The post Addition and Subtraction appeared first on URBrainy.

]]>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.

]]>Ideal for use with the ipad they also work just as well on PCs, providing clear, fun and precise challenges for children. Each game has the option to print the answers recorded, making them an excellent assessment tool for quickly identifying children who have misconceptions or have grasped the concepts and need to move on.

If you are a parent with a child in Year 1 these games are an invaluable reinforcement of key concepts and can be used for just a few minutes in the evening.

All the games are just as valuable for those children who are following the Maths Mastery block planning programmes.

Year 1 Maths Number and Place Value Games:

Each game concentrates on one precise skill or concept. There are 5 questions to answer, followed by a printable answer sheet.

Game 1: Counting to 10

Counting single objects up to 10.

Game 2: Counting two types of object up to 10

Count two objects with totals up to 10.

Game 3: Estimating on a number line

Estimating numbers on a 0 to 10 number line.

Game 4: Completing the number track

Fill in the missing number on the number track: counting in ones.

Game 5: 1 more than

Finding 1 more than using single digit numbers.

Game 6: 1 less than

Finding 1 less than numbers up to 10.

Game 7: Using <, > and = signs

Using the <, > and = symbols to compare two numbers

Game 8: Part-whole models

Find the missing numbers in the part-whole models.

]]>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.

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

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.

]]>A great emphasis is made in Year 1 on children being able to find one more and one less than a number. In our latest set of worksheets numbers are displayed in different ways; by spots on dice, in words and in numbers, and children are asked to show one more than or one less than in the above three ways.

Our latest sets of worksheets look at reasoning and problem solving with a small amount of money: just 10p. For the ‘10p to spend’ questions there are a number of different answers and children should be encouraged to find as many as possible.

]]>Here are some brand new worksheets we have written on part whole models. You may not have come across these before, they are designed to show children that numbers can be partitioned into parts.

For example:

a collection of birds is made up of

2 buy cheap ambien no prescription blue tits

3 robins

1 goldfinch

They add up to 6, so the whole number is 6 and the parts are 2, 3 and 1.

These are a great way of helping children with number bonds and well worth a look.

]]>Many of our categories contain a large number of resources and to make it easier to find exactly what you want we have started to arrange them into sub-categories. The first of these is Counting in Year 1 which has over 80 sets of worksheets. For example, if you are looking specifically for worksheets which use number lines they are all grouped together.

Year 1 Counting is now divided into sub-categories as shown buy ambien pills below:

1. Counting objects and matching to numbers

2. Number lines and tracks

3. Counting on and back in ones

4. Counting on and back in twos, threes, fives and tens.

5. Place value: tens and ones

6. Number grids and squares

7. Estimating and rounding

8. Other resources

Other categories in year 1 which now have sub-categories include Addition, Subtraction, Money and Reasoning. We hope you find this useful and would welcome any comments on this new structure.

]]>The post Year 1 Number: estimating using pictures appeared first on URBrainy.

]]>The new Year 1 Programme of Study for number is rather brief. The content is just:

• count to and across 100, forwards and backwards, beginning with 0 or 1, or from any given number

• count in multiples of twos, fives and tens

• count, read and write numbers to 100 in numerals;

• given a number, identify one more and one less

• read and write numbers from 1 to 20 in numerals and words.

• identify and represent numbers using objects and pictorial representations including the number line, and use the language of: equal to, more than, less than (fewer), most, least

That’s it, but of course there is much more to it than that. A skill which we often take for granted is to be able to glance at a group of objects and be able to judge approximately how many there are, without counting, however they are arranged. Young children do not have this skill and they need plenty of practice in order to develop it. Our latest sets of fun pictures are ideal for this and perfect for showing on a screen for children to make an estimate.
