Show children a 1–100 number square. While they close their eyes, cover 27, 49, 60, 75, 81 and 99 with Post-its. Count along the track together, using the counting to help work out which numbers are hidden. Repeat, this time hiding 33, 37 and 39, and counting from 30 to 40 to check. Repeat, this time hiding numbers between 50 and 60.

Go to week 1 Thursday resource to use 100 bead line. (you can try and make the bead line practically with resources you have at home)

 Write ‘6’ on a tag and ask a child to hang it after the 6th bead on a 1–100 bead bar. Move 10 beads along as a group. How many beads now? Write 16 on a tag and hang after the 16th bead. Repeat until you reach 96. Count along the tags saying 6, 16, 26, … 96. How much were we adding on each time? Count back from 96 to 6. What are we subtracting each time?

Point to 8 on 1-100 square. How can we count in tens? Count on in 10s pointing to 8, 18, 28…98 as you do so. Ask a child to choose another number from the top row and count on in 10s and then back again.

Label 7 on the 0-100 beaded line. What is 10 more than this number? Mark on 17, and then draw a jump labelled +10 from 7 to 17. We don’t need to count on in ones to do this, we can count in 10s.

Continue adding 10 until you reach 97. Repeat, this time subtracting 10 from 93 until you reach 3.


 ___ is 10 more than ___

___ is 10 less than _____.

Ask children to suggest 2 numbers from the 100 square that would make these sentences true.

Use a 100-bead bar to show the addition and subtraction of one group of 10. Discuss lots of different examples.
