There is more treasure in books than in all the pirates loot on Treasure Island  -  Walt Disney.


Picture 1
Opening a book for the very first time still fills me with the same excitement and anticipation that it did as a child. Books enable children to discover new worlds, meet new people and learn about the past, but they also have the power to transform lives. By sparking growing imaginations, stimulating critical thinking and helping to develop empathy, reading gives children the very skills they need to succeed at school, at work and in life.’  Cressida Cowell, Author:  The Independent  Tuesday 4th December 2018


During Year 1, the children need to learn how to count to and across 100, forwards and backwards, beginning with 0 or 1, or any given number. They also need to count, read and write numbers to 100 in multiples of 2's, 5's and 10's.  This could be done anywhere, in the car, counting out the pegs, cutlery, socks or shoes, crayons or fruit and would be a real help to them in their Maths lessons.  Writing their numbers correctly and the right way round would also help!  

I know we're all busy, but a few minutes here and there can really make all the difference to your child's learning.

Thank you.  More to follow ...........
