Adding and taking away using a blank number line

The children have been learning to add and take away this term. 

We have been using concrete resources known as Base Ten.  The tens are in a long strip and the ones are individual cubes.  The children have started to draw these and then use them to help them add.  The tens are draw as a line and the ones are drawn as a dot.  Ask your children to show you.

The next step is to drawn a blank number line and add the tens and the ones together.

Ways to help at home

  • Read every day
  • Practise your spellings and common exception words
  • As you read spot the sounds in words, can you find digraphs (two letters that make one sound) and trigraphs (three letters that make one sound)?
  • Count in 2s, 5s and 10s forwards and backwards
  • Learn your number bonds for all numbers to 20 (e.g number bonds to 7 are 1+6, 2+5, 3+4, etc.)
  • Practise telling the time to the hour, quarter past, half past, quarter to and as an extra challenge to 5 minute intervals (five past, ten past etc.)
  • Practise letter formation using the correct pencil grip and develop fine motor skills (peg pressing, picking pasta shells/rice with tweezers)
