) we got there in the end and ‘Tallant’s Takeaway’ lived to fight another day!

Unfortunately tomorrow marks the end of ‘Tallant’s Takeaway’ in maths. But one more challenge remains; we have been tasked with applying EVERYTHING we’ve learnt so far to solve worded problems… If we successfully solve this challenge we may actually save ‘Tallant’s Takeaway’ from bankruptcy… Only time will tell! Wish us luck!

Do we really mean hate? /


We discussed the word ‘hate’ and how we often say this when we mean ‘I don’t like.’
Do we really hate? Why should we be more tolerant of each other?
What are your opinions on hate and intolerance?

A woman who made a difference! /


A friend of Jo Cox said that it was upto “all of us – to carry on Jo’s work: to combat and guard against hatred, intolerance and injustice and to serve others with dignity and love. That is the best way we can remember Jo and all she stood for.” 

We will be looking at some of the things Jo did after the holidays. 

Please look at the Jo Cox Foundation website and see for yourself what an amazing lady she really was.
