Today in Literacy we linked it to our Science, which is materials , but in Literacy we were learning about adjectives.We found out that an adjective is a describing word. We described many materials: pom poms, paper towels, soil and pasta. They were soft, fluffy, hard, spiky and big. We now have to wait to see if our onions grow in these materials? Which one do you think it will grow in?
Today in maths we have been learning to add two numbers together. We each got given a different number from 1-10 and went down into the forest.

How would you add to numbers together?
