There are money activities set on Mathletics.
As an extra - any work you can do around coin recognition and adding coins together would be great or talking about how much things are and how much change we would get when we pay for things. Many thanks.

19/11/2018 - Maths Homework
This week Year 1 and 2 will be learning about shape. There is a 2D worksheet and a 3D worksheet above, I will also print some copies for the homework tray in class.
Year 1 should complete the 2D sheet and Year 2 should complete the 3D sheet. Although, if Year 1 would like a challenge please do have a go at the 3D sheet and likewise Year 2 you may have a go at the 2D shape sheet if you are finding the 3D one a bit tricky. There are also lots of shape activities to explore on Mathletics.
We are writing stories in class based on The Snail and the Whale by Julia Donaldson.
I love Julia Donaldson's rhyming stories and when I was young I liked Shirley Hughes' books.
Do you have a favourite author? Who is it? Do you have a favourite book that they wrote? Have you read any other books by this author?
There are some addition activities set on Mathletics this week.
Half term homework - POETRY COMPETITION - Please see letter above. Children may write their poem in their homework books.
There will be some addition activities set on Mathletics this week. They will be assigned on Monday 15th.
Please rehearse your lines for our poem for the Harvest Festival on Monday. If your child has lost their lines I have put the poem as an attachment.
We are learning about numbers and are keen that children can count confidently forward and backwards. Year 1 are working up to 20 to start and Year 2 up to 100. Please count the stairs as you are walking up and down them. Count pennies or pieces of Lego into a pot and then count down as you take them out.
You may also have a go at Hit the Button - 2xtable
This term we have writing sentences that have capital letters, full stops and we must make sure they make sense! Please draw a picture of you and your family and tell me about them. Who is in your family? What do you like to do? It would be brilliant to see you writing in sentences, even with some help from someone at home. Due in by: 1/1/2018

Children will be set activities for homework and they will not be able to access anything else until they have completed this. If they can not complete this at home then I will ask them to do this during lunchtime at school. Once they have completed their homework activities they can games, which focus on each strand of maths that they are taught in school.
We are always delighted to welcome volunteers into school, if you would like to join us to help with reading, a club or creative curriculum then please do get in touch.
