"Small enough to care, Big enough to inspire"

Reception

We have learnt that the symbol '+' gives us the instruction 'get ready to get some more' this means that we have to put more cups onto the maths table. Please watch the video below to see Paige solving an addition calculation using the cups. Her enthusiasm for maths is just wonderful!

We have learnt that symbol '-' gives us the instruction 'get ready to takeaway' this means that we have too many cups on the maths table. Please watch the video below to see Charlotte, Jack and Katie show you how to solve addition and subtraction calculations using the maths cups.

We learnt that it was still possible to solve an addition and subtraction calculation even when there are no real cups available. We learnt that when we see the '+' sign we have to draw more cups but when we see the '-' sign we have to cross some out because we have too many cups. Please watch the video below to see how Lucy uses jottings instead of cups to help her.
