In Maths we have been continuing looking at our addition and subtraction skills but we have been applying this to money. We have spent some time identifying the different coins and completing addition and subtraction calculations using money. This has been quite tricky but the children have worked really hard and have produced some wonderful work. We have also been learning how to add tens numbers to 1 and 2-digit numbers - the trick to remember is that when adding tens the units column doesn't change! Can you practise these at home: 

43 + 10 = 
13 + 10 = 
55 - 10 = 
32 - 10 = 
15 + ........ = 25


In English we have been continuing our work around the story 'Handa's Surprise' by Eileen Browne. The children have been thinking of some wonderful sentences to describe what happening in the story and have even written their own questions to ask Handa. 


This week in our topic lessons we have focused on Geography and have been learning about the continents and oceans of the world. The children worked together to complete a world map jigsaw and filled in all the names of the continents and oceans on a blank world map.
