Block A - What makes a good friend?

We are using the text ‘Sir Charlie Stinky Socks and the tale of two treasures’ to inspire our writing during this block of learning.

  • Who is Sir Charlie?
  • What does he look like?

Reading

In reading, we are spending time enjoying reading books and discussing what we have read. We are focusing on prediction over the next few weeks. What a prediction is and how we can use it within our reading. Questions like the ones below will help you with this.

What do you think will happen in this story using the clues from the title page?

Has your prediction changed after reading the blurb?

What do we think will happen next?

What part of the story do you like best?

Did you expect ____________ to happen?

 

There are lots of stories available to listen to on you tube and other online sites.

Maths

In Maths, we will be learning about addition and subtraction. 

Now we have learnt all about Place Value this has now given us the first stepping stones to help us to add and subtract numbers. We will be adding and subtracting a 1-digit number from a 2-digit number, adding and subtracting a 2-digit number from another 2-digit number and also adding 3 1 digit numbers too! Remember to use your tens and ones to help you with these questions.
