This week we have been learning about Guy Fawkes. We discussed why Guy Fawkes wasn’t happy with King James 1 and that he and his friends plotted to blow up the Houses of Parliament as well as the King and other leaders of England too. We discussed why we have a bonfire and fireworks and that this is because we are celebrating that Guy Fawkes’ plot failed.
In maths we have really been thinking about a number and how that number can be broken into two parts. Can you make a tower of 4, now break the tower into two parts, how many are in each part? Repeat breaking the tower into two different parts. Start with 4 (being the whole number), break it into two parts, the two parts of the whole (4) can be 1 and 3, 2 and 2, 0 and 4. Now make a tower using a different number and see how many different ways you can break it into two parts. Repeat.
