Addition and subtraction

In Maths, we have been revising addition and subtraction and extending our skills in this area by working with increasingly larger numbers.

We have discussed the importance of place value when adding and subtracting, and have continued to build our knowledge of the column method for addition and subtraction. We have considered the real-life application of the skills that we are developing by looking at a range of word problems which involve addition and subtraction. Children have been growing in confidence in choosing which operation to use in order to solve different kinds of problems, and have started to use estimation to check there answers.

Here are some examples, from Eva and Archie, of the work that we have been doing.
