This week in Maths we have been thinking about some different strategies to help us with our number fluency to twenty. We have thought about how to use part-part-whole to regroup the same number in different ways, for example 10+2=12 and 11+1=12. We enjoyed showing off all the different ways!
Most recently, we have begun to use a ‘think 10‘ strategy to add two single digit numbers. It is a strategy that challenges us to use our calculating skills.
Take a look below at a worked example of this method:
How to help at home
- Practise number bonds with your children. They are crucial to further learning ahead! You could try the online game at Top Marks – https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button
- Can your child show you how to use the think 10 strategy?
- We will be moving onto think 10 for subtraction soon. Give your child some subtraction problems within twenty to get their brains warmed up for next week!
