It's time to switch on your Maths brain!

Hey Robins! This morning we will be continuing to look at addition. We will be discussing what addition means and how we can use our resources to help us with questions! For this lesson you will need at least 8 practical resources, these can be anything from socks to pasta, to pencils! Whatever you have, you can use!yes


My video will talk a little bit about part-whole models and what they represent. It will also help us to picture addition in another way... log on and enjoy! See you in a minute Robins! smiley



Please find my teacher input video here!



Here are some top tips to summarise what was mentioned in the video! smiley


enlightenedChildren will be using the part-whole model (attached on the next page).

enlightenedChildren can recap how a part-whole model works using our song  ‘A part and a part make a whole, a part and a part make a whole, when I add a part to another part, my two parts make a whole’.

enlightenedChildren will need 8 resources for this lesson.

enlightenedChildren can create the parts or the wholes that are shown on the sheet.

enlightenedThey can then count how many there are altogether or how many are left (depending on the question) to find out their answer.

enlightenedThe whole will be at the top and the two parts and underneath.
