The Snowman, Full Version HD

Watch The Snowman and talk about the events. Which part do you like best? Is there any part your don't like?



This week we will be consolidating the learning we have been doing this term. Today practise being able to find one more than a given number to 10. Use objects to show how you would find one more. Say the STEM sentence x is 1 more than x e.g. 3 is 1 less than 2.



Have a go at learning another song that we will be singing as part of the carols this week. Can you perform them to your family?
