    Can someone please explain this to me? How do I 'teach it' if Im not 100 per cent on what it is myself?

    Im in year 1 (as the teacher... :( ) and I don't really know how to go about this and I cant ask at school.

    Hi love, This is my understanding .....to bridge through ten means that children are becoming more efficient in their methods .... you probably do it without thinking. So ....take for example 6 + 5 ....children will already know that 6+4 = 10 so they do this then add on the extra 1 to get their answer. We do it using 10 frames so they have the visual then move to number lines when they can see it.

    Hope this helps

    Thank you both very much. I didn't know that method was called 'bridging' I shall use the power point as its quite simple and child friendly.

    And if you have Numicon or Cuisenaire Rods it will become visually much more clear!
