Year 2s work on simple additions with column maths.

During Numeracy lessons, Mrs Mathieson has been showing her students that there are two ways to add up two-digit numbers.

At the beginning of the year, the girls mastered how to add one-digit and two-digit numbers together by using the partitioning method. Now, they are beginning to add up a couple of two-digit numbers with column maths.

Getting into the habit of writing the bigger number on top and the smaller directly below it, they’ve been working on sums such as 25 + 32, adding the tens and units one column at a time.
