I hope you have all had a lovely break and a great first week back.
We have had a great week.
On Tuesday it was the ‘twosday’ so we had lots of fun exploring the number 2 and 22, and engaging with related challenges. We balanced for 22 seconds, we recorded how many of a task we could do in 22 seconds, we found things that always came in 2’s and had lots of laughter and fun in the process.
In numeracy we have continued exploring subtraction. We have used tens and units, counting on and back, breaking up the numbers and our knowledge of doubles to support us.
In maths we have began to explore money. We can identify coins, recognise prices from 1 to 50p, we can make a given amount with the correct coins and add money together.
