This week children solved word problems and represented the information using a bar model. The children worked collaboratively with their peers, making links to their prior learning of place value, tens and ones.
The worked collaboratively to solve word problems using their mental strategies. They used concrete manipulatives and strips of coloured paper to solve different equations, using a bar model.
The children used their new learning to identify the known and unknown facts, and then labelled the bar model to help them find solutions to the problems.
