Year 5 Maths: Columnar Addition

By Miss Edwards on Thursday, October 12, 2017 in Maths, Year 5. 1 Comment

Today the children made a great start to using columnar addition. They have used place value counters to add two sets of numbers together.  This has deepened their understanding of why digits are carried over and how different place value columns can be affected by these calculations.  Great work!

    Good work, year 5. Ask the folks at home if they can explain why we write ‘the little 1’ when we are using column addition.
