Our maths topic is:

Addition and Subtraction

Addition Edition

Download the game below to make adding fun!


You will need 2 dice for this game as well as different coloured counters per player or coloured pens / crayons.


If you don’t have 2 dice, why not make some? Alternatively, make 2 sets of number cards 1-6 and turn them over two at a time. You could write the digits or even draw spots to help you add them up.

Templates for these can also be downloaded below.


WALT add together


Download the PDF below and complete the questions.


WALT compare number bonds


These symbols are used in number sentences to compare them.

Remember we say the equal sign = is a balance. Whatever is on one side, the other side must be the same.


5 + 5 = 3 + 7

because the answer to both calculations are 10.


6 + 2 > 3 + 4

because 8 is greater than 7


2 + 5 < 9 + 1

because 7 is less than 10




WALT find number bonds to 10


Use the skills we learnt last week about part whole and working systematically to complete today's job.


WALT work systematically to find number bonds


If you do something systematically, you do it in order.


WALT find number bonds within 10




WALT use addition fact families


Addition fact families are the three numbers in a number sentence.

3, 4 and 7 are a fact family because:

3 + 4 = 7

4 + 3 = 7

7 = 3 + 4

7 = 4 + 3


Download the PPT and PDF to complete today's task.


WALT use the addition symbol


Find a dice for this activity or make your own number cards 0-10.



WALT use part whole model


The part whole model is a visual way to add and subtract numbers.

The parts add together to make the whole.

One part can also be subtracted from the whole to make the other part.


Look through the input PPT together then work through the Teach it and Twist it tasks.
