- we have been writing our own alliterative sentences, based on the sentences in ‘Ellsworth’s Electric Ears’.


- we have been writing addition number sentences and noticing how they can be written in different ways - ie 6+2=8, 2+6=8, 8=6+2, 8=2+6




Enjoy your half term break! We will see you at 8:40 on Monday 28th October.

- read and share your child’s reading book and other books that you may have at home.


- create some natural artwork using leaves, sticks, pinecones etc or leaf/bark rubbings with paper and crayons.


- choose a number and see how many different addition number sentences you can write or say.
