We started learning about addition this week. We practised the simplest strategy of combining two groups and counting how many altogether and were beginning to use the vocabulary like 'altogether', 'total' as well as 'add' and 'plus'. We did this in lots of different fun ways, including numicon and playdough, bean bags and hoops, and using the 'adding machine'! See if you can continue this addition at home in lots of everyday contexts - e.g. if you have two shoes and add them to my two shoes, how many altogether?
