We are taking part in Steps to Summit and our mountain is called 'Denali'. We take part in our daily activity and record it to see how much of the mountain we have climbed. We have also looked at what our own 'Denali' is and thought of our goals that we would like to achieve by the end of the year. You have received a letter about Steps to Summit with your child's log in and password where you can upload any distance walked at home on to the system so it records it as a total.

Maths

We are recapping addition and subtraction to help with perimeter and focusing on multiplication and division to help us with our conversion of measurements. 

A man called Richard Brown has published for Parents and their children a series of Arithmetic Workbooks for Reception, Years 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6; as well as a Four Operations Workbook to enable all learners to access, understand and become fluent in arithmetic mental strategies and written methods. Every book uses the Concrete, Pictorial, Abstract approach to ensure the needs of all learners are met.
