Word Problem Wizards!

In our maths lessons this week, 1E have been solving addition problems. Using the different skills we have learnt, we split into groups to talk about how we could solve word problems.

We looked at vocabulary clues in the questions such as ‘altogether’ and ‘more’, these told us that we had to use addition to solve the problems.

We worked as a team to create our own word problems and then answered them in number sentences. It was lots of fun applying our counting skills to real life situations!

Challenge!

Can you answer these word problems and write the correct number sentence?

1. Mrs Carman had 14 sweets. Miss Sargent gave her 5 more. How many did Mrs Carman have altogether?

2. There were 34 sheep in a field. If 4 more sheep joined them, how many were in the field altogether?
