For the first part of the year we have been focussing on addition and subtraction strategies.Here are some examples for you to get an idea of how they work.

Knowing our basic facts to 10 is a very important skill because our number system uses 10 as the unit for counting. We need to know what the nearest 'ten'is and how to get there.

Numeracy Information for ParentsNumeracy covers number knowledge and the strategies pupils use when working with numbers. Strategies refers to the methods pupils use to solve problems, primarily in addition and subtraction at this age.

Here are some simple things you can do at home to help your child with their maths: - get them to count in 2's, 5's and 10's - practice their addition and subtraction basic facts instantly and out of order.- Read numbers beyond 100 and get them to tell you the number before and after eg 767 What number comes before? What number comes after?
