Word problems

Word problems

In Maths we have moved onto word problems. You need to use your reading and maths skills to answer these.

Read the question carefully! Write a number sentence and work out the answer.

  • There are 24 ducks in the castle moat, if 30 more ducks swims along, how many ducks are there altogether?
  • A baby dragon has 135 sharp teeth, he grows 24 more. How many teeth does he have altogether?
  • The King has 171 shiny crowns, the Queen gives him 25 more, how many does he have altogether?

Challenge: Can you write your own word problem? Can any anyone work out the answer?

This week we have been looking at a new book. Today in our classes we read the story and made up some actions to hep us remember the words. Tomorrow we will be acting out the story and later in the week we will move onto planning and writing our own story, inspired by this book.
