A tower which can be laminated and used as a great starter or lesson within KS1/Lower key stage. Children are required to get down the timer by mentally adding or using resources.

'How did you know?' type questions. Enjoy!

Subitising below 10 and to 20

Addition using subitising. Powerpoint and associated activities. Activity could be edited so the children have to record their own number sentence and show using the 10 frame or children could be given a sum and have to show this using the 10 frame. This could be used within the Early Years below 10 and in KS1 to 20. Add comments if this is useful to you and I will create similar resources :)
