Free Y1 maths worksheets: Making number stories

usingmaths1Continuing on the earlier theme of making number stories so that young children see that maths is related to the real world. The first looks at addition. Ask your child to write a simple number story for the sums. Ideas are provided but of course it is far better if they come up with their own sentences. (eg mum ate 2 rolls and dad ate 3 rolls. They ate 5 altogether.) The second looks at subtraction. One example is on the sheet. There are several ways of saying the subtraction sign (take away, less than etc). Encourage these different ways.
