Addition and subtraction will be our Numeracy topic for the next 4 weeks, continuing after the Easter break.

What will we be learning?

– focusing on mental strategies for addition and subtraction.

-number bonds to 10, 20, 100, 1000

-using empty number lines eg.

Missing addend sums 34 + __ = 50

Missing subtrahend sums 32 – __ = 11

Activities you could do at home:

Adding and subtracting money or prices when visiting the shop

First to 100 – use a dice and each side can be a one or a ten ( 6 or 60) take turns first to 100 wins. Can be played first to 0 using subtraction and starting at 100.

Telling the time – what time it is now? What time will it be in 40 minutes? What time was it 10 minutes ago?
