Counting – reading 1 digit numbers

Learn its –  3 + 3 = 6 and 4 + 4 = 8 and 5 + 5 = 10

It’s Nothing New – doubling 1 digit numbers

Calculations – understand the concept of adding


Our topic for the first weeks of this term is Scotland. This week we will watch and listen to some more Katie Morag stories. Last week we started dancing to some Scottish music and we will continue this week. We will also listen to and learn some Scottish words.
