Your 9 to 10 year old child will now be using formal algorithms using two and three digit numbers.
There will also be a focus on using mathematical language to explain the process.
These fun games will help your child develop their addition skills:

• Greedy Pig: This is a fun game for all the family. The winner is the ‘greedy pig’ that has the highest total before a two is rolled. The first person will roll the dice and write down their total. They are then asked if they want to stay a greedy pig or sit down. The dice is then continued to be rolled until the last person is standing. If a two is rolled then all the greedy pigs lose and the person who sat down is a winner.

• Magic number: Use a calendar at home, get your child to find a magic number, e.g. ask them to find diagonal numbers to add to that total. Encourage them to use formal algorithms to check their answers.
