Encourage your child to write all of the number facts up to 20 e.g. 3 + 17 = 20, 17 + 3 = 20. Can they use these to write the inverse e.g. 20 - 3 = 17
Give your child a number between 1 and 20 and ask them to think about how many ways they could make the number using addition.
Practise totalling amounts on this game then post the letter in the correct post box to show your answer.
Get your child to write one of the number bonds to or within 10 - e.g. 2 + 8 = 10 or 3 + 4 = 7. Can they use these facts to find out the addition facts up to 100? E.g. 20 + 80 = 100 and 30 + 40 = 70.
In Benjamin Zephaniah’s poem ‘Royal Tea’ he tells the reader that he paid £8.50 to visit Buckingham Palace. What coins could he have used to pay for his ticket? How many different ways can your child represent this amount, or other smaller/simpler amounts of money.
