Yesterday you were practising adding 2-digit numbers using two of the strategies we have been using in school.

Today we are going to look at using an empty number line to work out subtracting tens from a 2-digit number. I am going to use an empty number line to work out 92-30.



I have started with my number on the RIGHT hand side of the number line. 30 is 3 x 10 so I have subtracted by 10 each time to leave me with 62.

In your jotter, use an empty number line to complete the following:


Can you work it out another way? Use an empty number line to show another way this can be worked out.



Yesterday you practised adding 10s to decade numbers and other 2-digit numbers. Today we are going to add   2-digit numbers together. This example shows the sum 21 + 13.


In your jotter, complete the following:


Ask someone at home to check your answers.



Today we are going to work on sequencing off-decade numbers. On Monday you were sequencing decade numbers. You looked at the first number to put the numerals in order from smallest to largest. You can use the same method for off- decade numbers.

For example the first numeral in 16 is 1 and the first numeral in 36 is 3. Therefore if were to put them in order from smallest to largest , 16 would go first, then 36. (REMEMBER that 1 sits in the tens column and its value is 10 and the value of 3 in the tens column is 30)

Put these in order from smallest to largest. Write them in your jotter in the correct sequence.  You can use your number square from your pack to help you.

16   36  26  6

64  34  54  44

39  59  49  69

59  79  69  89

25  5   35  15

12  2  22   32

Ask someone at home to check your sequencing.



Building resilience has never been so important in this difficult time. Have a look at the School News page on the school website to revisit strategy 2 – Respect Yourself.
