Weekly update for WB 13.11.17:

This week we are learning about:

Spellings:The sound /ay/ and /oy/

Maths: This week we will use take away to find the solution to a number problem. We will also investigate how addition and subtraction is linked by making number families such as:

3 + 2 = 5       5- 3 = 2

5 = 3 + 2       2 = 5 – 3

2 + 3 = 5       5 – 2 = 3

5 = 2 + 3       3 = 5 – 2


Topic/RE: We will be discussing what makes a good friend and how we can make sure we all get along and appreciate each other’s differences.
