For the last few weeks we have been adding numbers together mentally. This can include using practical equipment because we then need to use mental strategies to add the hundreds, tens and units together.
We have been using a range of equipment such as base 10, place value counters and part-whole models to really understand addition in different ways.
Over the next few weeks we will be moving onto column addition. One of our big questions to focus on is 'Is column method always the most appropriate way of solving an addition calculation?'.
