My learning goals is to split numbers into tens and ones.

I have learned to use this strategy to answer my questions easier. E.G: 34+42=76 because 3+4=7 and 4+2=6 so it is 76  

My next step is to try more harder questions using this strategy.

Year 4 Sleepover

Something I enjoyed was playing foxes and hounds because in the first round we didn't get found.

One challenge I had was trying to find a good place to hide I achieved it because we worked together.

Something I learned  about myself was that I could work together with others and find a place to hide.

I surprised myself when we didn't get found.
