I have found it interesting how parents felt after helping run a numeracy night this week. I realise part of the biggest headache for families is not being able to help their child to solve maths the way maths is completed nowadays compared to when parents were at School. So I have attached a sample of how to do addition and subtraction equations using our strategies. I will attach a multiplication/division one next week.
Hope this is helpful!

In Term 2 Room 5 came up with a super idea to change the drain covers in our School so that the ducklings don't fall into the drains and die and also rubbish isn't able to be put into the drains anymore. We all made prototypes of how we would like to construct our drain covers. Below is our process of how we designed, made and fitted our drain covers onto two of our main drains. We will try to cover some more over the term.
