Using a ruler

Using a ruler, measure objects around your house to see how long or short they are.

What unit do we use when measuring?

Can you write your measurements down?

Remember to start your measuring at the 0cm on the ruler (some rulers may start at the end)

Can you write some sentences comparing your objects?  For example; the pencil is longer than the rubber.

Word problems

When working through word problems you need to look at what information you know and underline it so you remember. If you need you can draw dots to help you, use a number line or write the number sentence.

Here is an example;

I have 5 sweets and I give one to my friend Sally. How many do I have left?

So you know I start with 5 and I give 1 away so I am subtracting. The number sentence would look like 5-1= and the answer would be 4.

Addition and subtraction

Place value

Number bonds to 20

In year 1 children should know their number bonds to 10 by heart.

0+10= 10, 1+9=10, 2+8=10, 3+7=10, 4+6=10, 5+5=10, 6+4=10, 7+3=10, 8+2=10, 9+1=10, 10+0=10

Children also need to use these facts to recognise number bonds to 20. The number bonds help children with addition and subtraction.

Write number bonds on to pieces of paper and cut them up children have to match the numbers together. Keep reciting number bonds together.

0+20= 20, 11+9=20, 12+8=20, 13+7=20, 14+6=20, 15+5=20, 16+4=20, 17+3=20, 18+2=20, 19+1=20, 20+0=20

Now link this to subtraction. For example; what is 20-7= children should know that 7 and 13 make 20 so 20 – 7 equals 13.

100 square addition and subtraction

Using the 100 square splat ask children to add and subtract different numbers. For example; 89-4=, 45+5= etc
