This week, 114 has been learning about the connection between subtraction and addition. More specifically, friends of ten! The children have learned about all of the combinations of numbers that add to ten (e.g. 1+9, 2+8, 3+7, 4+6, etc). They have also learned that these combination of numbers allow them to solve subtraction equations much faster. The children have enjoyed using a range of resources including coloured counters, mini animal counters, their fingers, blocks and number lines.
We have also been building our confidence in skip counting. Many of us have mastered counting by 10s and 5s. Some of us have even been learning how to count by 2s and 3s!
