Currently, in maths...

In Maths we will practicing lots of basic skills such as number bonds, place value,  ordering and writing numbers.

Then we will be practicing our written methods for the four  calculations and using these skills to  solve word problems.

We will also be learning about shape and practicing our mental maths strategies every day.


. We will be continuing our learning of time and practising our times tables up to 12 x 12!
