Year 5 Addition and Subtraction

Date: 18th Jan 2015 @ 10:14am

I hope you have all had an enjoyable weekend.

This week we will be working on written and mental methods of addition and subtraction. I know many of you are keen to support children at home so I have added you tube clips of the main methods we will be using. (Some children will begin using slightly different methods. I will include paper copies of these in planners) There is also a game which children may enjoy playing at home which will help to improve their mental addition and subtraction skills.

To play the game children must make a calculation using uncrossed numbers. We will be playing this in class and I am sure the children would love an opportunity to beat their parents!
