This week we had an amazing visit to Sundown! We just loved meeting Father Christmas and going on his magical sleigh ride. At school we have been using photos from our visit to write a recount of our day. In your homework, book please can you write a sentence about your favourite part of the day.
In maths we have been adding. We have practised adding 2 single digit numbers together using a range of practical objects. With your grown up can you practise adding 2 amounts together using objects around your house to help? You might even choose to write the number sentence in your homework book.
