This week we would have been exploring addition in our Maths lessons.
In Year 2 we learn to:
- Solve problems with addition (using concrete objects, pictorial representations, mental and written methods).
- Recall and use addition facts to 20 fluently, and derive and use related facts up to 100.
- Show that addition of two numbers can be done in any order (commutative).
- Recognise and use the inverse relationship between addition and subtraction and use this to check calculations and solve missing number problems.
Today can you explore addition?
We know that when we add, our amount gets larger.
- Have a think about all the vocabulary that is linked to addition.
- Think about when we use addition in school and out of school.
- What jobs need addition skills?
- Count all of the windows in your house and all of the doors. Can you add these amounts together? Can you double that amount?
Challenge: What other things could you count and add at home? Can you double or halve amounts?
