# STOCKBRIDGE COUNTS – ADDITION & SUBTRACTION

**OUR CURRENT FOCUS ACROSS THE SCHOOL IS ADDITION AND SUBTRACTION**

*From Tuesday 18th April to Friday 25th May
*

__What will this look like for my child?__

**Addition and subtraction within Early Level (Nursery and P1, but earlier or later for some)**

- Count items in one collection
- Establish a collection of a given numerosity (e.g. get me 6 counters from the group)
- Count items in two collections
- Count items in two collections
- With first collection screened
- With second collection screened
- With both collections screened
- Explore adding using a count-on strategy
- Explore doubles and near doubles
- Know doubles (1 to 5)

**Addition and subtraction within First Level (P2, P3 & P4, but earlier or later for some)**

- Add using a count-on strategy
- Subtract using a count-on or count-back strategy (e.g for 5 – 3, count on from 3 to 5 or count back from 5 to 3)
- Use doubles (and near doubles) in addition sums
- Add numbers to 20 using number bond facts, bridging through ten, doubles and near-doubles
- Subtract numbers to 20 using counting back, number bond facts, bridging through tens
- Add 3 numbers together (e.g. 7 + 2 + 6)

- Know and use addition and subtraction family facts (e.g. 6+3=9, 3+6=9, 9-3=6, 9-6=3)

- Add on multiples of ten to a 2-digit number (e.g. 45 + 20)

- Subtract multiples of ten from a 2-digit number (e.g. 72 – 40)
- Add tens and units with no regrouping (e.g. 34 + 21)
- Subtract tens and units with no regrouping (e.g. 76 – 35)
- Add tens and units with regrouping (e.g. 65 + 27)

Subtract tens and units with regrouping (e.g. 51 – 38)

**Addition and subtraction within Second Level (P5, P6 & P7, but earlier or later for some)**

- Add and subtract 2-digit numbers using a variety of strategies
- Add and subtract multiples of ten and hundred (e.g. 300 + 520)
- Use a variety of strategies to find a pair of numbers that add to make 100 (e.g. “What goes with 63 to make 100?”)
- Add and subtract 3-digit numbers using a variety of mental/written strategies e.g. 477+8, 534+40, 624-200 (mental) and 751-36, 621+185 (written)

- Identify the number partner to go with a decimal tenth to make one (e.g. “What goes with 0.3 to make 1?”)
- Identify the number partner to go with a decimal hundredth to make one (e.g. “What goes with 0.37 to make 1?”)
- Add and subtract decimal numbers using a variety of (written) strategies
- Add and subtract simple fractions e.g. ½ + ¼

# Primary 7 – Elections

Primary 7 have been learning about the Scottish Parliament this term. As part of their project they have created political party groups. They are running for election on Monday 20th March in front of the school. Each group has a Party Political Broadcast (PPB) which highlights some of their key areas within their manifestos. Each political party will be asked questions by the voters.

Have a look at the Party Political Broadcasts and take part in our poll to let us know who you think you’d like to see in power.

Good luck Primary 7!

**Scottish Biodiversity Party (SBP) – Lilla, Olivia and Vera**

**Scottish Equality Party (SEP) – Jay, Lawrence, Pedro and Thomas**

Scottish Environmental Educational Party (SEEP) – Adam, Danny, Finlay CN and Robert

**Scottish Fairtrade Party (SFP) – Finlay W, Lachlan, Nicholas and Witek**

**Scottish Life Party (SLP) – Aimee, Beau, Lexy and Savanna**

**Scottish Liberal Socalists (SLS) – Daniel, Marcelo, Ross and Sophia**

# Stockbridge Counts – Combining & partitioning & place value

**OUR CURRENT FOCUS ACROSS THE SCHOOL IS COMBINING & PARTITIONING AND PLACE VALUE**

*From Monday 20th February to Friday 31st March
*

__What will this look like for my child?__

**Combining & partitioning and place value within Early Level (Nursery and P1, but earlier or later for some)**

**Make finger patterns**:

- To show numbers 1 to 5 using one hand
- To show double patterns for 1 to 5 (two hands)
- To show doubles plus one patterns (two hands e.g. double 3 plus 1)
- To partition numbers (e.g. “Make 6 on your fingers. Can you make it another way?”)
- To partition 10 (e.g. 9 fingers up and 1 down shows 9 + 1 = 10

**Recognise flashed patterns (domino and random)**

- Explore partitions of numbers through dot patterns

**Combining & partitioning and place value within First Level (P2, P3 & P4, but earlier or later for some)**

**Combining and partitioning**

- Partition numbers up to ten into number bonds (e.g. know that 5 = 1 + 4 and so on)
- Use number bond knowledge to say what number gets us to/from a decade (e.g. 34 + ? = 40, 54 – ? = 50)

**Place value**

**Split a number containing tens and units**

- In a standard way e.g. (36 is 3 tens and 6 units)
- In a non-standard way (e.g. 36 is 2 tens and 16 units)

**Demonstrate how the value of a digit depends on where it is placed e.g. the 3 in 236 means 3 tens or 30**

**Split a number into its place value parts e.g. 364 = 300 + 60 + 4 (numbers up to 1000)**

**Combining & partitioning and place value within Second Level (P5, P6 & P7, but earlier or later for some)**

**Combining and partitioning**

- Partition 100 (e.g. 23 + ? = 100) to help with percentage calculations
- Partition 1000

**Place value**

- Demonstrate how the value of a digit depends on where it is placed (numbers up to 1 million)
- Split a number into its place value parts
- In the range 1 to 1000000
- For decimals up to 2 decimal places (e.g. 2.5 is 2 and 5 tenths)

- Split a decimal up in a non-standard way (e.g. 3.2 can be 2 and 12 tenths)
