Similar to the year 2 worksheets but with harder numbers. Children are asked to supply two whole numbers to make the answer total. Some children will have little experiences of this type of question, but will soon catch on to what is needed. Again, some will start with ‘safe’ answers such as 79 + 1 = 80, but should soon gain the confidence to show how good their addition skills are.
Each question asks for two solutions. Some children will repeat their answer by swapping the two numbers eg 30 + 40 = 70 and 40 = 30 = 70. Don’t make this an issue as it shows a very important concept has been understood: that addition can be done in any order.
