Best work week 9 term 1

This week I think my best piece of work is my maths word problems because I worked hard and its fun. This took me all week so please don't judge me about it. The hardest thing I found was trying to add these numbers in my head. Next time I think I will write them down in my maths book so it is easier for me to work them out. OK here is the finished work!
