week 1/11/16-4/11/16

Please check our blog every week, as we will be posting information about our learning and tasks to complete for home learning.


This week in literacy we are learning about traditional fairy tales, focussing on their structure and writing sentences using full stops correctly. In numeracy, we are finding the doubles of numbers to 10, adding 1-digit numbers, and learning what a half is. In topic, we are finding the answer to the challenge question: Is the weather always the same where we live?
