Learning Addition in Reception

We have been telling number stories in Reception. We began using apples to help us tell the stories.    

‘Before I had 6, then I added 3, now I have 9’

Then we used Numicon to find the total amount. We found out that the number always gets bigger when we are adding!


Then we started using cubes to help us solve our number stories.




We have also used number cards and cubes to help use generate and solve number stories.

And then we had a go at drawing what we found out.


We are really getting confident with our addition skills now, why not have a go at home using objects to help you!
