Below are the independent and guided writing and reading tasks children will be completing in class that you can work on at home.
In adult-led writing, we will be working together to take on a real challenge... writing our own Easter stories! Children can choose to write about the story of Jesus or to plan their own Easter-themed story using the things they know about Easter. We will be supporting children to plan their own stories, thinking about the beginning, the middle and the end, before writing their very own books.
In Maths this week, we are continuing our thinking about number. We will be focusing on addition skills and revising this skill that we explored before Christmas. We will be talking about addition being "putting things together and finding the total" and on recording our number calculations using + and = signs.
Below is an Easter-themed addition pack that you can explore together to practise these skills:
