This week we are working on addition and subtraction. We are consolidating our knowledge of numbers within 10 and then next we will be moving beyond 10.
Today we will be adding and subtracting by counting on or back.
Work your way through this powerpoint and then have a go at today's work.
Now solve these by counting on or back. If you can do them in your head mentally then that's great as this is what we are aiming for by the end of year 1.
5 + 2 =
So put 5 in your head and count on 2.
5, 6, 7
So 5 + 2 = 7
7 - 3 =
So put 7 in your head and count back 3.
7, 6, 5, 4
So 7 - 3 = 4
