Think, believe, dream, dareā€¦


Over the next two weeks, we will be focusing on counting forwards and backwards from a given number in order to add and subtract. Counting on and counting back are far more efficient than some of the other methods of addition and subtraction, therefore children need to become familiar and confident with this strategy.


This week, children will learn how to count on from a given number in order to add. Children will use the first, then, now structure to identify what number they are counting on from, and how many they are counting on.
