Place Value in FS2
In Maths, in the last two weeks we have been working on out teen numbers. To ensure the children have a deeper understand of the numeral value we have used unifix cube, numicon and part whole model to model to understand the Tens and Ones. We have found this challenging but we have persevere and we are beginning to understand it a little bit more.
It would be very helpful if you could support your child with this aspect of learning. Allow them to handle coins and teach them recognition and value of them. Starting with small quantities up to five and moving on when they have grasped the concept. In practical activities they could play ‘shops’ or perhaps you could accompany them to the shop and support them to buy items.
FS2 Reading and Phonics workshop
A big thank you to all parents who attended the reading and phonics workshop!
So why is reading important?
Reading is vital for your child’s development as a reader, a speaker, a listener and a thinker. The more print children are exposed to, the more quickly they are likely to learn to read. Children whose parents frequently read with them in their first year of school are still showing the benefit when they are 15. Spending quality talking time with your child is also a significant factor in supporting their future reading attainment.
So how useful was it?
At the end 79% scored the workshop 10 out of 10; and 21% scored it, between 8 to 9 out of 10.
