What we've been doing in Ennis:
 
W/e 29th September 2017:

In Ennis, we have been ordering numbers to 100.

We know that sometimes, we need to look at the tens and then sometimes we need to look at the ones number.

We are also finding out about 2-digit numbers. We will be exploring how many tens and ones are needed to make a number. 

We will be using this website - you may wish to visit it with your child over the weekend or during the coming weeks.

In Ennis, we have been counting backwards and forwards. The children who can already do this confidently have been creating their own number patterns and subtraction or addition sentences to show their working. 

This is a great song for counting backwards and the children all enjoyed singing it.
