Remember, To find the starting number, we are adding the number taken away and the number left to find out the big number that we started with. 


Try with these questions. 






We have been thinking about new starts. 


We have looked at New Year and how we celebrate this.  


We have also looked at asking for forgiveness and what this means to us. 

In particular, we have looked at the Jewish celebrations of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. 


However, a new start isn't just about asking for forgiveness.  It is also about looking forward to the things that the new year can bring.  Excitement, activities, new starts, a chance to make a fresh start. 


What do you hope for in a new year? 

Looking forward to Year 2:

  • What do you hope will happen?  
  • What are you looking forward to? 
  • What would you like to do better? 


Write some sentences / a picture / both to tell me about what you are looking forward to in the new year at school.
