Activity 2

Add pairs of 1-digit numbers with totals above 10


Alter two dice so that the numbers are from 4-9 or make two new ones and write your own numbers on them. You could use the 'Make  cube' template if you would like to have a go at making your own dice. You would also discover a most amazing fact if you chose that option (Clue ... the amazing fact is on the template worksheet!)

Roll each dice and add the two numbers together. Encourage your child to talk about how they worked it out e.g. “I put the biggest number in my head and counted on the smallest number using my fingers.”

Discuss different ways of adding two numbers together. How quickly can you find the total? How many different ways can you find?
