The children have come back with smiles and have been working so hard this week on counting on and back on a number line and making links to addition and subtraction. We have also been writing out our numbers to 20 and beyond and making sure they are all formed correctly. Most importantly we have been trying to encourage a greater level of independence in their work… getting on with simple short tasks on one’s own is a useful skill in Year 1! You can help at home by doing the same!
We have also been talking a lot about healthy eating, writing about what we have for breakfast, lunch and dinner, talking about exercise and counting how many glasses of water we drink a day. You will happy to know that all the children do understand the importance of keeping healthy!
