Topic

Welcome back everyone and Happy New Year to you all! We hope you had a lovely, relaxing holiday, it has been great to see the children back this week, they have had so much to tell us. We have had lots of fun this week introducing our new topic – ‘Castles and Dragons’. We discussed what we already know about ‘castles and dragons’ and what we want to learn about. We have designed and made our very own castles, (thank you to everyone that brought empty boxes and resources in for us). Here are some photographs of our models.

Maths

In maths this week we have been looking at adding single digit numbers to make over 10 using ten frames. We have continued with our number bonds quiz which we do every Thursday. Please try and support your child at home by giving them some number bonds questions, like the ones we send home with their homework. Thank you for continued support.

Thank you for continued support.
