Reading is fundamental. In fact, it is one of the most important ingredients to becoming all that you can be. Reading develops your brain, provides a window into the world around you and gives you a greater chance to succeed.

Please support your child read by hearing them at least four times a week and completing their Reading Record. Thank you!


Maths Facts tested on: July 05 2017
Group 1

We will be testing the children on being able to double 2-digit numbers. The children know to partition the number into its tens and ones, to double each part and then put these doubled parts back together again.
For example:
