Please keep up with practising the half termly KIRFS so far number bonds to 20, the two times table and halves and doubles to 20 have been sent home. Here is a great website to help practice these https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button
Our focus this year is to learn the 2, 3, 5 and 10 times table and if you could practise these at home that would be great. We have just learnt the 3 times table too and have been using some great YouTube videos by Percy Parker to help us. You might want to take a look at these at home to help with practising these times tables.
