At the beginning of the story of The Three Billy Goats Fluff, the Troll was upset with all the noise but in the end he was pleased with his gifts. Think of some questions you could ask the Troll about how he was feeling throughout the story.
If you are writing sentences remember to use capital letters and question marks in this work.
Today we will be looking at a new symbol we use in Maths. This symbol is the x symbol. Have a look at this website from BBC bitesize the video will help us to understand the x symbol better.
When making groups I used 8 counters and made 4 equal groups with 2 in each group. 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 = 8
I counted in 2s to find the answer quickly. This repeated addition sentence is the same as 4 lots of 2. We can write this using the multiplication symbol (x) as 4 x 2 = 8.
Think about how is 6 + 6 + 6 the same as 3 × 6? How is it different?
Using the x symbol is very similar to adding the groups together like we did in yesterday's lesson.
Watch this video for help with the activity below. Multiplication using the x symbol
Within English we have started to learn about the Billy Goats Gruff. Today, you will be able to make a stage with a landscape drawing. A landscape drawing is a drawing of a place in the world. You will also create a puppet set to perform the Billy goats Gruff to your Family. Before you start you will need to ask an adult for help to cut out parts for you.
You will need:
Optional items: cotton wall balls and coloured paper.
Now you have created your own puppets and stage, you may want to change the story or create extra characters to include into your own story.
Well done everyone, great work today! Enjoy the rest of your day. Can you think of something kind and helpful that you could do for someone?
See you tomorrow xx
