In Maths, we will be focusing on place value for the next 3 weeks. This week we will be recapping how many tens are in each number.We will be checking that we remember how to count in 10s and 100s. We will look at how moving the place of digits changes their value, for example using the digits 2, 3, and 1 we can make 231, 132, 321, etc We will be doing some investigations and using 0 as a place holder. We will also continue working on our times tables. Please help your child at home to learn these so they can recall them quickly. They need to learn their 2s, 5s and 10s first. We have been using flash cards and using the Maths frame muliplication check online to help us. ( See Useful information link)
In English we are reading the book 'Stone age boy.' This links to our topic. We will be writing descriptions based on what the boy sees when he wakes up in the cave. We will be using adjectives and expanded noun phrases. We will also be looking at how we can use paragraphs in our writing.
