1 hour per day

Lesson 1 – Add both ways

To warm your maths brains up – write down all of the number bonds to 20.

On the sheet provided children are to count the different objects and write the two addition calculations. Ensure your child understands that when writing and addition calculation, the numbers can be either way round to reach the same answer. EG 2 + 3 = 5 as does 3 + 2 = 5

On the worksheet provided, where printing is not possible calculations can be written out on lined or blank paper

Lesson 2 – Cloudy calculations

Write number bonds to 20 as a subtraction calculation EG 20 – 5 = 15, 20 – 4 = 16

On the worksheet provided children are to answer the calculations paying attention to the addition and subtraction symbols. Where needed use a number line/ruler or objects around the house to support counting.

Lesson 3 – Checking fish facts

Explain to children that inverse means the opposite so the inverse of addition is subtraction. Ensure children understand that we can use the inverse calculation to check that we have the correct answer.

Children are to count the fish and write out the addition calculation, they are then to write the inverse subtraction calculation underneath, Children should recognise that they are essentially writing the calculation backwards.

Lesson 4 – Take away or difference

Using the number line on the worksheet children are to start on the given number and make the stated number of jumps backwards because they are subtracting, Children then count the amount of jumps they made and write that as their answer.
