Today and tomorrow you will be using various different mental strategies for addition and subtraction of whole numbers. Click this link to watch a video of me explaining the different methods. 

Now you have these different strategies, try these different strategies to work out the questions attached. 

There are 3 levels of challenge. Make sure you show which method you have used for each question. 

Challenge 1 is the easiest and 3 is the most challenging. See if you can do all 3.

Check your answers after you have completed the work.


Please click here for today's video explaining the lesson. 

Discuss what the examples below tell us about Shackleton’s leadership. 

  1. Each crew member was assigned at least one dog to care for.’ 
  2. ‘She was named Endurance after Shackleton’s family mot By Endurance We Conquer.’ 
  3. During the recruitment process, Shackleton quizzed candidates on their practical skills, but also about more unusual things, like if they could sing well.’ 

Select information from pages (15, 16) and (20-24) to make inferences about Shackleton’s character and leadership. 

You can find where I have read and explained the pages here. 

Record these on an evidence chart, with quotes and inference about his character and leadership.
