Year 1 adding and subtracting length resources
Topic: Measurement: length and height
This lesson focuses on adding and subtracting lengths and heights using standard and non-standard units. It is a longer presentation and may be best taught over 2 sessions – one on adding lengths and another on subtracting lengths.
Small Steps: Adding/subtracting length problems
NC Links: •Measure and begin to record lengths and heights •Compare, describe, and solve practical problems for lengths and heights (for example, long/short, longer/shorter. tall/short, taller/shorter). *Begin to use measuring tools such as a ruler.
*Solve one step problems that involve addition and subtraction.
TAF Statements: Working towards: Add and subtract one-digit numbers
Working At: Read scales in divisions of ones, twos, fives.
Greater depth: Use reasoning about number and relationship to solve more complex problems and explain their thinking.
Ready-to-progress criteria: 1AS-2 Read, write and interpret equations containing addition, subtraction and equals symbols and relate additive expression and equations to real life contexts.
Previous experience: Devise and record number stories using pictures, numbers and symbols.
