HELP! Year 3 interview lesson written methods of addition and subtraction.

Discussion in 'Primary' started by slteach18, Apr 22, 2012.

  1. Hi there! I am currently studying for an Early Years PGCE and I have got an interview on Monday. They have asked me to teach a 30 minute lesson to year three on written methods of addition and subtraction. Being an early years specialist I have never taught above year two and feel very anxious! Any ideas would be amazing!!!

    Thanks in advance, S

  3. In year 3, unless they have a very able cohort, I'd be focusing on using a numberline to support addition. I don't usually mix addition and subtraction in one lesson although I would bring in subtraction in the plenary to reinforce that it's the opposite and lay the groundwork for the next lesson. I'm fairly sure that the LA pupils will still need practical, non-written methods but these can be backed up with written number sentences. Do you have any ideas we can comment on?
