Combining two sets of numbers in Year One

In Year One this week the children have learnt to combine two sets of numbers. Initially they used the strategy of counting all, in which they had to begin with a part and add a second part. This has developed throughout the week and children began to explore efficient counting strategy in which they counted on from the greater part. They explored this strategy through a number of word problems and reasoning tasks, and enjoyed convincing and demonstrating their understanding to others!
