During Autumn 1, we will base their writing on 'The Day the Crayons Quit'. We will focus on retelling and writing the story. We will then use the book as a focus to complete lots of different activities.
The focus this term in Year 1 will be learning to count, read and write numbers to 10. We will also be using these skills represent numbers to 10 including recognising the value of each digit . In Year 2 will be learning to count, read and write numbers to 100. We will also be using these skills represent numbers to 100 including recognising the value of each digit . Additionally, we will also be applying our knowledge of place value to order and compare numbers using different representations. Throughout the term, we will also deepen our understanding of place through learning to solve real life practical problems that involve all of the above.
