Maths-tastic in KS1!
Take a look at how we learn maths in KS1!
In Year 1, the children have really grasped addition and solving missing number calculations using a number line. They even tried to balance two calculations where the equal sign was in the middle! Amazing progress was being made by all.
In Year 2, the children were looking at how they can use inverse operations to help them check their answers to calculations. They investigated the relationship between addition and subtraction in group and used this knowledge to solve ‘check it’ problems. They then moved on to explore missing number problems and were shown the bar method as this makes understanding the inverse MUCH easier!
