]]>Great news: new on-screen activities for years 1 to 3.

A crucial part of achieving success in maths is that teachers give children sufficient time and practice in order to have a deep understanding of the maths they are doing. What better way to help with this than on-screen activities which children can practice as much as they need.

Our latest resources for addition and subtraction for years 1 to 3 provide just this support.

Each short, sharp, on-screen activity concentrates on just one skill. Help may be given in the form of pictures, bar models, number lines, part whole models or base 10 blocks. It allows teachers/parents to choose the most suitable

Best of all, the activities provide a clear answer sheet which can be printed (or printed to pdf to save) and shows the answers the child has made and the time taken. Great for short term assessment.

The activities covered for each year group are as follows:

Year 1 Addition

]]>The post Maths Mastery: Add and Subtract appeared first on URBrainy.

]]>Many schools are now following a maths mastery approach to teaching which involves teaching topics in longer blocks to ensure that children have a firm understanding before moving on. For the next five weeks addition and subtraction takes centre stage in the Year 2 mastery block planning. Starting with numbers up to a total of 20, children will be expected to understand the relationship between addition and subtraction and identify related facts.

Mental skills are vital when adding a single digit to a 2-digit number and subtracting a single digit from a 2-digit number. This will continue when working with larger numbers as children gain a range of strategies to work out answers.

Towards the end of the block children will also be introduced to the column method of addition, leading to an exchange when there are more than nine ones. In a similar way subtraction using columns will be introduced where children use their knowledge that one ten is the same as ten ones.

A great deal of progress is expected here, especially in a relatively short time in the first term of the school year. Addition and subtraction are not considered as a block again during the year but it is essential to provide plenty of opportunities to use both in other areas, such as measurement and problem solving.

Maths Mastery: Add and Subtract Year 3

We have just collated an excellent selection of resources for the second block of the Autumn Term for Year 3 Mastery resources. The numbers to add and subtract get larger in Year 3, starting with adding whole hundreds. Mental strategies are still the best method when adding or subtracting ones or tens to/from hundreds as it is usually the quickest and most efficient method. Bar models can be very helpful with this.

The standard written method is consolidated, usually with easier numbers, but children will need to decide the best method to use when adding or subtracting.

Children should be encouraged to check their answers by using a different method so that any possible errors are not repeated; for example use subtraction to check the answer to an addition question.

This is a 5 week block. As well as the resources in the Mastery category there are a great many more in our Year 3 Addition and Subtraction categories.

]]>We have just added a superb collection of worksheets to our addition and subtraction categories for Years 1, 2 and 3.

Year 1 subtraction includes investigative activities such as finding as many different calculations as possible from given numbers.

In Year 2 we have concentrated on bar modelling and number lines to help with adding and subtracting a single digit to/from a 2-digit number. Bar models can be extremely effective in showing visually the maths that needs to be done and number lines are great for helping children to count on and back to complete simple calculations.

We especially like our most recent addition pages for Year 3, finding the greatest and smallest numbers from three digit cards and then finding the difference. We also have new worksheets on counting back in tens, and our Brainwhizz pages encourage fast mental recall of facts to add and subtract whole hundreds.

]]>If you are following a maths mastery programme we now have a superb range of material which we are sure you will find useful to supplement work done in school or to help at home. The first block of four weeks covers number and place value.

When first entering Year 1 children need to build on the skills and knowledge learned in Early Years to ensure that they are ready to make the next important steps, so we begin with something they should be familiar with: sorting into groups. Whilst we have plenty of examples the best way to do this is practically, sorting counters, fruit etc and asking how the objects have been sorted. The items sorted can be matched: are there enough saucers for the cups?

Children will develop their counting by counting forwards and backwards to and from 10 for which number lines are great. One more than and one less than are introduced as well as simple ordering of small numbers.

We also look at the idea of seeing numbers as positional, using first, second, third etc.

This work on number continues for the first four weeks.

If you are looking for more, don’t forget that we have much, much more in our usual Number and Place Value category.

We now have a superb range of material which we are sure you will find useful if you are looking for Year 2 maths mastery ideas to supplement work done in school or to help at home. The first block of three weeks covers number and place value.

Children will be expected to build on their knowledge of number to count, read and write up to 100. Place value charts and bar models are an excellent way to help with this, especially with partitioning numbers.

Number lines are also really useful to help place numbers.

Comparing numbers is an important aspect of this block, along with using language such as bigger than/smaller than and the > and < signs.

Once counting in ones has been firmly established children will be asked to count in fives and tens.

Go to Year 2: Maths Mastery Support: Autumn Term: Block 1: Number and Place Value

Year 3 Maths Mastery Support: Autumn Term: Block 1 Number and Place Value

We have selected a small number of resources to supplement the work done in school or to help at home for those using a blocked maths mastery programme.

Building on the work done in Year 2 children will understand what 100 is and count in multiples of 100 up to 1000. They should also understand that a 3-digit number is made up of 100s, 10s and 1s and read and write 3-digit numbers. Place value grids and an abacus are great ways to help with this.

Number lines are still really useful, especially when putting numbers in order and estimating.

Children will move on to finding 10 or 100 more or less than a number and they will also compare 3-digit numbers and order them from smallest to largest.

Being able to confidently count in fives will help with counting on and back in fifties.

This work on number continues for the first three weeks.
