This week in Maths we have been practicing adding by counting on. We helped Handa from our story count all of the fruit in 2 different baskets.
Can you have a go at adding by counting on at home? You could use cards, dice or a random number generator on the internet to choose numbers to add.
Once you have 2 numbers count each number out. You could use things you find in your home to help you like buttons, counters, beads or raisins.
Then put the biggest number in your head and use your finger to point and count on the next number. Don’t forget to record your number sentences.
7 + 4 =
As a challenge you may want to try adding 3 numbers together.
Don’t forget mymaths and numbots is also available for you to use.
