Week not the most interesting of units - a2 - partitioning and counting one and we are looking at reading and writing numbers and paritioning numbers using cards in preceding lessons. For obs lesson want them to tackle the
They find missing numbers in calculations such as 37 = 30 + ?? + 2. bit as slightly more investigative than straightforward partitioning.

Wow Msz that year2maths.co.uk is a fantastic website. What is the website address for the mainsite which that it is presumably a section of?

thank you for those. come across the year 2 site and used the mad minutes before which my class love.
it's more what i can get them to do as independent activities - think i may have to make up some questions with missing numbers to fill in :0/
