Our Lady Of Lourdes Catholic Primary School

We Learn with God as our Guide


Week beginning 9th September

Our first topic this year is place value. This week we will be exploring partitioning numbers into tens and ones using part-whole diagrams and place value charts. We will also be comparing and ordering numbers using the terms and symbols for less than, greater than and equal to. The children will use base ten materials, counters, 100 squares and number lines and tracks to support their learning.

The number challenges also start this week and I will be giving them their logins for Times Table Rockstars. Please encourage them to practise. There is no real secret to learning number bonds or times tables; it is just a case of doing lots of practise.
