The following videos demonstrate the strategies our children will learn in relation to addition. The children are given opportunities to apply these strategies in their work as simple calculations and also as part of problem solving activities. It is very important that children learn their number bonds and facts by heart as this has a really helps children to add accurately. 

In addition the children will – 
  • Read, write and interpret mathematical statements involving the addition symbol (+) and equals (=).
  • Represent number bonds within 20 and beyond.
  • Solve one step problems (problems with one part) that involve addition, including missing number problems. 
  • Add numbers mentally including a three digit number and ones, a three digit number and tens and a three digit number and hundreds.
  • Add numbers with up-to three digits, using formal written methods.
  • Use inverse operations to check answers. 
  • Solve problems, including missing number problems, using number facts, place value and more complex addition methods. 
  • Add whole numbers with more than 4 digits (including decimals) using a formal written method.
  • Solve addition multi-step problems in contexts, deciding which operations and methods to use and why.
