Super subtraction

This week, we have been continuing to develop our subtraction skills. We have been exploring different strategies to use such as our fingers, using objects to take away, drawing and crossing out dots or even using our knowledge of addition facts.


There are 6 evil peas. Supertato squashes 3. How many are left?





Amazing Addition!

This week, we have practised our adding skills. We know that adding means making our numbers bigger. 

This is what an add or plus sign looks like:   

We have used tens frames to help us add two amounts together. We have to make each amount and count all of the counters to find our answer. 

Can you solve the questions below?


Doubling numbers to 10

This week, we are going to do something brand new! We are going to double numbers.  
To find a double of a number, we add the same number to itself.  

Puzzle will teach us a number to help us quickly remember our doubles to 10.


1+1 is 2 
2 + 2 is 4 
3 + 3 is 6  
let’s double some more! 
4 + 4 is 8 
5 + 5 is 10 
We are good at doubling, let’s double again!

 Miss Deighton would like to double her sweetie. What must she do? 
She must double 1!

Can you answer the question below?

All about 9!

This week, we will learn all about number 9. Whilst learning about 9, we will remember how we use tens frames and part-part-whole models to create different numbers. 

How many does this tens frame show? How do you know? 


I know it shows 9 because there is 1 missing. I know that 1 less than 10 is 9!
I know it shows 9 because I can see 5 and 4. I know that 5 + 4 = 9.
I know it shows 9 because I counted the ones. I can see 9 ones. 

Week commencing 28.11.22
