Learning outcomes

# Title
1 Pupils combine two or more parts to make a whole
2 Pupils explain that addends can be represented in any order. This is called the commutative law
3 Pupils explain that the = sign can be used to show that the whole and the sum of the parts are equal (1)
4 Pupils explain that the = sign can be used to show that the whole and the sum of the parts are equal (2)
5 Pupils add parts to find the value of the whole and write the equation
6 Pupils find the missing addend in an equation
7 Pupils explain how even and odd numbers can be partitioned
8 Pupils make addition and subtraction stories and write equations to match
9 Pupils represent ‘first, then, now’ stories with addition equations (1)
10 Pupils represent ‘first, then, now’ stories with addition equations (2)
11 Pupils represent ‘first, then, now’ stories with subtraction equations (1)
12 Pupils represent ‘first, then, now’ stories with subtraction equations (2)
13 Pupils represent different types of stories with subtraction calculations
14 Pupils make addition and subtraction stories, writing equations to match
15 Pupils work out the missing part of an addition story and equation if the other two parts are known
16 Pupils work out the missing part of a subtraction story and equation if the other two parts are known
17 Pupils explain that addition and subtraction are inverse operations (1)
18 Pupils explain that addition and subtraction are inverse operations (2)
19 Pupils use additive structures to think about addition and subtraction equations in different ways
