Maths

In Maths we will begin the year focusing on place value. We will look closely at the specific value of each digit in two digit numbers and how understanding this allows us to order, estimate and solve problems. We will also be practising counting in 2s, 3s, 5s and 10s. 

 

After this we will move on to learning how to add and subtract. We will be learning how to solve problems like the ones below: 

*3 one digit numbers: 3 + 4 + 4 = 11         9 - 2 - 3 

*a 2 digit number and a 1 digit numbers: 23 + 6 = 29

*two, 2 digit numbers: 12 + 23 = 35          32 - 24 = 8

*a 2 digit number and a tens number: 23 + 20 = 43.       43 - 30 = 13

 

We will learn how to solve these in a range of methods which include: 

*using counters

*dienes blocks

*bar method

*numicon

*empty numbers. 

 

If you would like to learn the methods that we are teaching children in school. Please come and ask I am happy to show you.
