Maths

Chapter 1 Numbers to 1000

This chapter covers numbers up to 1000 and focuses on the value of each digit: place value. Children will learn how to compose and decompose numbers, compare, order and look for patterns.

Chapter 2 Addition and Subtraction

This chapter covers addition and subtraction. The chapter starts off with simple addition before moving on to addition where renaming is required. Subtraction is also covered in a similar way where simple subtraction is mastered before moving to subtraction where renaming is required. Once children master addition and subtraction, they start to look at problem-solving questions and practice using bar models.

A book our children adored last year: Pugs of the Frozen North.

Author: Philip Reeve

Illustrator: Sarah McIntyre

When True Winter comes, once in a lifetime, teams on sledges pulled by animals take part in the Great Northern Race across the snow, of which there are fifty kinds, to the Snowfather’s palace at the top of the world. Cabin boy Shen, cast adrift from his ship with 66 pug dogs, meets Sika who is desperate to take part in the race. They join forces and exhilarating adventures ensue involving the Kraken, yetis and trolls, not to mention the other participants in the race.

This is Sarah McIntyre and Philip Reeve’s third collaboration and is the most powerful yet for its combination of excitement, humour and emotion.
