In maths we have been working hard learning to use numberlines and practising our number sentences. We have been practising both our adding and taking away using numberlines.Β 

adding numberline

numberline +1

Using the numberline below can you work out the answers to the number sentences below?Β 

1 + 1 =

3 + 1 =

4 + 2 =

6 + 3 =

3 – 1 =

4 – 2 =

7 – 1 =


Now can you make up some number sentences of your own and answer them using the numberline? If you write them down and bring them into school there might be a prize for you!Β

Tweety the singing chick has joined our class; here is a video of him celebrating Easter with his friend Bunny. Can you write a super sentence about Tweety? Work that shows super effort will be celebrated!

On Wednesday the whole school (apart from Yr4 due to swimming lesson commitments) will be having a Maths Open Morning. We have lots of fun activities planned and would love to see as many Penguin adults there as possible πŸ™‚Β 

Have a wonderful weekend full of exploring, reading, writing, sleeping, eating, singing, dancing, playing, talking, homework and of course don’t forget to comment on the blog!
