Information about polar bears:
This week we are working with numbers to 20 on addition. We will be focussing on being Slinky Linky Snakes by making links in maths. We will be using what we already know about numbers to 10 to help us solve number problems with numbers to 20.
We will be learning to:
- Add by counting on (in out head and using physical resources such as number line or counters)
- Add the ones together to help with adding larger numbers (e.g. I know 2 + 4 = 6 so 12 + 4 = 16)
- Use number bonds to 10 to help me find number bonds to 20 ( e.g. I know 5 + 5 = 10 so 15 + 5 = 20)
- Solve addition word problems
If you are self isolating or would like to see the sorts of questions your child is doing to further support their learning at home please use your Active Learn log in information where you have been allocated the textbook and practise book.
