We have been working really hard in class, especially in Maths this week. We have practiced adding a 1 digit number (1-9) to a 2 digit number (e.g. 12) and have found out how much quicker and easier it is to add when you put the largest number first and count on the smaller number. This makes adding in every day situations (such as when you go shopping) far more efficient. We have practiced adding in a variety of ways - mentally, using our fingers, with a number grid, with cubes, Numicon or with a number line.
The children have done so well...ask them so they can show you how great their math skills are.
