Dear parents/carers,



During the week 4th- 8th January, we will be completing  the following activities.:


Wynyard class

Green group maths- multiplying and dividing by 10 and 100.

Purple maths group- finding factors of numbers and looking at prime numbers.

Red maths group- Adding and subtracting 1 and 10 from numbers up to 100.


If you search Education City there will be some games and activities for your child to play and to watch.  TopMarks is also a free site that you can search on for games related to the objectives above.


In English and Guided reading lessons we will be recapping Chapters 1-4 of Good Night Mr Tom (there are readings of this on YouTube) and reading chapter 5.  We are focusing on character descriptions and will begin to write a character description of William Beech.
