Maths: We will be adding and subtracting 1 and 2 digit numbers and solving missing number calculations e.g. 5 + ? = 9.  We will continue to recap reading and writing numbers in numerals and words and will also continue to practise counting in 2s, 5s and 10s. We will reinforce telling the time to the hour and half past.

Science: We will be learning about the weather as we observe shadows, rainfall, wind and temperature. We will look at and create our own weather forecasts. We will use what we've learnt about weather to compare different seasons.



Class 1's week ahead sheet will be sent home on Fridays with details of what we will be learning about the following week.

Please feel free to find me on the playground or arrange a meeting if you have any questions. 


Thank you for all your help and support,

Mrs Chick   Image result for chick
