Fun with numicon

In maths the children enjoyed learning about number by using numicon. We looked at ordering numbers and even extended our learning to find one more then a number to 10. We found this a bit tricky but are looking forward to learning more in maths throughout year 1.

All the children will go home with a number line to 20 today which shows how to make the numbers using numicon.

A great first week!

Hello all,

Just to say we have thoroughly enjoyed a fantastic first week back and the children have settled beautifully well!

They have bought home with them an orange book which has their homework in. They are expected to complete two pieces, one maths (this week it is number formation on squared paper) and one topic (they choose just one box from the sheet at the front to complete each week, they can be done in any order).

They also have a reading book. We expect every child to read at least 5 times a week and have their reading record signed by an adult. 

We look forward to seeing homework next week and to see how much reading you’ve done.
