Addition - Early Experiences
Pupils are given the opportunity to use developing mathematical ideas and methods to solve practical problems in a real or role-play context. For example,
- During snack time, asking ‘If I give out one more apple, how many is that?’
- Through continual provision such as play in the sand and water area, home corner, construction area and shop.
- Addition vocabulary includes; and, plus, equals, makes, altogether, add, one more than, what comes next? …and if we put one more?
Develop and support understanding through images such as:
Adding 4 numbers
Interpret situations as addition calculations and explain reasoning. For example:
Y1- An apple cost 3p and an orange cost 5p. How much have we spent altogether?
Y2- Sally has 14 marbles more than Jake. Jake has 6 marbles. How many did Sally have?
Y3- There are 127 children in the infants and 245 children in the juniors. How many children altogether?
Addition vocabulary includes; add, more, plus, make, total, sum, altogether, how many more to make? How much more is…? Addition, ten more…
How much more is…than…?
