Maths - We found all of the number bonds of 5, 6 and 7. Can you find them all in order?

e.g. 0+5=5    1+4=5     2+3=5

Engish - We looked at plurals and how most of the time we just add 's' (like cats turns to cats) but when we see 'sh' 's' 'ch' 'x' or 'z' on the end of a word we add 'es' (like bush turns to bushes).

Can you change these into plurals?

fox,  dog,  bench,  map,  bus,  wish,  cup,  book,  clock,  six,  quiz

English - Nibbles the book monster nibbled some objects around our school. He nibbled: the benches, the trees, the windows, the boxes, the doors, the dishes, the books, the bushes and the walls. 

We wrote a diary pretending to be Nibbles saying what we had eaten. We looked at which plurals had 's' and which had 'es' and some of us even used adjectives.

e.g. Today I was cheeky. I ate the glass windows and the tall trees.

Maths - We found the number bonds of 8 and 9. Can you find them all?

PE - We were throwing and catching large balls (at home this can be done with cushions or teddies). We also practised our aiming at skittles (bottles) and targets.

English (Handwriting) - We have been learning how to form the letter 'r' correctly and have been writing words that have 'r' in. We used this to practise the phonics sounds: or, ar, er, ir, ur, ear, air and ure. Can you think of a words for each sound?

Maths - We played games to find the number bonds of 10. We are trying to become fluent with these ones and know them off by heart.
