Magical Maths

*addition        *number bonds        *2d and 3d shapes  



Ask your child's teacher for ideas to support this at home.




    Getting Ready to Write



The children are practising how to hold their pencil correctly.

This is how we practise holding our pencil here at Leesland...



Try this little trick at home to help with pencil grip. Place a pom pom in your child's hand and get them to grip it with their two fingers - whilst holding their pencil!
