Welcome back. Hope you all had a lovely half term.

This week in numeracy we have been learning about shape and number sequences and sorting shapes and numbers into different categories. For your homework this week you will be completing a pattern or number sequence. There are 2 difficulty levels (option 2 being the harder one). Choose the level you want to complete or you can do both if you wish. There are also shape sequencing challenges or number sequencing challenges.

Next week we will be doing work on fractions so revision on our work on doubling and halving will help your child (Twinkl has lots of free resources on this i.e doubling ladybirds). Alternatively, you can access the doubling homework from a few weeks back if you scroll down
