Then, we explored the concept using different activities. The children used numicon and multi link to solve 2 digit by 1 digit addition and used part whole models to explore 3 by 1 digit addition.
On Thursday we developed our conceptual understanding of counting in steps. The children used lots of practical activities to explore the concept and then have since applied it to maths star challenges! I am so proud of them!
