This term we are learning to add two groups of objects to find out how many altogether. As you are singing the nursery rhyme with your children, count how many items there are to encourage adding skills, e.g.


You could ask: 

How many sausages are in the pan?

How many sausages have popped?

How many sausages are there altogether?


For each number song you will have two "groups" - these could be frying pans, flying saucers, walls, etc. Use these resources to help your children practice adding by splitting the objects between the two groups. For example you might put 2 sausages in one pan and three in the other.


You could ask:

How many sausages in each pan? (you will need to guide them to understand that "each" means they need to count one group and then the other)

How many sausages altogether?


Model writing the sum out for them e.g. 2 + 3 = __


Ask if they can find the answer for you by counting all the sausages.
