This week we have been mentally doubling two digit numbers. Your child has been given a sheet which explains the method we have used in school. The aim of the activity is to eventually be able to efficiently double numbers mentally. Please encourage your child to explain their methods to you as they calculate the answers. They can use the example of partitioning to record their working, or they can find another way to record what they have done.
Please read regularly with your child and continue to return the record book to school on Wednesday for us to monitor what your child is reading.
In ICT the children researched different animals from the rainforest on the following website:
Please encourage your child to read about other animals on this site which they didn’t get chance to look at. I was very impressed with how well the children could access the information on the site.
We have now covered words ending in le, el, il, and al. Please help your child to remember which ending is needed for each word.
