Maths Calculation Videos
One of the key skills we want children to learn, starting from Early Years is to be able to subitise numbers.
Can your child say how many objects/counters/fingers there are without actually counting them? A best place to start would be to get your child to recognise how many fingers, you are holding up! As they begin to do this more confidently, children are doing addition and subtraction calculations without them knowing it. For example: when you hold up 8 fingers and children are able to say it is 8, they are then beginning their journey of also understanding
5 +3 =8,
3 +5 = 8,
8 -3 =5 and
8 - 5 =3.
