During the first term we will be developing our knowledge and understanding of number bonds to 10 and 20 before developing and understanding on missing numbers. We will also be focusing on and developing an understanding of place value and the value of digits within a number. 

Our mental maths skills will focus on addition and subtraction and will also continue to focus on number bonds to 10, to ensure that these number facts become fully embedded. Please continue to work on number bonds to 10 at home with your child as these number facts are embedded across all of our learning.


During our second term, we are going to develop our understanding and fluency of numbers to 50. We will also be looking at developing our mental arithemetic using snappymaths. These mental starters will help the children to develop their number addition and subtraction techniques by doing it quickly and precisely. To develop this further, you can help by working on counting in 2s, 5s and 10s forwards and backwards from 0 or any number.
