Autumn Term 2018
Welcome back Year 1/2.
I hope that you have all had a fantastic half term and are ready to get back into learning. We have a busy half term planned and I am excited to start the Christmas production J
See the castle ahead? Get ready to invade its mighty walls! Meet Rapunzel who lives in a tall, tall tower. Let’s build a brand new one….who’s the tallest? Can you measure it?
Then dig deep, deep down making burrows and tunnels, just like the animals that live underground.
What’s that? I can hear little hooves going trip, trap, trip, trap, over the rickety bridge. Watch out for the angry troll underneath…He likes to gobble up little boys and girls! Make sure your bridge is sturdy enough to take the weight and get us safety to the other side.
This term in maths we will be:
- Learning about place value
- Addition and subtractions
- Number bonds
