Maths

Year 2- The Year 2's are working on dividing. This week they will be grouping objects and numbers to divide.

Year 1 - This week the year 1's are ordering groups of objects and numbers from biggest to smallest and vice versa.

The whole of KS1 is continuing with Numbersense. They are working on number fact fluency and making and breaking numbers. They have been getting super speedy at this and it has already helped them in their maths lessons.

We encourage all children to use doodle maths regularly at home as it is a great resource to practice using their mathematical knowledge while earning stars. The school now gives out DoodleMaths awards every Friday!
