Key learning in writing, with scanned sample(s)

Key Maths skills (with scanned samples):

Mathematics development involves providing children with opportunities to practise and improve their skills in counting numbers, calculating simple addition and subtraction problems, and to describe shapes, spaces, and measures.

ELG Numbers: Children count reliably with numbers from one to 20, place them in order and say which number is one more or one less than a given number. Using quantities and objects, they add and subtract two single-digit numbers and count on or back to find the answer. They solve problems, including doubling, halving and sharing.

ELG Shape, space and measures: Children use everyday language to talk about size, weight, capacity, position, distance, time and money to compare quantities and objects and to solve problems. They recognise, create and describe patterns. They explore characteristics of everyday objects and shapes and use mathematical language to describe them.

Recommended reading books for the year group:

Any other specific year-group information?

  • Children should be read to every day for at least fifteen minutes
  • Phonics homework is given every Monday and must be returned on a Friday
  • Encourage children’s passion to learn by going on number, shape and letter hunts
  • Focus children selected every week, with follow up meetings the week after
  • Make writing fun! Encourage your child to practise writing in a range of different mediums. For example, chalk, shaving foam, paint, flour, paintbrushes and water etc.
