What will we be learning about in this half term?
We will be reading 'The Day the Crayons Quit' which is a brilliant book. We will be writing letters in the role of a crayon!
We will be continuing to develop our reading through our own individual reading books and taking part in guided reading sessions. We also have a class story which we read a the end of each day and have daily independent reading sessions. Please make sure your child reads their book every night as this is so important. They also need to bring their book into school every day as we use them as part of our daily reading sessions.
This half term we will be learning how to:
Use Place value and numberfacts to solve problems
Recognise the place value of each digit in a twio-digit number (tens, ones)

What can you do to improve your learning at home?
English: Learn your spellings each week, practice your handwriting, common exception words and contraction words.
Reading: Read your reading book every night to a grown up and ask them to sign your reading diary. Visit the library and choose books that you find interesting to read in your spare time.
Maths: Practice your times tables and number bonds to 100. Find halves, quarters and thirds of a number at home. You could also have a go at finding some weights on items of food in the kitchen!
