They have used lots of skills this week including researching, making prototypes and evaluating their work and have developed a new skill of sewing a running stitch and a back stitch.

Well done class 9, you should all be very proud of yourselves. Here are some pictures of the children hard at work.

The next section of the project that you are to research is Aztec homes. Get as much information as you can about how the Aztecs lived and find the differences between the rich and the poor.

When you partition a number, remember to split it into its hundreds, tens and units,

eg, 345 this would be 300 + 40 + 5            3754 this would be 3000 + 700 + 50 + 4

 

Numbers less or greater than ~ remember, the wide opening always has the bigger number,

375 > 37 this means 375 is greater than 37.
