Spring 2

We are moving on to addition and subtraction.  Please continue to help your child learn their number bonds to 10 and use these as a part, part whole model.


Online Practice


Year 1 have all been set up on Numbots, there are links to these sites below.


If you can not find your login details for Numbots, then please email Mrs Price.


Please log in and explore these sites see what the children enjoy and can do already.


Top Marks can be accessed without a login.


In the coming weeks some of the activities on the home learning web may be to use specific parts of these sites.

Offline Practice


For maths work you do on paper, there are some squared pages you can print to work on if you would like to. You could also work in a notebook you have at home to write some number sentences and draw pictures to show what is happening in them.


In year 1, we should be able to use numbers unto 20 and the following signs:

Add + Take Away - Equals = (Equals means what is on each side is worth the same amount)

Greater Than    > (This mean what is on the left is worth more than what is on the right)

Less Than        < (This mean what is on the left is worth less than what is on the right)


e.g.     12 + 5 = 17              15 = 10 + 5              15 - 7 = 8              12 < 19

                                       20 > 4 + 4              6 + 6 = 10 + 2

For all of these it is important the children can use resources or picture to show what the number sentences mean. By doing this fluently it allows them to access the deeper understanding shown by some of the later examples.
