STOCKBRIDGE COUNTS – ADDITION & SUBTRACTION

OUR CURRENT FOCUS ACROSS THE SCHOOL IS ADDITION AND SUBTRACTION

From Monday 17th 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

P4 – 7 Sponsored Walk

Some pupils in the village of Mpeni in Malawi currently have to walk 6km to get to school and walk 6km to get back from school every day, as there are not enough classrooms at their local primary school. As such, we have decided to fundraise for additional classrooms. Each class has been participating in fundraising activities throughout the year, and we completed a sponsored walk.

On Wednesday 28th March Primary 4-7  classes completed a 12km sponsored walk. Thank you to Sainsbury’s for donating water and snacks to keep us going.

Thank you to all staff and parent helpers.

Take a look at the route we did twice: once in the morning and once and after lunch

Friends of Stockbridge Primary Charity Vacancy

Friends of Stockbridge School (SC042765) is a small local charity with close links to Stockbridge Primary School and seeks to support learning and development opportunities for the school and its pupils through charitable fundraising and grant funding. The charity is currently seeking a new volunteer to replace an existing trustee who is standing down in the near future. The charity has 4 trustees in total.

We would welcome any volunteers from the Stockbridge area who are independent of the school (e.g. no current direct connection to the school) who would be interested in the role to contact the charity on info@friendsofstockbridgeschool.org.uk. The role would require attending approximately 4 trustee meetings each year and some limited other work between meetings to support the charity aims.
