We are learning to read words where the letter 's' makes a 'z' sound.

You might practise reading the following words:

We are developing our understanding of addition.

If you have any board games at home such as snakes and ladders. You can practise rolling the dice and a moving on. Talk about how the number gets bigger when we add. 

Talk time

Talk about where the Queen lives. Have you ever been to London or have any of your family been to London? Talk about what it is like.
