Autumn 1:

  • This half term we will be learning about Place Value and Addition and Subtraction.
  • Place Value: The children we be learning about tens and ones and the value of each digit in a number. It is important that the children have a good understanding of this, as they will use this learning in other Maths topics throughout the year.
  • Children will learn to identify the tens and ones in a number, how to combine tens and ones to make a number and use vocabulary such as greater than and less than to  compare numbers.
  • Addition and Subtraction: The children will build on their knowledge of the previous topic to begin adding and subtracting bigger value numbers.
  • The children will be shown two methods to show their working out: denies and number lines.
