In Maths there are some very important skills which we will be practising all the time to get better and better at!
Counting to 100 and beyond - and being able to write those numbers correctly.
Counting in 2s, 3s, 5s, and 10s forwards and backwards
Recalling the 2x, 5x and 10x tables in both multiplication (e.g. 4x5=) and division (e.g. 30÷5 =) forms.
Know the place value of each digit in numbers up to 100 and compare numbers using < and >
recall and use addition and subtraction facts to 20 fluently, and derive and use related facts up to 100
add and subtract numbers using concrete objects, pictorial representations, and mentally, including:
a two-digit number and ones
a two-digit number and tens
two two-digit numbers
adding three one-digit numbers.
It is very important that we practise these skills regularly because we will be using them a lot over the year. The sooner we know them, the more confident we will be solving different problems.
Here's some helpful tips for learning these skills.
