Arithmetic this morning is all about Fact Families. Fact families are inter-related addition and subtraction facts. Please answer the following questions and let me know how you get on in the comments!
Today’s Arithmetic Challenge – answer as many questions as you can in 3 minutes. Today’s questions require your number bond knowledge to 10 and 20. You could watch the number pairs video first to recap:

Once you click on Reading Eggspress you will see this screen –
Your screen may show that you have some assignments to complete – these are books that I have set from the library.

Let me know what books you find and what you enjoy in the comments below or send a picture to my email address – firstname.lastname@example.org
