Hi Year ones! This week we thought we would continue working through our alternative spellings, so following 'ai' last week, this week will be working on 'ee'.

How many different alternative spellings of 'ee' can you think of? Can you choose the right 'ee' to spell these words?

Which 'ee'?

Monday 27th April - Maths

This week the focus for our maths will be an introduction to multiplication.

We introduce multiplication by using practical apparatus. For example you could use fruit, counters, buttons, pairs of socks, pebbles etc.

We use the vocabulary - 'groups of' and 'lots of' before introducing 'times'.

For example 2 lots of 3 = 6

                     2 groups of 3 = 6
