This week we have been working on doubling numbers and noticing the patterns that the answers make – such as two odd numbers make an even number. We have also begun to work out answers to near doubles ( ‘next door neighbour’ numbers) using cubes and numberlines to help us.We have written stories in the style of Chris Wormell ( our visiting author) and had great fun personalising our own stories including ourselves as the main character ie ‘Joseph and the Night Monster’!  Both classes have enjoyed making natural material pictures in our Forest School lessons and they really worked well in teams to make an recognisable end product – so different to the beginning of the year!
