In our Maths lessons this week we are exploring different methods to add numbers together. Our lesson today was quite tricky as we were adding larger numbers but we tried to be resourceful just like Helpful Hen and used the resources to help us.
We used our 100 squares to help us as we know that when we add ten to a number, we can make one jump down on our 100 square. We used our knowledge of place value to help us when adding 30 to a number (three jumps down), 40 to a number (four jumps down) and so on.
By the end of our Maths lesson, we were adding two large numbers using our 100 square.
