Challenge: There are 2 pirates and 4 treasure chests on an island. The pirates have 1 small boat to take the treasure to their ship. The boat can take 2 pirates or 1 pirate and 1 chest of treasure. How many trips do the pirates have to take to get all the treasure and both pirates onto the ship? You can present your answer to this problem in any way you wish!

Maths:

This week we have been learning about odd and even numbers. We learnt to put objects in pairs. If the objects go into pairs the number is even and if not the number is odd. We then learnt to look at the last digit in a number. If it ends in 0, 2, 4 , 6 or 8 then the number is even. If it ends in1, 3, 5, 7 or 9 then the number is odd.

English and Topic

This week in Topic we have started our Topic called 'A day in the life of'. For our entry point, we came in dressed up as what we want to be when we are older. In our writing, we wrote about the our chosen profession. We have also made puppets of a variety of professions.
