English

This week in English we have been reading the traditional tale Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We have also been thinking about letters- why people send them, different types of letters and the features of letters. As part of your home learning you could share any letters you get and teach your child your home address which would be written at the top of a letter! Next week all children will be writing a letter independently.

Maths

In Mrs Prophets maths children have been learning how to count in multiples of 2, 5 and 10 using a range of resources. They have also been learning number bonds to 10- these are 2 numbers that add up to 10 e.g. 9+1=10, 8+2=10. As part of their home learning children could count 2ps, 5ps or 10ps.

In Mrs Ellis’s maths children have begun to think about addition and subtraction. We have recapped number bonds to 10, been learning number bonds to 20, learning how to check calculations (all children got to become the teacher and mark some of Mrs Ellis’s work!) and compare number sentences.
