Welcome back to school after a lovely Easter break. The start of Term 2 will entail lots of maths fun for Class Two. We are going to learn about the place value of numbers. This will involve grouping single objects into 10 and groups of 10 into 100. We will learn that the digit 1 has a different value depending on where it is placed; for instance, the digit 1 is worth one hundred times more when it is in 109 as opposed to 901. We will be collecting acorns, pebbles and autumn leaves to use in our place value Main Lesson.

In our practice sessions, we will be working on a short drama production of one chapter from The King of Ireland’s Son, which we plan to perform in assembly later in the term. The children are very excited about this.
