Learning and caring together, building a firm foundation for the future

It's all about add!

This week we have been learning all about the + sign.  We have discovered new vocabulary and the fact that adding two amounts together can be done in any order!

During our learning, we learnt the word 'synonyms' which means words that mean the same thing.  We applied this to the + sign and discovered the following vocabulary:

We have continued to use our part part whole diagrams to visibly see two amounts being added together to make a whole. 

We have also been forming number equations to go with our part part whole diagrams and remembering that addition can be done in any order as long as the answer next to the equals is the largest amount.

We've enjoyed applying our learning this week and extending our vocabulary use.  We're looking forward to carrying on with addition by counting on next week!
