Numeracy – Addition and Subtraction – Fact Families – Year 2

In Year 2 this week, children have started to further develop the adding and subtracting skills gained in Year 1 and apply this to fact families. The children drew two simple 10 frames (A rectangle consisting of 10 squares) and used red and blue counters to creat a whole number i.e. 12 red counters + 8 blue counters = 20 counters in total.

The children then wrote fact families for the numbers they created.

12 red counters + 8 blue counters = 20 counters in total can be shown as…

12  +  8  =  20

8  +  12 = 20

20  – 12  =  8

20  – 8 = 12
