**Junior Infants**will be exploring the number 5 as part of their continued work on the strand unit*Analysis of Number, Numeration*. The activities suggested in November are still applicable now. And, don’t forget, the TRB has lots of suggestions for practical activities and stations using concrete materials.**Senior Infants**will spend most of January exploring exploring the number 8 as part of their continued work on the strand unit*Analysis of Number, Numeration*. This will extend to include combining and partitioning sets to 8. Similar to junior infants, the activities suggested in November are still applicable now as well as the practical activities and stations using concrete materials, that are suggested in the TRB.**First Classes**will extend their understanding of place value to numbers within 60, as well as developing mental strategies for addition and subtraction within 20. Of specific importance are the bonds of 10 and doubles, both of which are also given on the inside flap on the pupils’*At School Book*. Don’t forget also that Number Talks are particularly useful to encourage the development of mental calculation strategies**Second Classes**will be exploring money, symmetry, fractions and operations (addition and subtraction without renaming, including subtraction as deduction). Again, subtraction as deduction is also included as a strategy in Number Talks, as well as other useful mental calculation strategies.
